Freedom at last – Lisa’s story

I was 12 when the pains first started. Excruciating pains such that I would count the hours between pain killers and hide at the back of the class trying not to cry.

My Debilitating Endometriosis Symptoms – Kate’s Story

My debilitating endometriosis symptoms – Kate’s story

Hi, I’m Kate, 39, married with no children. I had always suffered from heavy and painful periods but this had mostly been managed by taking the combined pill. My periods remained heavy and I suffered from some flooding but this was manageable with planning! Approximately 7 years ago my periods became worse and I started to experience more symptoms such as regular and frequent abdominal pain, random bleeding, bloating, very painful intercourse and things just didn’t feel right. Anyway I went to the Dr’s who straight away suggested that it sounded like I had endometriosis and referred me to a consultant. After initial investigations such as scans, I was booked in for a laparoscopy. The results of which were that I did indeed have endometriosis and a number of adhesion’s were removed. I was signed off from work for 2 weeks and got back to life, back on the combined pill adhesion’s and things seemed to be resolved.

Ovarian Remnant Syndrome – Sue’s story

After suffering with endometriosis I decided at the age of 35 that I wanted a hysterectomy (despite having no children). Since the age of 13 I had suffered with severe period pain. When I was 26 I saw a gynaecologist (Mr W), who decided to do a D&C, this did not help with the pain so Mr W then did a laparoscopy. I was diagnosed with extensive endometriosis.
