Hi, I am new to this site, I don't always know who to talk to. I have been told it is likely I have endo, but only just going through examinations etc. I haven't been diagnosed but I have had symptoms for 9 years. I went on the implant because my periods were so painful. So for a long time then my symptoms weren't as bad. I came off it last summer as my husband and I were talking about starting a family. Then it all hit me; horrid pain, bleeding, painful sex, bloating... i think it had all been relatively controlled until then. So I finally went to dr, she said possibly endo from the start. Had a Colposcopy, now been waiting weeks for my date for a scan. Waiting is so hard, I have been researching and the more I read the more I seem to tick every box. I am worried and fed up of the people I have told, with responses being 'you don't know yet', 'stop worrying', 'they can do miracles these days', 'it wouldn't even mean having children might be difficult'.... all I want is for someone to understand (hubby is great but you know what I mean) and perhaps be in the same stage as me? Waiting... Or people who have been at this point, even without an official diagnosis being pretty certain what is happening. I know my body and i know it isn't right. I guess I am just looking for someone to understand. Rose
