I am scheduled for surgery to find out if i have endometriosis. I wonder if it is what i have or something else. I feel just nausea right now and about a week and half away from getting my cycle. Occasional pain in lower stomach that is like sharp, and will get sharp pain through pelvic area also. All around just feel crappy. Anyone have that and its endo?

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? 😕

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

My understanding is that excision surgeons are better at removing them. Apparently, most surgeons who do ablation just drain the cyst but leave the wall there, so it fills up more quickly. That's not… read more

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?

Is It Okay To Take Visanne While You Have The Mirena IUD?

Is It Okay To Take Visanne While You Have The Mirena IUD?

Hi Ladies. PLEASE HELP! I recently moved to South Korea (from America) and went to a specialist for the first time today. He recommended I start taking Visanne. I really didn't want to take any new meds, as I already have tried Lupron, Femara (usually used for breast cancer), just norethindrone, and some other bc pills.I already had 2 excision surgeries. I also currently have the Mirena IUD. I don't want to try a new treatment but he kept telling me how great and wonderful Visanne is. I am so… read more

I have endometriosis, as a result I have an endometrioma on my right ovary. It’s hurt on and off for about a year now. But now it hurts everyday. It feels so tight around the whole area, my stomach has a swollen bulge in it which only started recently when the pain became more frequent. I currently can’t afford surgery to remove the cyst of the endometriosis tissue. My main concern is my fertility do you think I am ruining my chances of having a baby. I am so afraid but I have no money to help… read more
