Hi ladies,

I'm wondering if you can help as I don't have any experience with endometriosis so I was wondering what you think...

I just got my AF back after 2 yrs 8 mths. I had really bad abdominal pain for about a month prior to it starting. At one point I thought I had appendicitis, but eventually it went away and I got AF. My next cycle I got pelvic pain again, mostly in my uterus area..very tender type of pain, and it occurs usually when I should be ovulating. My last period (only the second PPAF) was very heavy with clots, very unusual for me. I thought I may even had miscarrid, but I had a BFN so it is unlikely. Now I'm around ovulation again and I have a very tender pelvis/uterus. I used to get ovulation pain, but that was sharper and only lasted a few hours. I know its not that as it feels very different.

And for a little added background I've had two c-sections, so maybe adhesions?Or does this sound like endo to you? I'm still pumping 3x a day for my two year old..Oh, I also have PCOS and we are TTC #3 so I'd like to get this cleared up if you guys think it may be endo..all I need is something else to affect our fertility!!

I don't know much about the c/s and adhesions. But the clots sound like endo as well as the ovulation pain. My pain around ovulation felt like cramps. I felt like I had menstrual cramps 3/4 of my cycle. And it was so bad around ovulation that I didn't feel like having intercourse to try to get pregnant. i also have clots and really heavy flow on my periods.

Also, I had always had heavy periods. But the clotting and pain were MUCH worse after I got my periods back postpartum (22 mos PP due to breastfeeding).

my mom had endo and i believe i have it but am not sure yet. my mom told me that endo doesnt grow while breastfeeding or while pregnant so i dont think you should be getting pains from it now if thats what it is. goodluck!

Endometrial implants shouldn't grow during pregnancy, but it is possible for the disease to advance while breastfeeding. Although it will prolong the benefits of pregnancy for a while, once you start cycling again, the hormones are there, and the disease can come back.
