Just Wanting Some Advice Really.. Could I Be Pregnant?

Just Wanting Some Advice Really.. Could I Be Pregnant?

Hi ladies, so I had my endometrial ablations in May 2016 and I am now 4 days late on my period, I'm not on any BC and haven't been for a while... I've had 2 periods since my operation and my periods fortunately have always been quite regular, I have done 2 tests, yet both say negative.. Is this possible I could be pregnant or could I just be getting my hopes up or it all be in my head? 😕

What Do I Do?

What Do I Do?

Would the doctor make you get a hysterectomy if you have bleeding for a whole month straight with no stopping? I have been having bleeding that has been non stop and some pain and it sucks. I feel depressed and i feel insecure and frustrated. What do i do?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

Difference Between Ablation And Excision

Difference Between Ablation And Excision

Good Morning everyone,
I have seen some posts about someone saying that the doctor must have done an ablation not excision.
What is ablation?
I know mine was excision.

Endometrioma Cyst Or Chocolate Cyst

Endometrioma Cyst Or Chocolate Cyst

Diagnosed with endo about six years ago, have always had heavy very painful periods but over the last few months it’s gotten much worse, can’t move my first few days, extreme bleeding (a super tampon +) every half hour to hour or so and a lot of pain going down my lower back into legs. Got an ultra sound and have a 4 cm cyst which doc says looks to be an complex endometrioma *chocolate cyst* with extensive internal echos on ultra sound which I’ve read means when you get these it means your endo… read more

Painful Day

Painful Day

I know I have not been on in awhile. I am having a horrible day. The pain started yesterday and is so bad today I had to stay home from work. I have been in bed all day took my prescription pain meds and nothing is helping. I have no insurance to go back to the dr right now. Are there any options out there for me just until I can get insurance when open enrollment begins. I am tired of hurting and it affecting my life

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

Yes ma’am, when it gets this bad nothing helps. I also started my cycle yesterday which makes my pains so much worse.
