@MsYellowJacket:  I’m really surprised you don’t have endometriosis.  I’m not much help since I get pretty bad pelvic pain but no fibroids or cysts.

yeah i would love to be off BC since blood clots run in my family, but thats almost not an option. I tried it for about a year and it got so bad i had to get back on it.

i hope you figure it out!!!

@MsYellowJacket:  Actually yes.  While many women develop endometriosis in their teens, some start developing it in their mid twenties when their cycles normalize some.

I’d consider another laproscopy if you can talk your OBGYN into it.

I have also been gifted with the worst cramps/pain imaginable. I had mirena inserted and it has stopped any breakthrough bleeding that birth control pills had, but now the cramps are worse. oh joy, rapture. 

 

This explains a lot. On the left: a shark brain. on the right: a uterus. I’m calling my period shark week from now on. 😉

@eliwhit: Bahahaha love.

I’m on AF right now (urgh) and have both PCOS and Endo. Your symptoms sound similar. Like another bee suggested, I would ask for another laparoscopic surgery. I’m having another one in December just “to check.” Ohhhh joy, right?

Sorry you have to deal with this too – sometimes it feels like too much. And then other women are like “It can’t be THAT bad, mine are just fine, I go play superwoman when I have mine.” I’m like……. you better back up. Lol

Sorry that we all are dealing with this…

I was diagnosed with what appears to be one massive uterine fibroid. Its been consistently growing and causing havoc – intense cramps, breakthrough bleeding, threating to lessen my chances of carrying a baby to term, etc. – in my life. The “Martian” aka fibroid has caused my uterus to become three times the size it should be. The top of my uterus is slightly above my belly button when it should be below my pelvic! 15cm x 12cm…yikes!!!! With work, the wedding, and everything else I’ve decided to have the fibroid removed next month. The surgeon wants to do a lateral myomectomy because of the size. I’m scared, but it has to be done.

I can relate!  I’ve had polyps, cysts, fibroids, you name it.  I first started experiencing terrible pain when I was 23, and the docs couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me.  WELL, a trip to the ER (yes, it got that bad) and a hysterosalpingogram later, they found I had a HUGE fibroid – the size of “a large orange.” Apparently, it was very usual for someone so young to have a fibroid that large. 

I still can’t believe the docs were unable to detect it for so long (about a year) and that I had to suffer while they subtely hinted that it was perhaps “in my head.”  I share my story with lots of friends to stress to them that if you feel something is wrong, trust your gut! Get a second opinion, do whatever it takes. 

OP, don’t give up.  Keep pressing if you feel you aren’t being taken seriously.

@HueysLuda – You will be soooo happy once that surgery is done.  I am so thankful for my surgery…it helped me lead a normal life again.  My fibroid was very large too…Two docs passed on treating me because it was so large and I was too young for a hysterectomy.  I found an AMAZING oncologist who agreed to treat me even though I was not a cancer patient.  One quick surgery and he removed the intense debilitating pain I had suffered for over a year.
