Hi, I never thought that I would actually write anything on here, but reading the post and the support that other people have on here has given me the strength too. I've been battling with bad periods since I started at 11 years old. In the last 3/4 years the pain had got worse and started to affect my legs and in the last 2 years pain in my hips has been bad. I have been given different pills and in June I had a severe bleed and the doctors finally thought I may have Endo.. I haven't been able to have a proper internal examination as it is too painful. My surgery has been delayed it was meant to be next week. I have been put on Norethisterone since June. I feel so frustrated I'm still a virgin at 25 which pains me to admit. I feel so ashamed of that and my body. I'm scared to get into a relationship with anyone. I was wondering if anyone else has suffered with severe pain in the hips and also does anyone get intense shooting pains in the abdomen? I'm really struggling with this continuous waiting.
