So many of us deal with pain that would debilitate our lives, if we weren't able to sustain ourselves with some sort of medication to tackle the flair up. But what works the best?
Most of my doctors have put me on Tramadol first and Oxycodone when I explain how Tramadol doesn't do much for my pain. As well as nerve blockers and NSAIDS (Which I limit always to, when needed). HOWEVER, society has a different view on pain medication and I'm wondering if this has made… read more
Reading about everyone's experiences I see that many people have been diagnosed with bowel endometriosos. I was just wondering how this was diagnosed? I have been having GI symptoms ever since I was diagnosed with endometriosis and my doctor recommended seeing a surgeon for a colonoscopy.I'm a bit apprehensive because she mentioned things like ulcerative colitis. Any feedback about any of your experiences would be appreciated:)
I've been on it for just over two months. It has completely stopped my period. I'm getting my Endo under control in hopes to have a baby. I'm worried that without a period I maybe going backwards
A few days ago someone posted a letter that was too a husband describing what us women wanted them to know about our pain. I should have booked marked it. Does anyone know the letter/article I am referring too and if so could you please respond with it. I am feeling so neglectful of my my best friend lately. He is so supportive and understanding but I a would love for him to see that letter/article. Thanks ladies.
My doctor is wanting to take out my right ovary. (The only ovary I have left.) I had emergency surgery to remove my left one due to an 11 cm cyst 3 years ago. I continue to have large and very painful cysts on my right.

Thank you in advance as I know this particular topic can be "taboo"
Hi, not really a question more just information I would like to share for those thinking about having a hysterectomy- information I wish someone told me. I needed a hysterectomy as I have severe adenomyosis and my uterus was bonded to my bowel and causing all sorts of problems. My dr assured me sex and orgasms would be the same but it isn't. Sex no longer hurts which is great as it had been a few years since my husband and I had sex but I can no longer orgasm. Well I can but it is maybe… read more
Hi all - I'm going to be attending the World Congress on Endometriosis this week. If you could be in a room with some of the world's top medical practitioners and researchers in endometriosis, what would you want to ask them?
