Has anyone tried anything? I've been reading up on natural supplements for Endo, but I'm not sure which ones are just to treat endo and which ones you could use when you are TTC?
For example, progesterone cream. Do you use it your entire cycle or would that mess up ovulation? What about Vitex or flaxseed oil? Thanks for your input!

progestrone cream should be used only after Ovualtion as far as I am aware.

as far as Vitex. I took it and I really never seen a difference minus it did help me O every month. It didn't help my endo pain or anything.

Im not really sure about flaxseed oil at all.

I highly recommend that you speak with your dr though before trying any herbal remedy though because if you read closely at some you can only take them at certain points in your cycle which means you have to be certain of when your O'ing.

Good luck hun! & If I am wrong about anything I posted please someone correct me. I just am going by my own thoughts of how I understand things & for Vitex I took it and can only give my personal expereince

You're right about the progesterone creams. If you read up on soy isoflavones they are supposed to help with endo, slowing the growth some. Soy also helps with ovulation you just can't take it at the same time as Vitex because they'll cancel each other out. Other than that the only think I know of is changing your diet. No wheat, full fat dairy, soy, sugars, red meat......very hard to follow. If you decide to try the endo diet there are lots of sites about it. Just keep in mind that you ARE supposed to eat/drink full fat dairy products when TTC, they have more estrogen in them or something along those lines.
