Hey, Does Anyone Have Any Tips To Prepare For My TVUS? I Am Nervous And Its My First Time

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been dealing with extreme period pain since I got my first period at 11. I am turning 21 next week and have been on over 5 birth controls and now have had my iud for two years but things are still bothering me and getting worse like my constipation and random pain. I am happy to get an internal ultrasound when I was younger nothing showed up on an external one but what if something scary shows up. Nobody can understand this struggle besides you so I decided to just ask and get some… read more

How Do I Deal With My Parents Who Make Comments Like "your Fucked Up In The Head From Hormones"/ It Must Be The Hormones, Ur Always Up/down

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I just feel like they don't validate how I feel, and blame my hormones, it's hurtful and not considerate to me, it made me blow up and then they make those comments instead of focusing on the real issue. They think I always make things up, and can never believe me, which is why I go to therapy because I have been such a people pleaser from my childhood, I always keep going back and still put my parents before me even though they make me feel very upset and hurt me often with those comments.

Has Anyone Else Had A Hard Time Being Diagnosed?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have almost every symptom of endometriosis. Painful cramps (on and off my period) since before I even started my period at age 11. When I was younger I went to a couple different doctors and they tried to downplay my pain and told me it’s normal and I need to get used to it. I only had one doctor that did diagnose me with PCOS based on hormone levels but never did any imaging. As an adult I have gone to two different Gynos and one told me I “probably” have it and did a vaginal ultrasound. He… read more

I Hope This Isn't Too Personal But I Was Wondering How Old You Ladies Were When You Got Diagnosed ?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm 23 and have had almost every test in the book to try and figure out why I'm always so exhausted, have bladder/pelvic/bladder/intestinal pain. I've been told it's an overactive bladder and food in tolerances because all of my tests come back normal . I'm so discouraged that im afraid to go for diagnostics because I don't want to feel like I went for nothing. I'm supposed to go Monday for a second opinion but I'm so nervou . Any similar experiences?

Unless you have Endometrioma's (or known as Chocolate cysts) they cant pick up Endometriosis unless you have a Laporoscopy. Not all Endo sufferers have Endometrioma's.... So find a doctor willing to… read more

Weight Gain And Endometriosis

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone experienced weight gain as a symptom of endo?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

I’m off all hormonal birth control and I’ve gained 30lb the last two years. I want to say the main contributors are being less active & also a hormone imbalance? Ugh

Advice Please?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hiya,

Could you please give me your honest advice/thoughts? Currently at the end of my tether and don't know who else to turn to.

Since I was 14 (now almost 26) I have seen various different doctors and a gynaecologist being told all sorts of different things but all of them have said they suspect I have endometriosis. With my current doctor she is the best one I have seen to date and is really clued up on the disease and says she is 100% sure I have it and all my symptoms match, there's… read more

Symptoms Or Signs Of Endometriosis

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been having problems with my period being irregular for years. The left side of my abdomen swells so much for weeks before my period that I look pregnant. I bleed heavily for days and my cramps are so horrible that I can't move or I become nauseous. My doctor thought it was my thyroid, testing came back normal. When the swelling began causing pain my doctor ordered a M.R.I. which came back normal also. Any ideas?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

See a specialist, My MRI was normal and I ended up doing laparoscopy and confirming endometriosis
