Depo Provera And Periods

Depo Provera And Periods

Hi everyone,

So I just got off my Depo Provera about 2 weeks ago and I noticed I’m started to actually bleed again (spotting.) Is this normal? Anyone who has been on Depo, how long did it take for you to start a period again?
I’m a little excited (not for the pain!) just because I’m wondering if my body is just acting fast and I could essentially be ovulating? TTC :)

Bloating

Bloating

Does anyone stay bloated all the time? I was dismissed for years as IBS and had three children so I wasn't "checking all the boxes of endo." I stay bloated all the time now and i cant even wear my regular clothes. I look like i am pregnant and my 4 year old even asked me if we were having a baby :/

Nausea

Nausea

I find that Nausea is a huge symptom of my endo. My OB disregards this when I bring it up and says that is an upper GI issue, not related to your endo but when I read all of these same symptoms here I feel vindicated! I know it's my endo, why do Dr's seem to refuse this as a symptom when it is obviously very common?

I have decided that I am no longer going to see a regular OB for my endometriosis anymore. I don't know if you have any specialists near you, but it's… read more

Endometriosis In "Pouch Of Douglas"

Endometriosis In "Pouch Of Douglas"

Hi all,

I had my third laparoscopy with endometriosis resection two days ago. The endometriosis had come back under my right ovary and in the Pouch of Douglas. That is new for me and i'm not really sure what it entails. I'm just wondering if anyone else had an experience with endo her and what effects it had on them? I've my post-op with my doc/surgeon next week and wondering if there's any specific questions I should ask? Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.

I had endo there. It's a common place for it. It's between your vagina and rectum. It often causes a lot of scarring, which glues those two areas… read more

Having An Ovary Removed At 21

Having An Ovary Removed At 21

I've just turned 21 and in the last 2 years have had two laparoscopies, both of which found and excised extensive endometriosis and inserted Mirenas. The pain has always been worse on my right side and after more intense pain than usual, my last ultrasound showed 38 follicles on my ovaries and my right currently twice the size of my left. This has all happened only within the last 7 months and I'm ready to go in for another laparoscopy as soon as the doctor is willing. I'm seriously… read more

Would Meds Alter Test Results?

Would Meds Alter Test Results?

Hi, I'm new to this (see my story) and wanted to know - I've been taking Buscopan and Peppermint Oil Capsules to see if that would help for bloating and cramps. Then my GP sent me for blood tests and a poo sample to rule out if there was something else causing the bloating and cramps. Does anyone know if the meds would have masked any inflammation levels etc? I already had the tests and now thinking maybe the meds would have disguised levels or something?

Has Anyone Here Endometriosis And A Coagulation Disorder?

I have stage III endo and was diagnosed with hetercygote prothrombin mutation three years ago. I’m looking for others who have the same problems. Maybe someone has and was still able to become a mom?
