    Since 6th grade, I was thrown onto birth control pills and thought that sitting in the nurses office with two super pads on was normal. HA! My stomach felt like I was the punching bag for all the mean 6th grade bullies or the kids who were being bullied. After almost 10 years of pain, I finally found a doctor who listened. The pain that you don’t wish on your worst enemy. I was almost bleeding it seemed and tampons would slip out. I kept the target 5 for $20 underwear section in business. This was the norm.

    The word endometriosis finally was spoken. And about a year and a half later, I was taken into surgery. She removed about ten different areas of endometriosis.

        Hey, you are talking about . They basically told me I need to eat more fiber and it will go away. I did that, and it didn’t help! I tried suggesting other potential causes that are a bit more rare (chronic appendicitis, diverticulitis, etc. for this you have to search on google.
