Hello everyone! So I've struggled with endometriosis since age 9. I got my first period at age 9. and then didn't bleed anymore but every month i experienced excruciating cramps. i didn't start bleeding again until age 11 but the cramps never went away. For years i thought this was normal. I was diagnosed with endometriosis officially at 25 but again thought nothing of it i have lived with this pain so long that ive just learned to manage with the pain and developed a ridiculously high pain tolerance. I've also experienced terrible stomach pain for the past few years and i mean absolutely horrible itll last a few days and then be gone and ive gone through GI docs and no one can ever find whats wrong. Well come to find out that can be a symptom of endo. Im 28 now with 2 biological kids and 2 amazing step daughters. I am 100% done with having kids. My doc actually suggested a hysterectomy i was both shocked and relieved. but i wanted to know do you ladies think its worth it will it help? or????
