I recently (finally) got diagnosed with endo stage II after 6+ years of being passed from physician to physician, mostly telling me my pain was psychosomatic.
I explained this to my doctor to see if there were other options, but he said no that Dienogest was the only medication he knew that would hopefully stop the endo from growing back. His response was essentially, just take the pill, that's the only option.
I'm hoping to learn if there are other women out there who have foregone HRT, and how that decision impacted them. Or whether HRT is truly the only option to "ensure" that my endo doesn't progress and impact my fertility and other organs.
Is there a way to stop endo from getting worse without hormone treatment? If so, what treatments do you use? From what I read, I assume not, but I'm just scratching the surface of understanding this disease...
Sorry for the long message, thanks for anyone who can respond <3
