While I didn't have endo, it's my understanding that estrogen, which is produced by the ovaries, feed endo. Also, endo can also produce estrogen on its own, so if there were some microscopic endo in you than they could continue to grow. Endo is a very complicated disease and one that we still don't have all the answers for.

I was diagnosed with endo in 1990 and am still looking for answers (yep, 14 years and many docs later).

My current, very sympathetic gyn says he wishes he had a magic wand he could wave over my tummy and make me all better.

Until that magic wand is invented .... all I can suggest is read, read, read. Knowledge is power.

Best wishes!
