Has anyone ever done a transvaginal ultrasound, specifically for endo?

Has anyone ever done a transvaginal ultrasound, specifically for endo?

ok so this might go into TMI but I just wanted to ask if anyone here has ever done a specific ultrasound for Endo which is a transvaginal one? I have an appointment to do one on Tuesday and its my first one ever.
I have to have a laxative and an enema before the appointment and I've never done anything like that before, I'm quite nervous about the whole entire thing. So if anyone here has ever done ANY of this before, I would like to know if… read more

Spotting on continuous bcp

Spotting on continuous bcp

My doctor recently told me to take my bcp continuously. It helps with pain and bloating, but I've had constant spotting ever since. Strange thing is that I never spotted taking the pill the traditional way, with the 7-day placebo break. Does anyone else experience this?

Has anyone ever experienced endo symptoms after a csection delivery. I’ve never heard of endo but here recently I’ve had endo symptoms

Has anyone ever experienced endo symptoms after a csection delivery. I’ve never heard of endo but here recently I’ve had endo symptoms

In the last year I’ve had severe pelvic pain that is worse during my period and back aches and leg pain is a dull pain through out the month. I feel like I’m nauseous daily. My doctor doesn’t want to do a lap because he wants to wait for me to get pregnant so he doesn’t have to cut me open twice. Anyone experience endo post csection delivery? Never had issues before

Laparoscopy time estimate?

Laparoscopy time estimate?

Going in for my first ever laparoscopy tomorrow. Looking for endo. Wondering if anyone has a time estimate of how long it will take? Both if they find something and if they don’t?
And I have never been under heavy anesthesia, any good/bad experiences?
So scared, nervous and also happy to finally get everything checked

Can ever expect to be 'pain free' and what the best treatments are that have worked for other people?

Can ever expect to be 'pain free' and what the best treatments are that have worked for other people?

Recently diagnosed with PCOS and Endometriosis, was wondering if I can ever expect to be 'pain free' and what the best treatments are that have worked for other people? I'm told that I'll probably never be able to have kids, if so is it worth getting a hysterectomy? The pain is seriously unbearable sometimes I'd do anything to stop it and I don't want kids anyway. Any advice would be very much appreciated!!
