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.

Mirena

Anyone on Mirena? Can you tell me about it? To keep my estrogen levels down to that the endo doesn't grow, my doctor and i were talking about Mirena because its estrogen free. THt along with a healthy diet and exercise... when i'm not in pain :(

I have only had a Mirena IUD. But the meds in it didn't make me crazy. I really liked it, but my cervex rejected having a foreign object. Sorry that is all I know.

Hey hun!

Its really hard to go by what other people say because everyone reacts completely different.
I have had Mirena for 2 years and i have break thru bleeding and horrible pain- because it has not stopped my endo. Its been getting worse and worse for me.
All you can do is give it a go. If it doesnt work, have it removed.

Good luck with it, i hope it works better for you than it has for me!

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
