My Endometriosis Story

I got diagnosed with endometriosis when I was 17, at the end of 2018. Before having the diagnosis, I had no idea what was wrong with me. I was constantly in pain, always feeling sick and was taken to hospital alot, yet they made no findings. The pain got worse, my sexual drive was lowered dramatically, to the point I lost interest in sex because it was badly hurting. I decided to get a second opinion and see my GP and explain my symptoms. I didn’t think much of it, I thought perhaps I contracted an STI hence the pain during sexual intercourse. I finally got to see a gynaecologist and explained to him, what my symptoms were. I was refered to have laparoscopy at my local hospital, and that is when they made the discovery I have stage two endometriosis. I have the scarrings removed but even to this day, I still get extreme pain. It has changed me, as I know that there is a 35% of re-growth. No matter what stage of endometriosis you have, all stages aren’t great and do impact you. I am content I know what is wrong with me, but knowing if I had waited any longer, it could have progressed rapidly. #EndometriosisAwarenessMonth
