I've been doing a bit of research online and found that I have adjectives the symptoms (excluding fertility problems because I'm only 18 and I'm not trying to get pregnant!). I also enjoy fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, so I know that some of my symptoms over lap.
Question more or less Endometriosis...?
My auntie also has it and I know within is some genetic disposition.
How is it tested for? What should I say to my doctor when I talk to her roughly it?
Answers: They will do a Laproscopy on you (cut you at the navel -small incision and take a look with a small camera)
I found out i have endo when i was 19 years old. They did surgery on me to see what be wrong then i had another surgery after that be they cut me as far as a c-section and burnt it all out (endometriosis implants) but i know it have came back because i hurt impossible to tell apart way as i did then. I am immediately 28 years old. I have a 7 year ancient son.
You know when the doctor found out i had that at the age of 19 he told me that pregnancy would cure it (like telling me to seize pregnant but i didn't until i wanted too which was when i be 21)
Pregnancy does not cure it.
Well to be honest my doctors think I might have it also. As you know I own fibro also. But my doctor told me even if I was diagnosed that it wouldn't change much of anything. I'd own the outpatient surgery done and they would tell me if I had it or not. There isn't much that can be done for it. Not medication or anything. You might hurt worse than most girls do during your period and some say you cannot achieve pregnant. But I know plenty of people who have endo. and hold three or four kids. So don't worry too much about it. Nothing can be done and for the most cog you can still have children. The only 100% mode to diagnose enodmetriosis is through a laparoscopy. It's a minimally invasive procedure, and you'll be up and moving around in no time if you have one. You might want to mention the line member having it to your doctor and see where on earth the conversation goes from there. My mom have endo as well as my aunt(her sister).
P.S. I am 23, and also have fibro!
