I’m new to this and fear I’m at the beginning of my Endo journey!
I’m 38 and have always had painful and heavy periods.
Around 14 months ago, I was flooding and in a lot of pain and a smear test showed that I had a cervical polyp. I had this removed and things went okay for a while.
I was diagnosed with C Diff in July and since August, have horrendous pain and flatuence from the first day of my period for around 10 days.
The pain isn’t period cramps - it’s a sharp pain in my left side and reaches to the top of my leg. I’m finding it quite debilitating
We’ve been TTC for 14 months with no joy so my GP is now referring me to gynae and told me he suspects Endo (I’ve had 2 x scans on ovaries and all clear)
I’m petrified; firstly that I’m going to be infertile and secondly, all of the medical procedures that I’ll face
Just wondering what others’ experiences are, both with regards to fertility and the medical procedures to determine what’s wrong. I’d also be interested to know whether anybody else has developed Endo after C Diff
Thanks for listening!
