I am 25 years old, I have a job that I hate to love, and a man who loves me. I found out I have endometriosis at the beginning of 2012. After about 2 or more year’s of unexplained “you have IBS” symptoms, they told me that I have endo.
I have a lot of pain during and after sex, the pain can last for up to 3 days after! I also have pain and trouble going to the restroom. I look like I am about 3 month’s pregnant after I eat, stand, sit for to long, or even just randomly. I had the surgery in May of 2012, and 5 month’s later they believed me and told me that my endo is back. I felt great for 2 month’s after my surgery and then it all went down hill from there.
I am in a situation now of what to do next. Do I have surgery again, use hormones, or do the full hysterectomy? My boyfriend, of 8 year’s, and I have decided that we do not want children, so pregnancy is not in the cards. I am only 25 and I don’t know what to do. The pain and tiredness is really wearing on me.
