Hi there, I'm a new member and would like to share my experience. I'm 28 and have always had uncomfortable periods since I was 10. I was diagnosed 2 months ago with endo and cysts, after having terribly painful periods. They were that bad I'd shove the duvet in my mouth and scream until the pain had gone. I lost days at work and it was emotionally unbearable for my husband who found it very disturbing. I had my laparoscopy on the 20th September 2012 and was told I had stage 4 endo. They also had to take away my left fallopian tube as it was blocked and very enlarged. I'm also being very careful as my bowel and bladder were stuck to my uterus causing bruising to both. It's day 2 and have not taken any painkillers only paracetamol for the pain in my shoulder. I just hope that my next period is pain free and I can conceive naturally.
