Have Any Of Yall Ever Taken Lexapro?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been on it for maybe 2 weeks now. I feel good other than im tired ALL the time. But i cant figure out if its because i work night shift or not. Also havent had a solid bowel movement, they been very unpleasant instead. Would this be because of the lexapro?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

I go back to the doctor on the 19th but I dont want to come off it if these s/e go away. Maybe the tiredness is from switching to night shift 😬. However the other is probably from the lexapro. I feel… read more

Visanne And Crippling Anxiety
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭


I’ve been on Visanne for almost 2 months. The 1st month was fine but then I started getting crippling anxiety. My life is on hold as a result. How long should I wait before i judge Visanne?

Background info: I have GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) and I’ve been doing talk therapy before I started Visanne to prepare me. The first month the side effects were manageable and I was fine. Starting my second month, it has exasperated my anxiety. My anxiety is so bad that therapy and all… read more

Has Anyone Ever Had A Random Extreme Flare Up? Did It Cause Aching Over Your Whole Body Too?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I woke up in the most excruciating pain in the middle of the night. Cramping like I’ve never felt before. My whole body also feels soo achy. I do have fibromyalgia but I’m wondering if anyone has experienced a random endo flare up that is just awful? I haven’t had one in probably years, since my lapro in 2019. Worried it came back and came back bad;(

@A MyEndometriosisTeam Member. I also have fibromyalgia which sometimes it’s hard to tell if the pain is fibromyalgia or endometriosis. I do get bad flares with my whole body in pain. I even wake up… read more

Just curious as to the pain level and experience with, doing lapro. Both the confirmation with the camera and the surgery

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

Depends on your end game, level of current pain, and if it comes back. I think it was worth it, but for me, without hormone control it comes back quick. Make sure you have a good doctor because that… read more

Depression/Anxiety On Visanne
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi Ladies,

Quick question, I've been on a few different contraceptive pills over the years and after my Lap this year my surgeon put me on Visanne.

I immediately began to get suicidal thoughts and went to my GP and went off it as soon as I noticed these thoughts starting to appear and I went back to feeling fine. Recently the pill I was on began giving me really awful headaches so my surgeon suggested trying visanne with a hormone patch for three weeks to slowly transition from a combined… read more

Should I Continue To Take Lupron If I Still Have Constant Pain Everyday?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I continued to have constant pain after having Laproscopy in January. The pain may not be AS bad as before the surgery, but now I have new pain that I didn't have before. My doctor suggested take Lupron Depot since I was still experiencing pain. I took the 3 month dose in August and I'm still having constant pain daily. I'm scheduled to take another 3 month dose in a couple of weeks. Advise, please, ladies; should I take another shot of Lupron even though I'm still in pain??

I had a different experience with pelvic floor PT but I think I just got lucky and got a really good gal who goes very slow. Bc I'm still doing it for the past 6 months and I love it! Helps my pain… read more

NO Feeling From Foreplay?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Due to a fuckup on their end with scheduling, I can't resume pelvic floor PT for weeks, so I can't even ask my dr this question.

My bf came over for my birthday and spent a couple nights. Both, we got "busy". But, I felt next to nothing. Usually, I am extremely sensitive and get turned on super easily, but it took him absolutely forever to orgasm the first night, and the second took almost as long because I wasn't feeling a single thing from foreplay. For months now my sensation has been… read more

Excruciating Pain Two Months After Lap?! Help!
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I feel like I’m constantly in the “squeeze” part of a Kegel, what do I do?! If I “release” it hurts so bad! 😭😭😭 it used to not be like this until after my lap/d&c/ablation on 8/30/19. I went back to my surgeon after spending the weekend in the hospital on 9/29/19 and he was completely dismissive. Originally suggested that it was my body “adjusting to not being on opioids,” I called him on that bullshit because it had been a month since surgery and I had been prescribed a total of 26 Percocet in… read more

Undiagnosed Endo?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Heyya, so Endo runs in our family, over the last 6 years I have constantly been in and out of hospital trying to diagnose it
I'm on the pill 24/7 to have no periods but I still get the pain, which sky rockets every three to six months. I've had two laperoscopies, doctors have said I don't have Endo, just a tilted uterus and a small blood clot and fluid in my fallopian tubes...but that doesn't explain the regular pain, the heavy pressure in my uterus, the bloating and all the other symptoms,… read more

@A MyEndometriosisTeam Member I'm so happy I could help. Your pain is real and you deserve to feel better. I hope you finally get a diagnosis. Have a great day too !

Endo On The Liver??
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone had experience with endo on the liver? After my laproscopy I was told I had a weird texture on my liver. .have since had functions tests and an ultrasound. I finally was able to get in with a liver specialist and he thinks it's possible I have endo on my liver... now I have an mri, and possible laproscopy to biopsy my lover. Which sucks because he doesn't understand why it wasnt just biopsied to begin with

I actually am having the reverse done. About 2 years ago I had a hemangioma removed from my liver which was the size of a baseball. During that time I was struggling with my periods but was more… read more
