The right contraceptive for endo

Can I ask what people are happy on taking any type of contraception to help with endo as I cant find the right pill. I really suffer with my lower back knees thighs very painful. I have a arthritic type of sensation pain in both knees.

  1. Hey , while I was reluctant to go towards anything hormonal, in the end I agreed and it made my life so much easier. I was on the pill-form of the provera shot, which I must add, is NOT considered a form of contraception, but a hormonal treatment for endometriosis. I came off it only two months ago, and I think I will probably miss it.

    And I also have similar issues with my knees. My physio recommended I started doing squats daily, and it has helped a lot with the pain, and that “arthritic” sensation. Have you seen a PT about this sort of discomfort? - Jessie (team member)

    1. No not seen a PT yet. I didn’t know there was a pill form of the depo. Why did you come if it ? if u don’t mind me asking. Thankyou for your reply and I will give some gentle squats ago I’ve also invested in a stationary exercise bike see if that helps. Thanku x


      1. hiya! I came off it because I’d been on it for over two years, and I was experiencing some symptoms that were making me a tad anxious, like migraines and other things, so I decided to give myself a break. I also don’t think these meds were designed for me to be on them forever, as much as they made my life so much easier. I hope this helps? A stationary bike is a great idea, I did that for a while (gently though) and it helped too. - Jessie (team member)
