Hello sorry I am new to the group. On such a low today and after coming across this group I thought it would be nice to vent somewhere to people who understand.
I was diagnosed with endometriosis last year after having Ibs like symptoms - it got to the point my bowel didn't hold anything and without no warning I would just go! For any age, especially a 21 year old who could be in a shopping centre , on holiday , in the car etc this was very humiliating! anyway back on topic it turned out my bowel and ovary were some how attached due to adeshians and endo therefore having the op helped this problem which was the worst of my symptoms. Thank god I now have a fully functioning bowel. However I am still having many issues which are getting me so down and I just wondered if anyone else still had the same even after the op?!
Sex for example - still unbearable and not wanted. I feel like I just can't enjoy it as I get so nervous it will hurt and I'll end up sat crying on the toilet.
Period- even though taking the pill back to back for three months as advised by my doctor I still have breakthrough bleeding! I will randomly come on, this could last anything from a day to a couple of weeks , then I will have my usual period every three months when taking the break. Why is this ? Also does anyone get any random pain which shoots straight up the vagina? Or stabs in the side? It feels different to period pain it's like the weirdest thing you feel someone has a knife up you?
I feel so low and my emotions are up and down all the time. I feel I've tried every single thing to get back to normal and was so hopeful of be normal after the op but I feel anything but, it seems I complain about one thing or another everyday and I don't no if it's now just all in my head and that just makes me feel worse and confused!
So sorry reading it back didn't realise I had gone on so much. Just feel so lost and alone with it even though I have a supportive family and boyfriend.
Thank you for this group. Even just reading previous posts is a massive uplift xx
