I'm 32 years old and have been diagnosed with endometriosis, which is interfering with my ability to get pregnant. I've been reading about the influence of free radicals in endometriosis. Can you explain what this is?
I am 24 years old and have been dealing with endometriosis for four years. I have had four laparoscopies and have been on a slew of medications with little relief. My doctor has mentioned removing my ovaries. Are there any benefits to this surgery? What are the drawbacks, particularly given my age?
In 2002, the surgeon found endometriosis on my uterus and removed the uterus, although I retained my ovaries. Recently, I have had difficulties with urinary tract infections. How does a doctor determine if any of the endometrial tissue has grown back? I worry this may be the cause of the urinary problems I have been experiencing.
