Had painful periods all my life. Had problems getting pregnant and bleeding throughout 3 pregnancies - 2 children later. After the second child I would not quit bleeding or in pain. Tried lol upping birth control 3 times, done a DNC, no help would relive anything. So 2 years later had a complete hysterectomy. Where they said I had endometriosis.
