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 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...

    Hello everyone. I am new to the group and just looking to see if anyone is experiencing what I am. I am 29 years old and was diagnosed with endo about a year and a half ago. I have always had painful periods, even though I have been on the pill since I was 19. Endo is hereditary in my female, my mother had it and had a full hysterectomy in her late 40s. I got diagnosed due to pain and numbness in...

    Sick of feeling like this :(

    Hi, I'm not sure of I have endometriosis yet or not but want to write here anyway. My doctor sent me for a ultrasound and transvaginal scan as she thinks I might have endometriosis. The scans came back saying I had a thicker than usual lining at the top of my womb and she has referred me to a gynaecologist to see if it's endometriosis or a fibroid or to see why my lining is so thick. I am 26 and...

    Post surgery (#4) fo Endo

    0
    I saw a specialist and had robotic surgery to remove all endo and scar tissue caused from tissue in may, and I feel like my immune system is just not bouncing back. Before this last surgery, I was in bed for almost a year due to severe pain when breathing (and everything else basically) because all of my insides were stuck together. I lost a large portion of my muscle, so my recovery seems very...

    Medical Exams

    0
    I have an ultrasound coming up, and I am anxious about it since its painful for me. Does anyone else have pain when getting medical exams?  :( I tend to avoid them because it hurts, esp. as I think one of my symptoms of endometriosis is bladder control. I get pain from a "not so full bladder", and just imagine having to be forced to drink water and have someone push on your pelvic area, its...

    I wouldn't wish this on anyone

    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,...

    pain management while working/cannabis?

    2
    Hello ladies, I just got a new job and it requires me to be on my feet a lot. It's a retail store which means that I'm standing at a register, walking around a lot, etc. I have been lucky enough that I've been resting for the last two weeks since I was in the ER for pain and blood in my urine (it was determined to be related to endo and the cyst I have) which has been a HUGE HELP in managing my...

    I am confused about finding an endo specialist

    8
    I have been doing some digging in regards to finding a specialist, especially one with payment plans for patients with no insurance, in the Dallas, TX area. However, online all of the people I am finding are fertility doctors and talking about IVF and stuff.I am not looking to have any more children so not really interested in that. Does anyone know how to find a regular endo specialist, or are...

    endo and hypoglycemia

    I was just wondering if anyone experiences hypoglycemia along with endo. I've read a few medical articles that state there can be a correlation between the two... may just be two totally unrelated things. I just found it ironic that I did not start experiencing the hypoglycemic symptoms until my latest flare ups and hormonal issues... Just wondering.

    First laparoscopy

    0
    I have had just about all the symptoms for endo starting within a year or two of starting my period but doctors always brushed me off as normal. When I was 18 my doctor suggested I had endo and put me on birth control, it was horrible. Long story short, this last year has been absolutely miserable and I finally got a doctor to do a laparoscopy because I was convinced I have endometriosis and...
