Who You Need on Your Endo Care Team (Not Just A Doctor!)

Scarlet Period Blog | Who should be on your Endo Care Team

Living with endometriosis is no walk in the park. It requires a holistic approach and a supportive team to help you manage symptoms and live your best life.
Here are some key players you should consider including in your endo dream team.


Endo Excision Specialist

This is your endometriosis MVP. Find a specialist experienced in performing excision surgery, the gold standard for removing endo lesions.


Mental Health Therapist

Endo can take a toll on your mental well-being. A therapist can provide support, coping mechanisms, and guidance in navigating the emotional challenges that come with chronic illness.


Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist

This specialist can help you manage pelvic pain and other symptoms associated with endo through targeted exercises and techniques. There are also a plethora of online videos that can help you with typical exercises.



If you experience endo-related urinary issues, a urologist can help diagnose and treat these specific concerns.


Registered Dietician/Nutritionist

Working with a dietician can help you optimise your diet (hello, gut-friendly recipes!) to manage inflammation, support hormonal balance, and improve your overall well-being.


Pain Management Specialist

Chronic pain can be a major challenge with endo. A pain management specialist can help you develop a personalised plan to manage pain effectively.



If you experience digestive issues alongside your endo symptoms, consulting a gastroenterologist can help rule out other conditions and develop a trusty treatment plan.


Remember, you will always be your best advocate. Trust your gut when something doesn’t feel right. And if a specialist doesn’t make you feel heard and supported, thank you NEXT!
