I am so depressed right now. I am not even thinking clearly and not sure where to start. This year has been hell with infertility. Flare ups one month so bad I went to the ER one month and urgent care the next. Symptoms lead me to believe that I have endo on my bowels. Which would make sense since on my 3rd lap with bilateral cystectomy they removed fallopain tubes that had adhered to my bowels. Specialist I saw said since we were in the middle of infertility… read more
I am wondering how long it took for people to go back to work after a cystectomy? I have a job at a hospital (desk job). Also, I am wondering if the scars fade after awhile? Are there large amounts of pain for an extended period of time after the surgery? I just learned I have surgery next week and although I was hoping and praying it would be soon I am at work and absolutely melting down with worry.
Are complications usual with this type of thing? How long am I going to… read more
I have period pain that gets worse, and I get horrible cramps every single day in my lower stomach/uterus and I get faint from them. Could I have endometriosis? What are other symptoms of endometriosis?
how hard was it to get a hysterectomy? What was the outcome?
I had my first HSG test on 23rd June. The pain during the exam was horrendous, I was (not very successfully fighting back tears). I would opt for another lap before I had that done again. As soon as he removed everything I felt instant relief. I went to work after, because I felt fine (a mistake, I now see). About 2 hours later the pain suddenly turned very severe. I couldn’t walk, or move and certainly couldn’t drive… read more
I have endo symptoms namely lower back pain and pelvic pain. Is it a good idea to buy a cheap water bottle or not for nighttime usage? I have looked at Amazon already but wanted your opinions too. Recommendations and tips wanted in addition thanks in advance. I have mild endo, stage 1/2 only. Also suggestions for grown up storybooks to read at night to distract myself also welcome.

My laparotomy was December 2nd and this past month I've been getting little episodes of little sharp jabs. They'll stop for hours and randomly return.
Help! I have been taking visanne for 5 months and this month I am heading into my 4th week of spotting and bleeding. In the last 5 months, my periods have lasted 2 weeks with about 30 days in between. I still get some pain but not like before however, this long bleeding is making me consider stopping the visanne. I had a mirena for 2 years and bled every 2 weeks for 2 weeks. A short (but very painful) period is more appealing than this incessant bleeding. Anyone else have this? Does it… read more
