Finally Getting Something Done

I was diagnosed with Endometriosis after the birth of my 3rd daughter, when she was 6 years old. No lap, surgery or anything. Just based off of symptoms. This was in 2006. I’ve been to numerous doctors and finally found a specialist in 2019 because now I’m bleeding so heavy each month, I’m now anemic.

I’m finally going in for a procedure this Friday to see what stage it is and what my treatment options are. Keep fighting ladies. Find someone who will listen to you.

    I have to wait 3 weeks for my test results. The Dr. also took me off of the medication I was on to control my monthly cycle bleeding until he gets my results,which I’m not too happy about. I haven’t had a cycle this month though,so fingers crossed it doesn’t return. Maybe I will get lucky and go through menopause without surgery. My Mom and late Sister had hysterectomies at the age of 40. (not related to Endo though)

    Hope you get the treatment you need! So sorry to hear you’ve been bleeding so much. I had a hysterectomy for my endometriosis when I was 39, best decision I’ve ever made. I wrote about my decision to have a hysterectomy here:

    It’s also very disheartening that it takes so long to find a doctor who will take you seriously, I’m happy that you found someone. Keep us posted as to your result and further steps!

    Hello @mommymc 🙂 I was diagnosed for years with endo as well and didn’t do much about it short of daily management of symptoms as well. Then a few years after having my children I also started bleeding very heavily which landed me anemic as well. Luckily I was able to have a procedure to “calm” the bleeding down. Anyway, I hope your procure went well on Friday and that you are resting comfortably today, hopefully with some answers. Take care! -Leanne, Community Moderator
