Read Nickesha’s Endo Story below…
I started my period at years and from that day u knew something was wrong. I would have my period 2 times per month or 1 time every 2 months. Ppl told my grandma all the stories “when she has sex the pain will stop, when she has a child”. 3 days out of each month i couldn’t leave the house. It continued like that till one day i had my period “20yrs old” it lasted 14days, I went to the doctor, I had a cyst on one of my overies, they said it would go away.
At age 27 trying to have a child with my husband. We noticed nothing was happening, this while I’m still having the pain, hot flashes, excess bleeding, anxiety and bunch of other things. I heard a story on health watch about a lady who was having the same problems for years and one day her lungs collapsed, “by endometriosis” it grew over the yrs to other organs.
I ran to Prof. Fredrick “Head of the Fertility Management Unit @ UWI” he checked and could tell @ that point I had endometriosis . Don’t be fooled though I had terrible fibroids, cyst and hormone problems.
Thanks to Jehovah, Prof Frederick, and my wonderfully husband who don’t care one bit if I can have kids. He says we can adopt. So check yourself!
