    That’s a bit tactless… Talking about a condition which can wreck a womans sex life then have a video of a couple going at it. =/

    @SarahSnusk no, it doesn’t put me in a fake menopause. it does cause hot flashes, though. i’m in the middle of one right now. i have no idea of how long it will be before it gets into my system. one of my mom’s coworkers said it’d be a long time. i saw my doctor again friday, and he gave me some more advil and nausea medication.

    I just found out that I have endrometriosis! omggg its sooo painfull!! I have had stomach pain since i started my period when i was 13 and in the last yr it has gotten a lot worse and i had cysts on my ovaries as well! now i am on birth control..hopefully it helps

  5. SarahSnusk says:

    Yeah that’s a good idea. But the knowledge of endometriosis amongst doctors today is very poor.
    I’m sorry too hear that it got worse : ( that sucks! Was it one of those hormone shots which puts you in a “fake” menopause? How much longer would you have to take these shots until they know if it works?

  6. MissMaddy881 says:

    @SarahSnusk i’ll talk with my doctor about what you told me. right now, i’m taking one of the shots and i was fine for a week, but then i started hurting again. my primary doctor said with each shot i’ll build up a resistance so i’ll feel better with each one.

  7. SarahSnusk says:

    @MissMaddy881 No problem! I didn’t know this either until some weeks ago. The doctos sure doesn’t tell you much….
    Good luck Maddy! Whatever you choose to do it’s your body and you know best what it needs, not the doctors, remember that! 🙂 I had to learn that the hard way.

  8. MissMaddy881 says:

    @SarahSnusk hmm..interesting. thanks for tellling me this!

    And since these small cells behave as if they were the endometrium, they still will bleed every month even if there’s no uterus. But it’s your body and if you feel like an operation is the solution for you then maybe it is. I just wanted you to know that (since you do want children especially) it’s not a guarantee for getting rid of the endo. Try to avoid wheat products for about three months or so, I’ve tried it and my cramps aren’t nearly as bad or as long.

  10. SarahSnusk says:

    @MissMaddy881 Well endo doesn’t just grow on the uterus, right? Endometriosis implants have even been found all the way up in the brain. You see, these endometriosis implants are just tiny, tiny cells in the beginning and you can’t see these implants with the naked eye. Therefore, even if you remove the visible endometriosis, or the whole uterus, these small endometriosis cells are still left.

  11. MissMaddy881 says:

    @SarahSnusk so where can the endo grow back if there’s no uterus?

  12. SarahSnusk says:

    @MissMaddy881 A hysterectomy is not a 100% sure way to get rid of the endometriosis. There’s thousands of women that have done the surgery because they thought the severe pain would go away. But for many the pain and symptoms doesn’t go away at all, or they go away for some time, only to come back again and get worse over time. Read “Reclaim your Life – Your Guide to Aid Healing of Endometriosis” By Carolyn Levett. It’s written by a woman who had endometiriosis but now is symptom free.

  13. MissMaddy881 says:

    @brokenheartedspirit yeah, my doctor told me those things. i saw him monday and i’m taking one of the shots for it. it’s not lupron, but the other one. sometimes i still hurt, but it goes away and isn’t as bad. that shot’s awesome! ask your doctor about it.

  14. brokenheartedspirit says:

    @MissMaddy881 im not going for the hysterectomy bc i want kids too, just deal with the pain ive been told that excersizing can help endometriosis, and ive also heard that after having your first kid it can go away… idk though im not a doctor try asking yours 🙂

  15. MissMaddy881 says:

    @brokenheartedspirit oh ok. i don’t want a hysterectomy because i want kids, but judging from the comments i’ve read on here, it seems impossible to avoid that surgery. what about you?

  16. brokenheartedspirit says:

    @MissMaddy881 I switch the pain killers i use around from ibuprofin to advil to alieve. The headaches for me vary on my days, I try to keep myself hydrated and away from loud noises, i tend to be out of school for 2 days sometimes…relaxing usually helps me. For me though my headaches arent as frequent as my cramping that moves to my lower back area and down to my quads. My dad hasn’t taken me in yet to get me on the pill, we havent found a cheap place yet.

  17. MissMaddy881 says:

    @brokenheartedspirit you’re welcome and thank you! i like taking aleve because it puts me to sleep so i don’t feel pain. i had severe headaches until last may and the pain reminds me of them. it moves around and my headaches would, too. i’m just on the pill, but i suck at taking it.

  18. brokenheartedspirit says:

    @MissMaddy881 I’m not really doing anything I just lay in bed and try to find a comfortable possition, I also take pain killers every 1-2 hrs, thanks for thinking about me 🙂 I’ll think about you too 😀

  19. MissMaddy881 says:

    i have a question: does endometriosis seem to get better if you exercise? i’m going to ask my GYN this, but i want to know what any of you think.

  20. MissMaddy881 says:

    @brokenheartedspirit you’ve had it since you were eight? dang! that sucks. what are you doing for it now? i found out i had it toward the end of last year and i’m 21. i’ll be thinking about you 🙂

  21. MissMaddy881 says:

    @sparksfly2u i read that on some website.

  22. MissMaddy881 says:

    @BlackMarker i’m learning, too. i’m 21 and i have it.

  23. MissMaddy881 says:

    @Jenna241 you’ve had it since you were 12? wow. i’m 21 and i have it. i found out towards the end of the year and i’m wondering if it’s rare for endometriosis to occur in women my age. i had severe headaches last year and they caused me to drop out of college. i’m back in school now, though. what did you have to end up doing?

  24. Jenna241 says:

    @sweetpickles87 In my own experience, birth control or any medication a doctor will prescribe does not help. at all. It only adds on more side effects. I have found through experimenting that a VERY balanced vegetarian or (I highly suggest) vegan diet helps a great deal. Since you have lost your health insurance, and your still having wonky cycles, I would recommend asking your doctor about changing your diet. (PLEASE talk to a dr. first!) Eliminating anything acidic will help also!!!
