Hi all, I'm definitely new here and went looking for answers to some questions. I have a lot but I didn't see if anyone had talked about this specifically yet, forgive me if this is a needless discussion!
Has having your endometrial tissue cauterized/removed/etc. caused a somewhat sudden increase of libido for anyone here? Pain during insertion of tampons or attempted intercourse is honestly what led to my endometriosis diagnosis. But this isn't libido in terms of an oh-I'm-excited-to-see-if-the-pain-is-gone-now way. I've felt consistently just, slowly more horny since my surgery almost 2 weeks ago and it's kind of annoying! Not complaining but my lover is currently in a different country, haha. I'm wondering if this is normal, or people meant that endometriosis decreases your libido only because sex is painful- that's what I always assumed.
I'm 21 and learning that I've probably had endo since I would have started to develop a libido, in my teens. I was a late bloomer compared to some folks. I've started to wonder if I wouldn't really have a good frame of reference if endo has always impacted my libido, chemically or something and I don't know what it was supposed to be like.
