Endometriosis makes my life horrible.

by Sarah
(United States)

I have always had heavy unbearable periods since I was 13 that would last weeks into months at a time. I used to lock myself in my room and take 3 ibuprofen 800s with a heating pad and stuff my face with any sweet snack I could get my hands on.

Crying was an understatement, the pain I was enduring during these weeks and weeks of my period was insane. My parents would just laugh and tell me "its part of being a girl", and the gyno just thought I was over reacting.

Three years ago I started to loose so much blood from bleeding for months that I would just pass out in the middle of the room. Finally the gyno decided to give me the surgery to find out if I had endometriosis. And of course I did!

To this day I still have heavy and long lasting periods. My doctor is still mixing up my birth control trying to figure out which one is for me.

Now I have top notch anxiety, acne, and loosing hair from all the stress and pain symptoms that Endometriosis is causing in my life.

I wouldn't wish this on my worse enemy. And let me tell you Ibuprofen DOES NOT HELP ! The pain that I endure needs a real pain killer! To anyone that has endometriosis, I wish you the best of luck in your search for a cure.
