endo+pcos

Hi Wray, I have endometriosis and pcos and trying to get pregnant. I never had pain during my periods but my ovulations hurt really bad. I also have bleeding during ovulation.I started using natpro at the begining of ovulation and pcos formula.

I'm using the ovulation strip test and sliva test to determine ovulation. But the pain starts couple days before the ovulation and my question is if I start using Natpro when the pain starts am I going to ruin my ovulation? And is there anything I can do to stop the bleeding because I'm afraid that bleeding is stopping the conception. Thanks.

Hi Daniela Ovulation pain occurs in about 20% of women, it can be very painful, and bleeding can occur too, but it's nothing to worry about. It's known as Mittelschmerz, see here and here. So continue using the progesterone at ovulation as you are. I see you must have read our page on PCOS. Please have a vitamin D test done, as any inflammation indicates it's too low. Both Endometriosis and PCOS are the result of oxidative stress, which ultimately leads to inflammation. Although there is vitamin D in the complex, it might not be enough if your level is very low. It's safe to use more, ie 10,000 or 20,000iu's per day. It's essential to get your level up to 70-100ng/ml per day, and not the 30ng/ml the labs and doctors use as a cut off point. Please see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth and Birmingham Hospital websites. This is an excellent video on pregnancy and vitamin D to watch too, see here. I'm running out of space so will start a new comment below. Take care Wray

Hi Daniela Vitamin D is not only essential for ovulation, but for a successful pregnancy and vital for a growing foetus too, see here, here, here, here and here. This is an excellent video to watch too, see here. Finally you might not have seen our page on Pregnancy, which explains the role progesterone plays and how to use it when pregnant. Take care Wray
