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 taking Visanne for a year now and doctor has said I can stop it. How long did it take for your period to return after stopping it? And have you experienced any other symptoms? I've been off it for 2 weeks now. No period yet, but I've had breast sensitivity, increased appetite and increased libido. I would love to hear your experiences!
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
My doctor says its impossible to have endometriosis symptoms everyday. He says the pain should only be on my period. Guaranteed its worse on my period but I'm in pain and exhausted everyday :( does anyone else suffer everyday of the month and if so how are you managing things?

Thanks in… read more
I am having surgery to remove the scar tissue and while I am asleep, they want to put an IUD in as well. I am super nervous about the IUD and want to know if there are side effects, and if the IUD is a good route to go.
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.
Should I say no to this? I'm 33. I know it's an automatic throwing myself into menopause if I agree, but I'm concerned if I don't have it taken out, it could eventually turn into something more. And not to mention I'm in pain… read more
I have a vaporizer that I use on extremely bad days and a family member who is a chef has begun working with edibles. So far I've found vaporized CBD oil most effective without the red eyes and "stoned" feeling, but am new to it's medicinal uses and would love to hear others experiences with various medicinal marijuana products. Thank you in advance as I know this particular topic can be "taboo"
