I just began treatment recently. I did some research but it would be nice to hear from someone who is experiencing it first hand.
I’ve never done well with most forms of hormonal BC, so my doc recommended the Kyleena IUD and I had it placed a little over a month ago. I know it’s too early to expect it to be helping with period and endo pain yet, but I’m curious if anyone who has had a hormonal IUD for a while has seen any improvements from it?
How long did it take yall to get pregnant after IUD removal?
Hi, I am 24 and I was diagnosed with endometriosis 1.5 months ago by ultrasound. I have one cyst on both ovaries, one of them 6 cm and other one is 4 cm. My gynecologist suggest me laparoscopical surgery or taking Visanne and I chose taking Visanne. Everything was fine till the last week and I've had no side effects.

I just had a CT scan done two days ago, and apparently a "simple appearing left adnexal cyst measuring 2.7 cm" was found.

There isn't much online about the combination pill vs the progesterone pill for endo, I… read more
Really struggling with amount of blood and clotting. I’ve basically been bleeding for weeks at a time on and off since September, I saw/ told my surgeon/obgyn last week who put me on a different birth control. Pain is horrible but really want to focus on if there are any methods (preferably natural) to slow bleeding. It’s so horrible and so gross. I DREAD going to the bathroom because of the amount of blood. Please if anyone knows anything (Advil, naproxen doesn’t help).
I'm 90% sure I have sciatic endo, and have neuropathy in my foot. Most days are very bad in the mobility department, and I'm probably an obvious fall risk who's just been lucky so far. I've been using a rollator most of the year, but even that doesn't cut it anymore some days.
What type of chair (manual, powered, scooter) do you use? Has it been worth it?
