I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Eff you endo!

Daym. This is some serious business with this period. Ibuprofen 800 and tylenol aint cutting it. I'm waiting until 8AM so I can call to request something else. Usually this NSAID works okay for me. But, the 8 hrs in between doses is too long and completely negates it's effects. I managed to sit like a blob at work yesterday, but, I'm not quite sure I'll be able to hang today. There is a concert tonight...I hope I can make it to that! My friend bought me the tickets for my bday!!!

Hoping the worst has come and is leaving now. I wonder if this will be a longer that usual period with all that's going on inside...I hope not!!!

Yes, I know that pain. You have to take the 800 ibup and then 3 hours later take the tylenol and then 3 hours later take the 800 ibup.

I hope the pain subsides soon. :(

I know how you are feeling. Hope the pain goes. Shall we start a 'we hate endo' club? Not only am I recovering from my lap but my period has started as well.
Feel better soon

do you have a hot water bottle? i had my period when i had my lap and i couldn't take any anti-inflammatory meds so i thought i was going to die. i went to the hospital with my m.agic bag (it's an oat filled bag that you can reheat in the microwave). it helped while it was still hot. i find only heat can distract me from pain.

i hope the pain subsides so you can go to the concert.

endo sucks!!!!
