URGENT PLEASE
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

Possible Cyst Rupture Yesterday, With Spotting. Pain Has Gotten Worse Today And The Spotting Has Increased. What Should I Do?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

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).

How Long Does It "really" Take For Your Body To Go Back To Normal After IUD Mirena Removal?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

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 had my IUD Mirena removed after being on it for 1 year, as they wanted to operate on a benign mioma on one of my ovaries, only to then cancel as it seems to have shrunk by 75%. That happened back in October, its now February and I still feel hormonally unstable, I also get flares up but every month its different, either 1 week… read more

Can You Still Have Endo Flare Ups, Even While On Continuous BC?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

I have been on meds for endo (so like period blocking) for over a year and I get flare ups all the time. Depending on what dose of meds I am on and what they are, it is so possible. Nothing is a… read more

Hi, I Just Started My Endo Treatment With Visanne, Its Almost Two Weeks But I Started Spotting A Bit. Is This Normal?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.
