can endo cause ovulation so painful you can hardly sit down because you feel as tho you are falling out? with your stomach feeling like if anything touches it you will scream , periods have been normal
when i went to th gyno about it he said that i needed to stop ovulating so i needed to either get pregnant or get on a pill no other options no other tests my mother has endo and i know that it can be hereditary so i got on bc and yes it stopped the pain but i feel it didn't fix it just covered it up like a bandaid
It sounds like you do have endo, and i would switch doctors and find one that will do a lap to varify if you do. I too had painful ovulation and the pill helped with having no pains because i dont get periods anymore but i am still ovulating on the pill (which i heard can happen) and I am still having the same pains. I would get a second opinion becuase yes it is hereditary, good luck :)
Ditch that doc, that wasn't at all the way to deal with your issues! What kind of reputible doctor would tell someone that they should get pregnant to cure pain?!!! I still have pain w/ ovulation, but I'm not on b/c pills since we've been TTC for four years. When I did take them the pain wasn't nearly as bad though. And the thing about it hurting to sit, YES, there are times I dread going to work since I sit at a computer all day and I know I'm going to be miserable. Go to another doc and ask lots of question, maybe you need a lap to check things out...it's about the only way to get a proper diagnosis of endo, also if you have insurance it's much easier to get approval for some of the treatments/meds if you have a surgical diagnosis.
Did you ever go for an ultrasound to see if you had cysts? I found out that was part of my problem. An ultrasound also showed that quite possibly that my ovary is adhered to my uterus due to adhesions. But a lap is the only way to prove what's going on. I got really lucky my HSG showed zero blockage so for me, it's just moving on with baby trying and IVF. But yes, I have had the same pain as you talk about and it seems that my cyst is causing it. (ovary is a size "2" while the cyst is a "5").
I was diagnosed with endo 15 years ago and finally had the surgery 13 years ago. I am 45 and got the same advice. If I got pregnant it would might get better. Doctor said that he had another patient who was 14 and almost crippled with pain most of the time and he was recommending that she get a hysterectomy or get pregnant also. So I'm not surprised.
After the surgery my doctor said that I would probably have to get the lap repeatedly because my condition was very bad. Instead I started charting when I had sudden flare-ups and just regular pain. Also read all I could find on the subject. I finally found an book written by a female doctor with endo. and she had some great recommendations that helped me incredibly.
The first was give up caffeine. I know, no way! But I have actually passed out from cramp pain and boy is that embarrassing to explain in high school. Ovulation was even a nightmare, not as long as my period cramps but sharp knifing pain. Going to the bathroom was painful. A full bladder was extremely painful. So I did it.
I gave up coffee, tea, chocolate, coke, etc... I thought I would go crazy, I was tired, I had headaches and I was grumpy!
It took about 3 months to get it totally out of my system but I have been pain free for the last 10 years. I still get mild cramps, heaviness in the legs and mood swings but nothing like before.
I know it's the removal of caffeine because I ordered a decaf latte at Starbucks about 4 years ago and they gave me espresso/latte instead. Had to go home and cry for awhile because of the pain. It started within 5 minutes after drinking it and the counter guy admitted he made a mistake and gave me a free coupon. While I drove home I fantasized about smacking him with a big stick.
I hope this helps, remember it takes several menstrual cycles to work completely so don't backslide! I know this doesn't "cure" it but I'd rather do this than the surgery and pain meds any day. Recently I have reintroduced dark chocolate in small amounts and green tea with fairly good results so maybe I will even get that espresso again one of these days - after menopause?
i need to know more about painful ovulation. i been diagnosed to have a endo and polycystic ovaries. i want to get pregnant. can u please help me out? is there any chance for me to get pregnant? my period s normal. 28 days cycle.
