Hi everyone....... I was diagnosed with endometriosis early this year just a few months after having my 4th child .I was in and out of hospital for 13 weeks near the end of my pregnancy with the same pain I have now and them having to stop my contraction as I went into labour early . As I had a previos c. Section I tried to give birth naturaly but was not happeng for me as i had a 38 hour labour so they had to do another c.section since then my endometriosis has just progressed and becoming very painfull i suffered with heavy bleeding and prolonged periods for upto 3 weeks at a time and had a few cysts on each of my ovarys which did go in time so I chose to have the marina in and that did not work for me as I bleed for 3 months everyday and still very heavy some days i would just spot but that was on the odd occasions and I was still in a lot of pain.so the gyne put me on norethisterone 2 a day and that did not help so had to go on 3 a day after going back to the docs that still did not help after taking them for another 2 weeks so I was by this time not a happy women my hormones were all over the place I was very snappy at my family and loved ones doctors were not doing anything so I desided to take it out myself . The bleeding stopped a few days after taking it out iv had a small period since then the codine no longer works for me so doctor put me on tramadol. Which some days when the pain is strong they don't even work I'm fed up of not sleeping feeling sick and been in pain I don't enjoy intercourse with my boyfriend as it hurts to much ,my social life has left me staying in all the time my pain is mainly on my right side mainly near my groin and my lower back the pain just burns constanly, I am 29 years old and I miss been so active.endometriosis runs in my family my mum has it and my sister I'm worried I will pass it on to my 2 girls.does anyone know if you can ask for a hysterectomy as iv had my kids now and am glad I have as there are people out there who can't have children with endometriosis my sister is one of them . Many thanks
