Hello! I have heard that many people with endometriosis have really heavy periods. That is not true for me. Mine were very brief and light, but I still have endometriosis. I had surgery a couple months ago and it helped a lot with the pain but recently I started feeling pain again. Sometimes I feel like my periods are light because my blood is flowing to other parts of the inside of my body instead of coming out. Does that make sense? Is that a thing? I thought I would have a longer period of relief before I had pain again, especially since I had an IUD put in.. but it doesn't seem to be that way. Feeling a bit discouraged. Looking for support from other ladies. Sounds like a lot of you are in the same boat.
I also have been having ongoing issues in the bedroom with my partner. He is generally pretty sensitive to some of my needs but seems to get upset whenever I bring up things that make our sex life more difficult. He takes it personally, so it makes it hard for me to talk about with him. I tell him I love him and am sexually attracted to him but my anxiety and occasional pain and discomfort makes it hard for me to be in the mood.
