Cups don't cause endometriosis in one person at least....

Well, I have proof positive that use of a menstrual cup for about a year doesn't cause endometriosis - not in me, at least.

As part of my infertility investigations I had a laparoscopy last week. I had always wondered if I might have endometriosis because I have very painful periods, but now it appears it must just be part of the PCOS. Anyway, the 'scope demonstrated once and for all that I really don't have endometriosis - and since I have been using a cup for nearly a year, this means that the cup also didn't cause endometriosis! So in a sample size of 1 (me) there is proof positive that short term menstrual cup use doesn't cause endometriosis.

So should I write myself up for publication in a medical journal, do you think? ;) Anyway, I thought this might be of interest to this community, though I don't know what tag this should go under....
