Juliepants:  Painful. Lots of crying. I often couldn’t move or have sex and would get a sharp stabbing pain in my abdomen. It wasn’t confirmed until I got the surgery but it was worth it since I actually needed to have a cyst removed from my ovary. My BC helps so that the pain isn’t a daily/weekly struggle. I was told that my chances of having children were slim and since my DH has his own medical issues it looks like we will either choose to be CBC or adoptive parents.

they put me on birth control when i was 17 but honestly i think it made it worse thats when my symptoms started going out of control ive been to the hospital many times bent over in pain and they woud do nothing but tell me to take ibuprofen. i was uninsured at the time so i went to an obgyn through a program for people with no income and thats when she told me me she was almost sure that what is was but i was only nineteen and to be honest i didnt believe surgery was the only way to discover it. I shouldve have done some research. im insured now but  my family practitioner is dragging his feet for a referral to obgyn and then the long appt. wait begins so or now the only way ive found to ease the pain and be able to function at this point is vicodin and hot compressesand they only dull the ain My stomach is developing sever stretch marks from theway it swells so quickly and this is really the only conversation ive found about it though so im glad google was so helpful this time its nice to know im not losing my mind 🙂

Juliepants:  I am 27 years old and had a tubal litigation 2 years ago come May. Since that time I have had heavy and very painful menstral cycles. About 2 weeks ago I began experiencing severe pain in my lower abdomen and it started to hurt to touch my stomach anywhere. I began my 2nd menstruation of the month, it resembled coffee grounds and was very heavy but, only lasted about 4 days. Since the time the pain has only gotten worse and now feels as though someone is squeezing my uterus and left ovary, the pain radiates to my back and down my left leg! I have had several test and my doctor told me “some people just have pain without a cause for it.” I have a ct scan in the morning. I’m just wondering if anyone has had similar symptoms with endo?

I had 2 ovarian cysts the size of grapefruit that had to be removed. I never really noticed there was anything wrong in the beginning; I just thought I was having crazy heavy periods. In hindsight though, I realize the cramps were stronger than usual and sex was increadibly painful unless it was shallow and slow.

What really sucked was after the surgery – because of their size they could not be removed laproscopically. I needee to be opened up like a c-sec. Having to stand up, sit down, walk, piss, shit, sleep etc was a nightmare because of the pain. It’s been 6 months and Im all better now 🙂
