It can cause hormonal fluxes and cause depression. Have you spoken with your gyn about your depression? There is treatment for it. I know it can help. My best friend and my sister have dealt with this. Talk to your doc. You should not have to feel this bad!

thank you for your concern. Yes I have talked to the doctor and he has tried things...sometimes it is just overwhelming...I am up right now while eveyone is aslep in pain and all I can do is sit here and feel sorry for myself. I guess i just wanted to hear that I was not alone and that other people feel this way too but have coping mechanisims that helped.

You're not alone...
Hi Jenwithendo,

I am sorry to hear you are suffering so. I am waiting to see if my endo is a one-off or if I have the condition. I am really lucky as I have private healthcare at work and after a month long heavy and extremely painful period which my GP dismissed and told me I'd have to put up with , I was referred to a private gyno - he was great and I had a laporscopy the follwing week. They caught it early and there was only a small growth which was lasered there and then.

I did see in another thread that a woman was trying the Endo diet which she said you can find on google. I have also heard that acupuncture can be very good at alleviating pain and helping with depression.

I know that this condition affects everyone in different ways and therefore I am thankful that so far mine is very mild. I hope that you can find treatment to help you. I hope that you find some solace in sharing your thoughts with others.
