Since being diagnosed with endometriosis at the start of the year and following laparoscopic surgery for treatment, I struggled with severe pelvic pain and cramps. The pain and medication required to manage the pain itself were hugely impacting my life. Some days I was unable to get out of bed without strong pain medication. I decided to try acupuncture after being recommended by a friend and trying all other alternatives treatments.
Within two months, acupuncture had given my life back to me. I am now pain-free and am no longer reliant on medication to manage my condition. I have been able to exercise pain-free again and attend university, and work no longer worrying about potential pelvic pain or cramps.
