Pain during sex while spotting

Sex isn't typically painful for me but I've noticed that when I'm spotting it's a problem. I've been spotting for 13 days now. Is it normal to have pain during spotting?

Treatment other than birth control?

I was just diagnosed a month ago and my gyno is still in the "wait and see" stage of treatment. She wants me to go on birth control but I've been on it in the past and suffered from depression and severe acne because of it. Are there other ways to manage pain (diet, exercise, acupuncture, etc.) that you would recommend?

Has anyone tried vaginal suppositories containing Valium and a muscle relaxers?

I was just prescribed vaginal suppositories that contain Valium and muscle relaxers for continued pain after my endometriosis excision surgery. I previously tried lyrica, but I did not like the way it was making me feel mentally and it didn’t seem to be helping anyway. Just curious if anyone has given these a shot and how it’s gone for you?

No, but I have taken oral muscle relaxers before. They seemed to give me the most relief.

Is Endometriosis related to tachycardia (Fast heart rate)

Does tachycardia (high heart rate) come with Endometriosis? I had a bad episode yesterday,my heart rate was 146 beats per minute, I went to ER, my bloods came back normal and they couldn't figure out what caused it. I felt very dizzy while in the shower,once I got out,it was just downhill. I was puzzled when the ER Dr said she can't 're what's wrong,she can see that my heart is racing,but has no explanation. I have a pacemaker,but my heart has been very… read more

Pain after cycle is done

I am new to this. Was just diagnosed but have been feeling the same symtpoms for years now. Now that I know I'm not crazy it's harder to deal with this.

Not only that but several trips to the hospital, ER, specialist and I feel it's messed with me mentally and emotionally. My question is I just got off my cycle less than a week ago. I am in ER… read more
