Genetics, estrogen metabolism, diet, stress, gut health, and unhealed emotional wounds all play a role. Consider working with a holistic gynecologist. ...Read more

Find an advocate!: You haven't given much information about what situation you're in, but you may need someone to help sort things out and even advocate for you.

You may make some waves, but you may see results. Lgromko. ...Read more

Can you explain utereroscopy and if it's usually done as a next step for ESWL that didn't work? Would it be one treatment & what is the success rate?
