I have had endometriosis since I was 13 or 14. The pain was unbearable for years and since having my two children it has got better but is coming back. Over the last couple of years I have begun to have painful periods and stomach problems. I also have pain with ovulation sometimes so bad that I can hardly walk or sit or go to the bathroom. Recently I have had a lot of bladder infections(4 in the last five months) and they always seem to come not too long after my periods finish. My doctor sent me for an ultrasound of my pelvis and kineys. At the end of the exam the tech. asked me if I had had any operations. I told her that it was a long time ago but I had had three Laproscopies. Then she asked me if I still had my ovaries. This has kind of freaked me out and I have still not heard from my doctor but given my history I am thinking it may be time for me to consider a hysterectomy. I am worried about the hormone replacement however. I am 38 and have six kids (two are mine and four are his and we all live together) so fertility is no longer an issue. What do you think?

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...
