I would say easily a couple of weeks though regular clothes especially pants were not comfortable for about three months. I'm not truly sure exactly when mine passed as I proceeded to start gaining… read more
Thank you Melanie!
Hey everyone, I try a lot of non-medication related ways to help with my pain but doesn’t always work. I take Panadol and nurofen usually but it doesn’t always do the trick. What does everyone take for bad flare ups? Xx
I would suggest cannibas, indica for body high
I dont know if its chronic fatigue, or a side effect of medication but im just always tired, and seemingly always out of energy. Anyone else have this?
Constantly! The fatigue is the other horrible side effect of this disease. I have started taking lionsmane supplements to try to help with the fatigue and if seems to help with the brain fog a bit… read more

I did a ultrasound today and it's the same size, despite medicating for 3 months, I'm scared, I'm supposed to see the ob-gyn tomorrow, and I don't know guys.
Is this where I get surgery?
I was so optimistic it'd have shrunk in size but 💔😭☹️
Thank you hun ❤️, this is helpful.
Really frustrated lately with the lack of options available for those of us that have bodies that don't respond to pain medication.

I can't exactly get a… read more
Hello, I am going to see an ob/gyn that specializes in abdominal pain and endometriosis. This is the first time I go to a consultation like this one and I'm wondering if anyone has any advice that could help me get the help. I've suffered extremely painful periods for about 10 years and about 1 full year of lower left abdominal pain that feels like ovulation but happens at all times of my cycle now. Thanks for the help everyone!
Thank you so much. I will write it all down. I did have a transvaginal exam but it only showed two small fibroids and a very small cyst outside my fallopian tube. Then they prescribed norethindrone… read more
Hi everyone, I have been prescribed VISANNE for shrinking my endo and intense abdominal pains that I go through every single day. I am 5 days in but the pains persist. Has anyone on here used this drug similarly and how soon did you experience relief in pain? I really dont know how much more of this I can take. I am currently on sick leave and I dread returning to work next week as I can't see myself being very productive with this level of pain. My stomach gurgles then the pains follow. Thanks… read more
