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? I'm really struggling to get up on a morning and carry out my daily routine, I feel like if I don't at least sort out my fatigue some how I will lose my career any advice would be great. Thanks in advance XX
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 anyone feel uncomfortable… read more
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!
Do not take EPO and colagen if you have cyst. They contain a lot of oestrogen.
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 had a colon resection 2yrs ago do to endo attaching to my colon
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"
I just wanted to share for anyone who is childless not by choice this weekend, it's okay to take a break from social media and to distance yourself from others if needed this weekend. I've already seen a few posts popping up about posting photos of 'you' pregnant, your newborn, and what your child looks like today. And while it seems cute on the surface, it's a terrible painful reminder for many others. Endometriosis is a cruel, ironic disease that can often lead to difficulty getting pregnant… 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.
I can count on one hand the times that me and my boyfriend have had sex in the last year- sad I know
I just had excision surgery back in May and of course I'm terrified of getting back on the horse... seemed like an appropriate analogy. We have tried once since my surgery after waiting long enough and it still hurt but at the time I wasn't on any type of birth control so we had to use a condom and my fun parts have never agreed with most types. I'm thinking that was the main problem (more like… read more
I started taking visanne 7-8 weeks ago and had a noticeable reduction in pain however my first cycle while on the medication hasnt stopped and I'm going on 4 weeks. My gyno is suggesting I tough it out since it's working to reduce pain but I'm inclined to stop if the bleeding continues. Everything I've read so far about visanne indicates your period should become lighter and maybe even disappear so I'm wondering if anyone else had this side effect and was there a way to stop the bleeding?
