I am only 20 years of age and have just been diagnosed with stage 3 endo on my ovaries, afer putting up with it for 3 years the pain is only just bareable now I have excruciating periods which are really heavy and painful despite being on the pill ! Its took months of being painfully poked and prodded to get this diagnosis and its ruining my life !
Im in a relationship and cant have sex with my other half because the pain during sex is so unbareable which causes a lot of tension, I work long hours as a chef and always seem to be constantly exhausted which im told is a symptom of having endo?
All i ever do when im not working is sleeping im not getting to go out or live my life like other people my age its driving me crazy!
They are starting me on a hormonal treatment of temporary menopause as ive been advised this is the best thing to start off with and see how it goes but ive been warned of the side affects and have no idea how im going to cope with going through a 6 month menopause whilst working long hours in a kitchen with 5 men!
None of my friends or family seem to understand what a big deal this actually is and even though theyre trying to be supportive they really dont have a clue and it'd be nice to hear from someone who understands
