Estrace Cream
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone ever use estrace cream and it flares their endometriosis?? Also, has anyone had endo growing on their cervix after a hysterectomy? And if so, what symptoms did you have?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am on the Estradiol transdermal system twice weekly for menopause symptoms due to having a complete hysterectomy. I was informed the hysterectomy would correct the pelvic pain, back and abdominal pain I was having due to the endometriosis. I was also informed the endometriosis would not grow back by having the hysterectomy. Was I lied to?

Anyone Ever Had To Use Dilators? If So Do You Have Any Tips? For Some Reason The Past Month My Downstairs Has Turned Into A No Entrance!
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Were meant to be trying for a baby in a months time, it just won’t go in and when it does I tare down there. My PTSD has been bad lately something happened to me as a child for years that relates to this issue. I don’t know weather it is that or weather my endo has got bad again (I’ve had it removed from the walls down there before) I’ve brought a set of dilators and it’s bloody painful. Just wondered if anyone’s gone through this?

Hello, I've had this issue for a while. Sex and tampons are a no go now. I've been seeing a physio at a women's clinic who recommended a perifit. It is an investment at £120. Its a vaginal exerciser… read more

I hope you are able to get to the bottom of it soon! That’s no fun at all. You mentioned tight pelvic floor, that might be worth looking into along with talking to your doctor about all your symptoms… read more

NHS Waiting Lists?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

What are NHS waiting lists like?
Hopefully I can get a couple of different answers for this one as I know locations can vary

How long do you have to wait for surgery approximately from the date you were referred?

And if it were cancelled, how long more do you have to wait?

And specifically anyone using London hospitals, but even if it's not London, please do let me know still so I can try to get an idea
Thank you!

I Am 2 Days Post Lap. Any Top Tips For Healing?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

Embrace the pillow, literally! Find a pillow, blanket, bolster, puppy, etc. that you can hug close to your abdomen when the pain flares up. The compression and warmth help. Be kind, go slow, and write… read more

Has Anyone Still Had The Same Pain After The Laparoscopy They Did Before?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm not talking about recovery pain from the surgery. I mean has anyone still had the same awful pain they were having prior to surgery after? I'm 3 months out from my surgery and I'm getting the same stabbing pain I had before. I guess I was under the impression that if I had surgery it would talk care of the pain for a little while. And I guess 3 months is a "little while" but I was hoping it would be for a lot longer.

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

Thank you all for responding. I went in yesterday and they found 2 more endometriomas on my right ovary again. Now I'm not sure if they were miss when the surgeon was in there or if they have both… read more

Hi Everyone, I'm About To Ask A Very Personal Question And I Don't Expect Anyone To Answer.
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

If you aren't embarrassed by my question I'd appreciate knowing if anyone else has the same experience. I have issues with having sex, the majority of the time it makes me feel sick in my stomach, I luckily have a very understanding bf. Sometimes when I feel that internal sex will be to much we go for the external pleasure (clitoris). But even this causes pain sometimes. Does this happen to anyone else? My doctors are very coy with giving me answers to anything.

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

Laparoscopy is the answer if excision is used to remove Endo. Most who get a laparoscopy are getting ablation where the Endo is simply burned but not removed, causing more pain and scarring. Endo… read more
