I have suspected endometriosis. I have been suffering with painful periods for as long as I can remember. But in the past 2 years I have experienced deep pelvic pain after sexual intercourse, and sometimes bleeding as well. No pain during sex though, it starts the day after and lasts up to a week.
I've had full STD checks and an ultrasound (they first thought it might be fibroids) both were clear. Sometimes my periods are very light and more painful, and sometimes I 'flood' then it is less painful. After an internal examination, my doctor said she could feel a 'hardness' there.. I'm booked in for a lacroscopy at the start of December.
If I do have endometriosis and they can remove it - what is the success rate? I'm worried I will never be able to have a normal sex life again! It's putting me off - But I'd like to think I can have a normal loving relationship with a man again some day
I know every case is probably different, but I would like to hear off anyone else who's been through similar experiences?
Many thanks x
