Stayseeliz Posted July 24, 2012 Share Posted July 24, 2012 I was told I probably had endometriosis after an endomtetrial biopsy 5 years ago. Since I was newly pregnant they said not to worry about it until it bothered me. Two kids and a tubal ligation later it's bothering me. I'm having super heavy cycles and incredibly intense pain at random times. It's horrible shooting/stabbing pain but it only lasts an hour or two a few times a month then it's gone. It's annoying and painful but it doesn't last long. I wound up in the ER last night with the pain. They ruled out cysts or anything more serious and said it was probably the endo. Since I am self pay I'm wondering how helpful the surgeries, etc are. It seems like no one knows what causes it so the main goal is pain management. Should I just do that on my own? We can't afford thousands of dollars for them to hand me a pain pill. I'd like to avoid birth control pills. What are my options?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
