Hi! I’m very new to the whole endometriosis stuff and I’m indeed very lost since I can’t get any information and think it’s best to ask someone who has been dealing with this condition for maybe a little longer. I have endometriosis. I ended up in the hospital because of a couple of baby cysts I had on my left ovarie. Apparently one bursted which caused extreme pain.

Since this happened I’ve had the “chocolate brown” discharge. It has been probably longer than 3 weeks by now and it hasn’t gone away. It has gotten less but not gone.

Has anyone dealt with this?

  1. Welcome! I have had multiple endometriomas/chocolate cysts in my life and I had two rupture...I'm so sorry you experienced a ruptured cyst, as it was definitely the worst pain I've ever had in my life. I did have discharge for a while. I would highly encourage you to do a follow-up with your gynecologist. Although your cysts may be a different type than endometriomas, it is important to get checked. Here are a couple of articles to get you started:
