    Question Endometriosis?

    I'm wondering if there might be a forum on endo in the Momberries/TTC section, but as a 19-year-old with no children plans in the near future, I feel I don't really fit in there!
    Does anyone else have/might have endometriosis? There aren't really any good forums around, and you Berries are all so lovely and supportive that I thought it might be worth a try to set up a bit of a forum here.
    A little about me:
    My first period was at age 16, nearly 17 (quite late). From my very first period, I had pain. I started getting my period every two weeks (SO. ANNOYING.) and near-constant pain. At 17 I was put on the pill, more to control my periods/pain than for contraception. I took them continuously, so having a period every 3 months. They were still revoltingly painful, and I was still having pain in-between. Eventually I had a laparoscopy and a Mirena inserted while I was under GA (general anaesthetic) as I am a virgin with no children and it's really recommended for mothers! The laparoscopy found just a little bit of endometriosis, that's it. While relieved, it didn't really answer much: until I was told that endo is very random; and people can have heaps of endo but only minimal pain, or heaps of pain and only minimal endo. The Mirena didn't work out: I was getting cramps so bad I was bed-ridden. It was removed (OMG SO PAINFUL - I didn't get any anaesthetic at all ) and I got the Implanon (arm implant) inserted. With that, I bled straight for three weeks, so I was put back on the Pill as well as the Implanon. And here I am now!
    One of the worst things about endo at the moment is that I'm at the end of semester exam block. Constant crippling pain really can be very distracting....

    Hi jem . I don't think I have endometriosis but I also got my period quite late (I was almost 16 so it was in June-August of this year somewhere in there.) and had some slight complications with it. I get very irregular schedules (haven't had another since July).

    I don't have endometriosis, but I felt bad that you didn't get any replies so I just had to respond. I'm always here to talk if you need to .

    I don't have any medical advice or anything, but just wanted to say I totally feel for you. I've always had irregular periods too, maybe 4 or 5 times a year, and I have no idea when they're going to come so it always stains my clothes. Maybe you could take painkillers if it really hurts- though you might want to check with a doctor if that's okay. *hugs*

    I have endometiosis. I have worried a lot about if I would be able to have children. I am 20 and not thinking of having babies any time soon, but it still worries me. I want to be a mom one day, so I know how you feel. It is painful. I got my period when I was 11 and it was miserable. In 2011, I finally got put on birth control because they suspected that I had it. In August of this year, I was diagnosed with it. Good luck to you!
