NHS Vs PRIVATE
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

So I’m on the nhs waiting list for a hysterectomy but due to wait times etc opted to pay for a private consultation to discuss going private for the surgery
Thing is the private consultant wants to start from scratch including laparoscopic surgery just to have a look before then going back to do the hysto in a second op even though I’ve already done the lap surgery and he went through all my notes and post surgery write ups

How Does Everyone Feel About Birth Control? I Need Help Figuring Out What Kind Of Treatment I Should Attempt Next.
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I recently got started on the Depo shot about four weeks prior, and I am struggling. I just bled for about 9 days, which I know can be normal just adjusting to the BC. I am still in pain, crying every day, and feeling like I have no control over my mood. I was off BC for two years and that's what started my journey to finding out I had Endo and I just feel like I should get off BC and just deal with the pain. At least my mood will be semi-normal. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thoracic Endometriosis Syndrome
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hey everyone, I was diagnosed with stage 4 Endo this year, and for the first time last week, I went through a horrible bout of chest pain, trouble breathing, coughing and back pain, which overlapped with my period. Visited the ER and all tests, xrays and MRIs are fine, so doctors aren't sure what's wrong. I came across the Thoracic Endometriosis Syndrome article yesterday, making me wonder whether this could possibly be the issue. Has anyone here been diagnosed with it? If so what tests and… read more

Do You Get A Fever Monthly?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

So every month for two or three days I’ll feel like I have a fever. I just read an experience of someone with endo and one of her symptoms was monthly fevers! Next time I’ll use a thermometer to see if I actually have one. Anyone else experience this?
