Pelvic Injections Or Pregnancy?

Pelvic Injections Or Pregnancy?

A little background: I am 25f. Was diagnosed about a year and a half ago when I had laparoscopic surgery. My doctor told me I had a "significant amount" (which he was not kidding). Anywhere it could be in my pelvis it was on it. My rectum, my bladder, my intestines. Oddly enough the only place it wasn't was my ovaries. I was pain free for about 6 months after surgery.

Slightly Private But Does Anyone Get Terrible Pain During And After Sex To The Point They Never Want It Again?

Slightly Private But Does Anyone Get Terrible Pain During And After Sex To The Point They Never Want It Again?

Regardless I'm going to push for a colonoscopy as I've read low ferritin levels can… read more

Does Any Feel Pressure Around Pelvic Area?

I am wondering if anyone ever feels pain in their vagina. Like a pressure of some sort. It seems to happen when it close to me getting my period. Sometimes coughing and laughing makes the pain worse.
