Last week I had my 2nd internal scan. To say they were painful during, and especially afterwards was an understatement. My husband has never seen me in such a state through pain. Yesterday, I had endo confirmed and already it is making lots of sense to me.
Since the age of 11 i have been having periods. From the age of 15 they started to affect my school life. My parents would look at me, especially my mother, and say everyone experiences it, get over it. They have gotten progressively worse. Hot & cold sweats, excruciating pain that i am sick, migraines, weight gain, hormonal imbalance, immune system deteriorating. I was led to believe this was all normal.
The problem is i have been actively trying to conceive for 4 years, and now i don't know what they are going to do to help me, if they can at all. I really wish i had been told when i was younger that painful, heavy, and long periods are not normal. Let alone the other symptoms.
I'm in limbo until my next follow up appointment and already feel so overwhelmed with everything its hard to concentrate on every day life.
