Lets see, it all started when I was 8 years old. I remember the day just like it happened yesterday. This was when I started my period for the first time. I just remember being curled up in a ball and crying because the pain was so bad. Throughout the years, the pain got worse and worse, followed by periods that would last up to 2 months long. By the time I was 15 years old, I was told that I wouldn’t be able to have children, so I begged to have my ovaries removed.
When I was 19, I finally was able to have endometriosis surgery, which it gave me very little pain for about 2 months. I am now 21 and fighting not having to have surgery again. I just finished up with my second round of the Lupron shots and I’m waiting to go see the doctor again. I just want to thank all the women that write on here, because hearing your stories gives me hope that one day, I will be able to have my own child and that hopefully one day I will be in no more pain and love being a woman!
