Symptoms of endometriosis

Hello, I am 26 years old. January 2020 I came off the depo injection to hope to become pregnant. Going to be strange but November 2020 was the first time ever I had come on my period. Late starter I guess. Didn't think anything of it
January 2021 I had a awful pain on my left side under my rib all the way to left my ovary. For 4 months coming in and out of hospital. They thought it was my injection playing up as been on it for a few years, to actucally find a hemorrhage ovulation cyst size of a gold ball. We still were trying for a baby but not often as I have given up some hope. They pain has come every month for 2 weeks when on my period and even worse when ovaliting. I went on the mini pill June 2021 to help and the cyst has gone however the pain is still there.

Painful sex
Heavy weight on my left side everyday. Mild then for 2 weeks strong.
Heavy bleeding about 5 pads a day
Feels when laying down someone has placed bricks on my side

They think it is endometriosis and are doing keyhole when they can for a camera to make sure.
Has anyone else had any of theses symptoms or stories of people like me?
Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. Hi , goodness, it sure does sound like you are going through a lot. I'm so sorry to hear that and my heart is going out to you dear, Lucy. I have not personally experienced what you mentioned above but I do know that those symptoms you are experiencing are not uncommon for those in this community to experience. I am going to leave quite a few articles here addressing a few things while we wait for others to chime in.

    I hope some of those articles help for now while we wait. You mentioned getting a procedure done to take a closer look at what's going on. Has that been scheduled yet Lucy? Please keep us posted! ๐Ÿ’›Thinking of you, Kayleigh, team

    1. Thank you so much.
      I really needed that today. I will have a look at the websites. I really appreciate it. They haven't yet said when I'm booked in, waiting for gynecologist to send me another appointment but can take weeks, months or up to a year. Hopefully soon, positive vibes ๐Ÿค˜ Thank you again ๐Ÿ˜Š

      1. Dang , weeks months or up to a year?! Probably some of my least favorite things to hear from a doctor's office. Just get me in asap please! Please keep us posted on when you get a date! Sending lots of love your way! ๐Ÿ’› Kayleigh, team
