Depo or Iud?

Due to blood clots and a massive pulmonary embolism, I have been taken off my birth control pills. I've been put on blood thinners and experienced internal bleeding in my back and ovary from implants. I was put back on the hospital for a week. When we followed up with my gyn, my two choices are an IUD or the depo shot. I'm leaning towards the shot, but just needed any feedback anyone had. I'm about to turn 36 and in about 6 months my husband and I are going to make a decision about kids and my… read more

Is there any way to medically get an indication of your fertility, without actually trying to get pregnant?

I have known from a very young age that the biggest dream in my life is to be a mother. To be pregnant, to create life. I literally dream about it.

Note, I do not see this in a naive / romanticised light as I helped raise my two nephews.

I'm in a loving serious relationship and we know that we want to have children together, but we also know that we don't want that now.

I am newly diagnosed, and from what… read more

Should I Seek A Second Opinion?

So I've been diagnosed with endometriosis. My doctor said it was all over my abdomen. Especially in the lower pelvis. But also on the abdominal wall and several organs. She didn't give me a stage or specifics. Just indicated on an abdominal cutaway picture where it was. Which didn't tell me much. But she says because of where it is she can't remove any of it without damaging my organs. Like my colon, intestines, bladder, uterus, etc. Kind of wish she hadn't been in a rush to finish… read more

Marana

I had the Marana but in back in Nov. Everything thing seemed to be going good but now I'm getting really nauseous. My period lighted up about 2 months ago but this period towards the end I am having to take dramanie to settle my stomach. Have any of you had this happen? I've been fine other than now with the nausea.

What do you tell people who think surgery is a cure?

People obviously don't understand this disease. Even less so, the "treatment options"... I ended up having a hysterectomy because I had endo growing all over the outside of my uterus. However, everyone around me seems to think that means I'm cured. Anyone else have this experience? What do you say/how do you handle it?
