I learned I had endmetriosis 4-12-2010 after about 6 months of excruciating pain. At the tiem I was on birth control my husband and I weren't trying to have children yet because we thought I was healthy and all was well and good. In about November of 09 I got horrible cramps and pain and couldn't even have sex anymore without crying. I would be laid up for days with a heating pad. My mom wondered if it was endometriosis since she had it. I thought it was just scar tissue from a surgery 3 years earlier.
When I was finally able to get into the drs. I told them what I thought and what my mom thought and asked for a laporoscopy (thanks to my mom's advice) and they just put me in the run around with blood work, pregnancy tests and an ultra sound.
My ultrasound was one I will never forget.. When they did my ultrasound I learned my left ovary and left faloppian tube were gone. They were removed when I was 17 with out my or my parents knowledge. Other than that they found nothing.
They finally did the laparoscopy and determined I have endometriosis on my left side behind my uterus and near my intestinal wall. They didn't find any on the right side thank goodness, and they say my right side and uterus are pretty healthy. After my surgery and begin told it could come back my husband and I started TTC with no luck. We just learned I might have PCOS and haven't been ovulating on top of that I think the endometriosis is back. I can feel it again..View Thread
