Do I have endometriosis? Worried

Postby TTCfortoolong2016 » Sat Feb 20, 2016 9:24 am

I have a question hoping someone can help shed some light on....

My husband and I have been ttc for a long time with a miscarriage just over 2 years ago. We have both been checked out and have unexplained infertility. The only test I havent had is a lap for endo. I have regular periods, barely any pain except cramps a couple days before my period and sometimes at ovulation but I have started noticing since tracking everything that I get very loose bowel movements that look like very small pieces of tissue every month right before my period starts and sometimes right around ovulation. Is it possible I have endo? Both my husband and myself have recently started acupuncture but I'm concerned if i have endo it won't help. My acupuncturist said she thinks I'm very healthy reproductively but I can't shake this feeling something is really wrong... Any women with endo that didn't exhibit a lot of symptoms? Did anyone experience this bowel issue? Any replies would be appreciated.

Hi, I have painful periods but my mom also had them but she didn't have endo. I didn't actually think I have it. My periods are always accompanied by IBS, sometimes it's loose and frequent. Sometimes I am constipated.

I encourage you to get the lap. We have been TTC for well over a year and had 1 CP 1st month of trying then no luck until after my lap. I was certain my girlie bits were fine so I kept delaying the lap. I am regular, my hormones were fine and I ovulate every month.

But 2mos after the lap I got pregnant. If only I knew I had mild endo I would have done it sooner, probably saved me a lot of heartache from BFNs every month.

Hi, I'm in a similar situation as you were in Feb. Did you get the lap? We're you diagnosed with endo? I sometimes have loose bowel movements, and have at times had blood in my stool. I've been ttc for almost two years now, early miscarriage once. I don't get terrible cramps, but recently I had bad bacteria about two weeks before my period. It last three days. I'm waiting for a gastroenderologist appointment, but am supposed to start our this cycle. Just wondering if I should rule out endometriosis first.
