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, I am new to this site. Does anyone else have horrible/crippling pains during the first few days of menstrual cycle and then none other times? I have horrible bloating, hurts to move and touch stomach, and hurts really bad to use the restroom (#1 & #2). There have been times it makes it hard to move or breathe, makes me sweaty all of a sudden, and makes me feel like I am going to pass out. I...

    Hello All--I am new to this group. After having endo since what is looking like 7th grade, at the age of 30 (birthday was just a week ago!) I am at my lowest low. I am so tired of it all. I've had so many chocolate cysts, I don't even have one of my ovaries anymore. In fact, I'm on the train now heading to my ob-gyn for yet another ultrasound, as we suspect I have another one of those damn cysts....

    Feeling a little frustrated

    2
    I was diagnosed by my gyn with endo about 6 years ago. She put me on an IUD and I had that up until about sept 2015 I was having panic attacks (never had them before) and it was about time to have my IUD changed and had read up on it and that it can cause anxiety and panic attack increases especially when its time for a new one. So I had it removed for about a week and couldn't handle the pain...

    Venting

    2
    Its my first time posting, I just feel like I need to otherwise I may end it here.I've suffered with depression and anxiety for years and when I was diagnosed with endo in 2015. I found through research and my own personal battles what endo causes. Its not just a invisible disease it causes so much more and takes so much from life. This pain is connected to much more including mental issues. Yet...

    being sick flares up my endo symptoms

    2
    How can I feel better? after, literally, a second in the washroom my bladder starts screaming again. Ive been sick and miserable for the last 6 days, and its been my throat. So, obviously lots and lots of liquids are a cure for a sore throat but it flares up my symptoms and makes me grumpy. I hate it... I was planning to do errands today but my body is pulling me down. And I want to just pull out...

    Hi friends and fellow endo sufferers,I am new here and need to vent (SO badly) and bounce ideas off of people who actually understand what I'm talking about! It's probably going to be long winded, here we go...For starters, I'm 24, a newlywed (got married just over a month ago), and have been diagnosed with endometriosis (at 18), interstitial cystitis (at 19) and hypertonic pelvic floor...

    Pain killer

    Anyone know of the anti-inflammatory (for joint pain mainly) that is the LEAST hard on your stomach? My doctor put me on arthrotec (although I don't have arthritis, but can't move my joints AT ALL anymore) and it basically made me unable to eat or leave the bathroom within 4 days. Now I am back to horrible joint pain and nothing to take for it. I have endo in my bowels, which has really worsened...

    Has anyone been on Visanne long term?

    0
    Hi - I have been on Visanne for a year and eight months now. I was concerned about how long I could safely take this pill...online there are commments about it being safe to take for two or three years only. I have had few side effects ( compared to the Mirena which was horrible) and I am simply terrified of dealing with the level of pain I had before all this. Is there any one who has used this...

    Going a little crazy

    I'm in a bit of a crappy situation and am tired of succumbing my boyfriend to all the complaints or venting. I'm going to start off saying this, I have not been diagnosed with Endo. Probably seems weird since I'm posting here, but I very strongly believe that is what I'm going through. "Why haven't you gone to the doctor then?" I have. It started back in Aug or so when I started getting sharp...
