I Didn’t Know

My oldest started her period young. She wanted to get it very badly. Started out fine but as she got older, her pain increased. Her pediatrician sent us to a gyno who only increased her pain meds. I had no idea what could be wrong or how to help her. Out of 6 daughters, my oldest is the only one with endo. About 5 years ago, she had 2 surgeries, the last was a hysterectomy with an ovary remaining. I pray that my daughter does not encounter anymore.
