Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Endo Pain Getting Worse
I was diagnosed in sept 2012 w/ endo. I am 30 yrs old. Had the symptoms my whole life and everyone said it was normal. So I was on depo for 10 years as that helped with the symptoms. I heard that could take a while to get out of your system so switched to bc pills for about 6 months and they got too costly, so got the mirena IUD put in. Did fine on that for about 4 years and then started bleeding, couldn't walk, and had to have surgery. After surgery I could walk again, was able to move about but within a few weeks the pain got bad again. Tried the IUD plus different combos of bc pills and they didn't help with the pain. I wanted to finish school and since depo worked before, I got that shot april 9 2013 while my iud was still in. It stopped the bleeding but not the pain. I couldn't continue with school due to the pain, and decided in April that we would get the IUD out July 13 2013 when the depo shot wore off. I had af the whole month of july (11-25 27-31). In aug I had 3 days of spotting (2nd, 5th, 16th). Then started a normal cycle sept 1-6 af. oct af 2nd-5th. oct 31st -nov 5th af. should have ovulated around 11-16th. started having sex every day 5 days prior to ovulation since the sperm can live for 5 days. Then was in too much pain and did it every other day through 18th. Got a BFP on black friday. beta levels were good and have an ultrasound scheduled for 12-10-13 to make sure its not ectopic. Since the beta levels were fine, I don't really think I need to worry. Good luck to you all. Keep in mind that, although it is different for everyone, my pain has increased substantially and I may go on short term disability leave from work if it continues. If anyone has any good books for prego people w/ endo or any websites, please let me know cuz I would really like to know when I can expect the pain to start diminishing and what is normal and what is not.
