Newbie,What Is Endometreosis?

Endo is short for endometriosis. It can have different levels of pain. It usually feels like terrible menstral cramps, followed by heavy and long periods. This pain usually does not subside when you walk or do exercise like most cramps. The adhesions can bind things together hense the pain. The tell tale for me is when sex becomes very painful. This can only be truly diagnosed by laproscopic surgery. Family history does play a part in this. I have a long history of it. I hope that you do not have it, but if you do...I'm here for you.
