Good morning ladies,
I have something on my mind and would like to see who has felt or is feeling the same?!
First off i am 19yrs old, 20 in a few months, i have been going through excruciating pain, along with many terrible symptoms,every cycle for the past 6 months ( yeh im a newby, and really need a bit of advice or some one to listen and understand ).
Since sept '13 docs have stuffed me around over 7different docs say it is endo, but i am yet to see a gyno or have surgery. ( i have referrals to 2 different gynos)
So I would like to ask you lovely ladies a few question, to help me cope, understand, feel less alone? Because im feeling pretty down and confused.
1, How long did you go through this before action was taken and had the diagnosis?
2, What were your symptoms and what was your seriousness/ level? ( complete mind blank, cant think of the word, i have read a few times some ladies gyno has told them they are a level 3 for example- catergory? Dunno )
3, Has any one had confirmation of infertility and unable to have birth? How did you get through that/ have you?
4, People who have been able to conceive, was it natural? Any complications?
5, Does any body recommend anything to help with endo, while i wait for my appt as i truly dont think i can take much more?!
6, How did you react when you found out, how did you over come this feeling of despair and emptyness!
7, is this condition for life? Is it always this painful? With these symptoms? Every cycle? Does it ever get better or will it keep getting worse?
Also please feel free to add anything that helps your get thru this, being the pain or mentally!
Sorry ladies, I have a million things i want to share/ say/ ask but i dont want to seem over the top,
I am just a very worried, scared, confused & emotional person atm. I think i make myself worse when i sit here and ask my self, what if you do have it? what if i wont be able to start a family? What if what if what if!
No doctor has properly explained what my next step is, what i have in store for my future? Or what will happen?
I have googled my little heart out trying to get every piece of detail, but what i need, is real woman that has or have experienced this!
Thank you in advance, please give me the information i need to try put my mind at ease.
