Endometriosis Support Group

Endometriosis is a common medical condition where the tissue lining the uterus is found outside of the uterus, typically affecting other organs in the pelvis. The condition can lead to serious health problems, primarily pain and infertility. A major symptom of endometriosis is pain, mostly in the lower abdomen, lower back, and pelvic area.

    Hi there,I'm just wanting to introduce myself. Im 27 years old I've had strange periods since I was about 16. At 16 I had stabbing pains in my stomach and I bled through my clothes every 2 weeks or there abouts. At that time, they said I had polycystic ovaries (nothing about my womb) and put me on the pill. Now I've been on this pill for about 5 years with regular, heavy periods but not as bad as...

    I was diagnosed with endometriosis about 3 years ago when I was 25. I've always had the typical painful periods. But then it got so bad that I was in the emergency often because I really thought my appendix of gallbladder needed to be removed. And I felt like I would die whenever I would have a bowel movement on my period. Everything has pretty much been localized to my right side. Last year,...

I am also hypothyroid and maybe have pcos (I failed the ogtt miserably and have had high testosterone at times,...

    UTI?

    I've never had a UTI before so I'm not sure if this is even what is going on. A little background first, I have endo but don't usually have any daily endo pain or anything. But after I got my first lap in Nov. '11 to remove large chocolate cysts from both ovaries, I get lower back pain much more often. Anyway, for the past few days I've noticed my lower back has really been bothering me,...

I started my period when I was ten, and the bleeding has always been quite heavy but the pain, over time, has gotten worse and worse. My pain is at a constant 6/10 and only goes up from there, it is most painful between my hips through my uterus,...

I'm 29 years old and they have me on lupron and have no hope of conceiving children. Sex with my husband is if not impossible, excruciatingly painful. I sleep at least 12 hours a day. A year ago I was the director of a successful...
