Dreading the arrival of af

Thank you all so much for being there for me over the last few days.

I retested this morning as instructed by my clinic. No miracle 😢 So I've now stopped all my medication and have to wait for af to arrive. I'm absolutely petrified as I know my endometriosis pain will be bad. I'm dreading it. After my miscarriage in march I ended up in hospital for a week as the pain was unbearable and I was very poorly.

Anyone have any experience.

Hi hellsbells36. So sorry to hear this, but hopefully you will have a pretty normal AF. Might be a bit heavier, but remember this is not a miscarriage, so rest when you can and have some analgesia ready just in case. Thinking of you. Diane

Thanks Diane. I know this is not a miscarriage but I also know what my periods are like without having been on lots of hormonal drugs. I always have lots of painkillers to use every month the witch arrives.

So sorry you had to wait to test again today.

Just wanted to send you hugs and healing thoughts on the build up to af ( I’m waiting for her to rear her ugly head too)

Take care of yourself honey xx

So sorry! Can't imagine what you are waiting for. My last BFN lead me to the most excruciating period & I don't have endo. Thinking of you!!xx

I have had two miscarriages. The first was dreadful and I had to be off work for a fortnight (I’ve never had this long off in my life before), the second one I didn’t need any time off work at all because it didn’t hurt much more than a period. I’m telling you this cos I wanted you to know that it might not be as bad as you expect. I hope you are all stocked up on painkillers.

Re your endo, I take it you’ve had a laparoscopy etc? Have you got good medical advice for your endo?
