Details included (sorry) .. urgent! I had my period a week ago & in its last 2 days I felt some swelling around my vaginal opening and the labia around it, with some irritation and pain whenever I wanna shower or anything.. the period is over but the pain and swelling are still there so I decided to check what it looks like down there and I was terrified; my vaginal opening is all white, like thick white thing that seemed like discharge but isn't discharge, like infection or something, and… read more
It sounded like thrush, a candida infection. Better book to see a gp for a proper checkup
I have both endo and pcos. On birth control (so it's not my period). OBGYN nurse said I shouldn't have cysts since I'm on BC. The pain is squeezing, twisting, and sharp/stabbing (all very intense).
So all the research on paper states 2-3 months but I feel like that RWE (Real World Evidence) could change that metri. Can anyone tell me their personal experience?

I have had endo diagnosed via lap in 2016. I am on continuous bc meaning my pain has been manageable however I do have what I call flare ups from time to time. Ussually affects my bowels....and I ussually have a bout or 2 of diarrhea and cramping ussually subsides with ice and menefamic acid. I was recently told that flares shouldn't be happening if I am on bc. Does anyone still experience flares on continuous birth control?
My doctor said I should expect light bleeding but no pain. But, I'm having that feeling that I'm about to start cramping bad. I don't know if I'm just paranoid or its actually gonna happen. Can anyone tell me about their first experience taking this pill? Thanks.
How long have you been taking it now?
