Editor's Note: After 12 years of being on the pill and four rounds of hormones for egg donations and two in vitro fertilization treatments, the author at Single Infertile Female is going natural. It's been a little over a year for her and her body is finally returning to natural, predictable cycles. In this post, she shares her battle with endometriosis and her hope to treat her symptoms in a way that won't negatively impact her ability to conceive. -- AVF
I started on the pill when I was 13 years old, because my first few periods were pretty heavy and excruciatingly painful. Looking back now, I think that was the first indication that something may have been wrong, but starting on the pill so soon is what kept the endo at bay until my mid twenties. And for that, I am thankful.

I'm treating stage IV endometriosis naturally, and successfully. I’ve been doing so for almost a year now, and I’m still feeling good. Strong. Healthy.
