Vaginal cuff healing

Has anyone ever had a hysterectomy and/or their cervix removed due to endometriosis?? I am 3 weeks post op. At 2 weeks, i started having light bleeding and oozing of alot of yellow fluid. It would gush at times. Doc didn't seem time so concerned. The fluid thing lasted about a week and now I'm having alot of bladder pressure and twinges. All my organs are gone down there so is my bladder now sitting on top my vaginal cuff? Anyone have issues with this?

Does anyone experience lightheadedness/dizziness along with a heavy feeling before getting your period?

Before the real endo pain even started (about a year ago), I would feel this heaviness in my abdomen that was accompanied by extreme lightheadedness/dizziness and some anxiety a few days before and the first day of my period. It would get so bad that I had to leave work and just go lie down. It is distinct from the more severe abdominal pain I had for months leading up to my recent laparoscopy, but I’m… read more

Now the chances of me actually being pregnant is slim this past weekend was when I ovulated however we used the pull out method, which I know from my first son doesnt mean Im the clear. My projected period should be around the first week of Oct its never like clock work but I have my laparoscopy scheduled for Oct 17th should I be concerned? will it show on an at home test before my surgery?

Brown rubbery bleeding/discharge??

I’ve been having issues with clotting for months, but now it’s just extra weird... I’m not experiencing heavy bleeding at the moment, kind of average, but I keep getting this weird dark brown rubbery stuff... literally looks/feels like gummy worms. It’s really gross, does anyone else get this??

Burning near ribs

Hi all, I hope you’re well. I have been dealing with a lot health wise recently so I haven’t posted much. I was wondering whether anyone has had rib pain, almost sore to the touch, like a burning underneath the skin. It seems to come and go. I’ve noticed it since my laparoscopy in May. Just curious if others may know whether it could be endo related. Thank you!

Bladder Issues???

Hey! I've been on Lupron Depot now for just over a month. About 2 weeks ago I started noticing that my underwear were wet and smelled of ammonia. I thought at first it was vaginal discharge, but as I've come to realize it's urine.... I've never had real issues concerning a leaking bladder, and I'm not sure if Lupron can cause that... Please help!!! Is this something I bring up to my doctor???

Mirena helpful for mood swings?

Post-baby, I’m finding my period pain to be blessedly minimal - however, my premenstrual and day 1 mood swings are out of control. Wildly unhappy in the lead up to and on day one of my cycle - crying and feeling utterly despressed. I’m wondering if the Mirena might help to regulate my hormones and thus my moodswings. Any experience with this sisters?

Popping sensation

I had a surgery for my endo back in 2015 and got a lot of scar tissue and such scrapped off and it has steadly been getting worse the last three years. Recently I have been having this weird pop feeling where my lady bits are and it kind of feels like pop corn for lack of a better term. I was just wondering if anyone knew what that was about?
