Hi I am 26 years old and was diagnosed with endo back in November last year after having scans and a laproscopy. I was put on the pill when I was 16 as the pain used to be so bad and my periods used to be really heavy. After having been on the pill for 6 years I had to come off. Then I had the contraceptive injection. I was on it for a year and just did not get on with it. Since then my periods are much lighter, but the pain is still intense. I get pain in the tops of my hips, my ovary area and lower back even when not on my period. Because of my family history (my mum had it then had a hysterectomy, luckily after having had her children, and my aunt unfortunately could never have children she had to have a hysterectomy when she was quite young) when I had started to get pain again (after having come off any contraceptives) I was diagnosed pretty fast. When I had the Laproscopy they didn't remove anything, as the patches I have are small in size but there are loads of them. My uterus has also fused to part of my bowel. The thing I am terrified of is not being able to have children. Sorry for the long rambling message.
