EFA’s Sixth Annual Medical Conference: Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning

From adolescence through menopause

Sarah Berga, MD


In my training I am really a neuroscientist, in my practice every day I see patients who nobody else wants to take care of anymore. I am asked to solve all sorts of unusual endocrine problems. We make a lot of diagnoses and a lot of referrals to standard endocrinologists because we find a lot of endocrine disease in our infertility and endocrine populations. Really the inspiration for today’s talk is to teach everyone a little endocrinology who wants to lean it. I never try to force anyone into this but it is important to understand that not all hormones are the same and how to use them wisely.


As you know there are lots of recommendations out there and if you just actually collate the entire universe of recommendations you will be incredibly confused. Part of actually being able to sift and sort through the recommendations is understanding some of the biology. I am actually going to focus a little bit on physiology as it relates to stage of life because I think that is part of the problem…

    After years of excessively painful periods, a serious loss of quality of life, and a series of uninformed and uninterested doctors, Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein turned my life around. I was told I woke up from my surgery almost a year ago with a smile on my face, and I haven't stopped since. Before I heard of Dr. Seckin,…

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…

    Dr. Seckin and his staff spared me from years and years of heavy periods and unbearable endometriosis pain. After having surgery with him (my first) I can now function like a regular human. No more eating NSAIDs like candy and calling out sick from work. Thank you, Dr. Seckin!

  • Sheena Wright

    I underwent surgery with Dr. Seckin in 2017 and have felt like a new woman ever since. If you have, or suspect you have endometriosis, Dr. Seckin and his compassionate team of surgeons and staff are a must-see.

    I have struggled with endometriosis and adenomyosis since first starting my period at 13. I was diagnosed at 21 and what followed was a series of unsuccessful surgeries and treatments. My case was very aggressive and involved my urinary tract system and my intestines. After exhausting all of my local doctors I was lucky enough to find Dr. Seckin. We…

    Seckin and Dr. Goldstein changed my life!

  • Kristin Sands

    Like so many women who have tirelessly sought a correct diagnosis and proper, thorough medical treatment for endometriosis, I found myself 26 years into this unwanted journey without clear answers or help from four previous gynecological doctors and two emergency laparoscopic surgeries. I desperately wanted to avoid the ER again; a CT scan for appendicitis also revealed a likely endometrioma…
