I had my first experience when i was 16, i was at my job and the pain took over... i fell down and began sweating profusly but freezing. I really thought i was dying i know that sounds pathetic but i had never experienced that level of pain. I went home, i have no idea how i managed to drive home and my mother just brushed it off telling me i was just having cramps to go lay down. I dealt with it till i was 18 and moved in with my boyfriend. He told me it was not normal and we needed to seek medical help that is when i learned i had endometriosis. However i had a falling out with that doctor. This is a big deal to me, and he just brushed off my worries of surgery as though i was stupid for being afraid, so i decided to stop seeing him. Since my regular doctor has put me on pain medicine for the pain, however the more i look into that the more i realize it can damage my body-therefore i am looking into another option. I had never really thought about it before...but my husband and i have decided that we would like to start a family, however the more i research the more i see that the endo can hinder that. We have been trying since our marriage 2 years ago... using basil temps, ovulation tests...etc...and nothing..ever month right on cue...the pain takes over and i am useless. It is horrible because it affects my job terribley..my boss is a man and doesn't understand...and i can't do anything when the pain takes over... what i am looking for here is any help...advice on how to cure the pain with out the meds and if anyone has advice on how to get pregnant without having the surgery...i know it seems so simple...but it terrifies me i have never had surgery. Thank you so much in advance.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
