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.

    Lupron question

    Hi! I just got my first lupron shot yesterday and was wondering how long it took to kick in? It's been a few years since I have been on it and I don't remember. I have had a bad headache ALL day and nothing has helped it. Maybe it's the Lupron?

    Hello,I am new to this group. When I did the ultrasound in 2006, I knew that I have had a small cyst. After 10 years around, I just wanted to make sure how the cysts are going.

A little back pain when I...

    Hi,I have a long story but I am hoping to find some support here.  I got my period when I was 10 years old.  They were very very heavy from the very beginning.  I had awful cramps and IBS.  As I got into my teens I developed ovarian cysts and was put on the pill for several years and it helped with the pain and bleeding.  Once I went off it things returned to the way they were before. I got...

    This is the first support group I have joined, and I must say today I am in need to hear something positive, to hear some sort of Success Story. Unfortunately, I think the years of down playing the pain, and writing everything off to be "normal," has finally taken its toll and caught up to me. For the last 12 months of the year, I have lived the last 9 months with a chronic yeast infection and...
