I just got my endometrial Biopsies results back and was told i have Chronic Endometritis. I was put on an antibiotic which will hopefully bring down the inflammation and pain. Since im so new to my PCOS diagnosis i was wondering if this was a typical infection associated with pcos? A couple weeks ago i was on antibiotics for a vaginitis infection. I was told my abnormal bleeding was associated with THAT infection. After that course of antibiotics was still having abnormal bleeding so im kind… read more
I thought you might have endometriosis when I read your previous post. I'm so sorry!
PCOS is inflammation and many think it's an autoimmune disease. What I learned after being diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis is that autoimmune diseases tend to go hand in hand wirh each other unfortunately. And yes, PCOS is often associated with Hashimoto's thyroiditis and endometriosis, which is why I recommend getting tested for thyroid and autoimmune antibodies when diagnosed with PCOS, so that you know whether an autoimmune protocol diet might be helpful to you.
The acupuncturist who diagnosed my PCOS recommended to remove gluten and dairy on top of all sugar except from fruit (and cutting drastically on carbs). I'm not there yet but know I could possibly even reverse my thyroiditis if I removed gluten, which does seem like a trigger for me according to the tests Ive done on myself...
I wonder if acupuncture can help with endometriosis. It's been very helpful to me!
The only thing I’ve read is that PCOS is an auto-immune condition, which pre disposes us to alot of problems. I’ve had brochitus, Pneumonia, stepticocis A, yeast infections, shingles.... so our bodies are much weaker and dont fight off infections well. I clearly remember getting shingles and the doctor looking at me saying you know shingles is very rare for young people to get and thats when I put two and two together that my pcos condition was the reason my body isn’t strong at fighting things off,it’s veey important to change our diet and do some form of being active so that we can help build good white blood cell count to fight off hinfection and make sure all organs are working properly so they can do thrur job, it’s a struggle I know but doctors will never go so indepth, I’ve read many books on health that had reliable sources but it’s important to see the information with your own eyes. The body is a very complex thing. ❤️ hope this helps.
I'm really glad I can help!
I just removed gluten and dairy for a month, then reintroduced dairy and didn't find much difference, but felt immediately bloated when I reintroduced gluten, mostly when in highly processed foods...
I didn't know about the type of testing you mentioned; so interesting!
@A myPCOSteam Member That is excellent advice thank you! I will be sure to ask the doctor to test for those! Thats amazing were you using muscle testing to figure out your triggers? A couple years ago a nutritionist found that i had sensitivity to corn oil and soy. I found it was a huge change when i cut those two out just overall health wise, my mother in law sent me becaause i was overweight
and she wanted grandbabies. I went because it was free and i fugured it could only help Lol. Now knowing i have a diagnosis it might be good to go back and see what they can do specifically for PCOS. Thank you for all your advice! You have shared some great advice and i truely appreciate it.
