SRS Might have endometriosis

    I called and talked to my doctor before about a pain that I've been experiencing quite frequently (it's almost hard to walk at times type pain) and I have an appointment in the morning to discuss the possibility of me having endometriosis. It would definetly explain the extreme pain that I have been having.

    I'm really dissapointed right now. This definetly throws a wrench into our baby making plans (which weren't going very far due to the pain I've been in :wtc: ). 30-40% of women with endometriosis have problems getting pregnant too.

    I guess I just needed to make this sad rant right now.

    I have an ultrasound next Friday to check on whether or not I have Endo, but the doctor said it is probable. She also mentioned that it shouldn't be so painful in my uterine area (she made me cry giving me the exam it hurt so bad). The good news is that I don't have any cysts or anything. She also did both a urine and a blood pregnancy test. I am 9 days past ovulation right now. The urine was negative and I expect the blood to be also. She wasn't overly encouraging or discouraging about a future pregnancy so I'm not sure how I feel about that.

    Sorry to hear that. A friend of mine just had surgery to alleviate the pain. I heard there's a new pill you can take that'll help. Ask your doc.

    Oh damn. I am sorry to hear that. Maybe it will be "easily" treatable and you will still be able to have that baby you are wanting.
    Keep us posted if you can. {hugs}

    I'm really angry about this. Relieved to a certain extent that I know the cause of my pain, but incredibly angry knowing the issues that I face. I have an OB appointment tomorrow and an ultrasound on Friday. Hopefully I'll get some answers soon.:hs:

    Eh?
    This may come out of the blue, but do you wear tighter clothing? I read a study a while back that looked at instance rates of endometriosis over the world, and the instances were very low in places where loose, flowing clothing is the norm, such as India and the Middle East, and progressively higher in areas where tighter clothing was worn ie. Europe and North America. I'm pretty sure this would be more of a preventative measure than a problem-solving one, but you may find it helpful to wear looser clothing anyway. :dunno:

    Edit: not sure if that study was adjusted for age/diet/station in life

    Just so you know, even though endometriosis is a very painful condition and does interfere with getting pregnant it doesn't preclude pregnancy *at all* - both girls that I know who suffered terribly with the disorder succeeded in becoming pregnant and carrying to term. After giving birth their symptoms were diminished significantly, one never had problems with it again.

    It's not all bad news. I'll have my fingers crossed for you :)

    Well I just got back from my physical and preconception check and the doctor said he would be VERY surprised if I had endo, and that he didn't see any issues in me becoming pregnant. :bowdown:
