I am 38 and haven't had children yet. I am in my second cycle since being diagnosed with endo. Two years prior to the operation I have had pains, terrible thrush, a vaginal entrance scar from a previous operation paining, migraines and tummy and the constant need and urge to urinate - even just after emptying.
With this new information of the endo I am now monitoring what pains happen when etc. The migraine came at the same day of each month and pain from my scar - just before ovulation. Constant need to pee worsens near ovulation. Tummy pains a week before period. My cycle is only 24 days anyway. Feels like I have pain or a problem to ruin my day every single day.
The doctor said they best not to operate or treat me medically to enable me to have children. they said that's the best chance of making the endo lessen. I have stage 4 aggressive and an obliterated pouch of Douglas making surgery risky too.
