This article makes me very, very sad to read. I have been suffering from Endometriosis for 10 years now and have not received any relief. I have had 5 laparoscopies, 1 appendectomy (they removed it in case it burst and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between it bursting and general endo pain), 3 rounds of lupron, continuous birth control for 12 years and I am only 24 years old.

Pregnancy is not a cure all, and many women's pain will come back after they give birth. To simply say that a woman should get pregnant as soon as she is able is RIDICULOUS. Your ignorance with this disease is shining bright, and you need a reality check.

Next time do more research..perhaps field research. Go online and find a message board (dailystrength.org has a great one) for women suffering from Endometriosis and actually ask them questions. You'll find that this disease isn't as black and white as your ignorance is making it out to be.

The fact that your editor allowed this piece of rubbish to be published is beyond me. Do some real research with your next piece and know that what you write will impact the women who read the articles. We are writing these comments to help save lives and to help educate any women who read this and may actually want to trust what you have to say.

Do some field work. Get an editor. Try again.
