For those of you who might be unfamiliar to what is endometriosis I thought I’d share some info and my experience with it.
What is endometriosis- Endometriosis occurs when endometrial tissue grows outside of the uterus on other organs or structures in the body. This causes pain, irregular bleeding, and problems with infertility.
This blog post is mainly to share my experiences and how I cope
When I was 18 I had this excruciating pain during “that time of the month”. For two years I dealt with doctors telling me that it was “normal”, to take Ibprophen and that I was too young to have endometriosis and even if I did have it that removing my ovaries was the only thing they could do! It wasn’t till I was 20 that I finally got some answers!. A week later I had an ultrasound done and there you have it , I was diagnoses with endometriosis. Not gonna lie I balled my eyes out ..I was thankful that my mom was their to hold my hand. The Dr. said that I needed to get a laparoscopy done ASAP !.
Laparoscopy– A short surgical procedure performed through a very small
incision in the abdomen (usually the belly button). A laparoscope is inserted into the incision, and it
gives the physician an exceptionally clear view, on a television
monitor, of the inside of the abdominal cavity.
