Connection with Endo and Periodontal Disease...

A friend of mine sent me this article.

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - The results of a study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility suggest a possible association between endometriosis and periodontal disease.

That is so interesting. I just had endo removed and I know I have gingivitis too. hmmm...never would have thought there might me a connection. I'll have to remember this. THanks for the info. :)

Oh, you're just all sunshine and roses, aren't you? I've already got IBS from the endo - now you tell me it's going to plague the other end of the tract, too? Humbug.

This is really interesting!

I don't have the pink nice gums that other people have. Those pink comes are unattainable in my world. I brush & floss daily but I can't seem to get the plaque under control. It's under control but I have to spend my days brushing constantly! It sucks! The dentist doesn't say anything. He says my teeth look great but its wierd. I know my mouth is different.

Oh and after surgery this is so gross, my breath just got completely out of control. So the dentist gave me a tongue brusher thing, which I hate and always makes me gag, which always makes me think I am pregnant! hahaha Just kidding! I wonder if there is a connection?

This is really interesting. I have never heard of it before. I really hope though that it is not true. I am not looking forward to that. Oh, my precious teeth ;)
How are things going? Anything new on the ttc front?
I am praying for you!!!
