possible ashermans or endometriosis or PCOS [JadeLee] 1 child; Minnesota 12190 posts

I keep dwelling on this and I need to stop because I don't have my U/S until Friday. And I meet with the OB right after.



I need to distract myself from searching Google and BG because I don't know anything yet.



All signs are pointing to Ashermans though, since I am self diagnosing and all. lol



So I am posting again but maybe there is someone on now that has any more input.
Here is my previous post: http://forum.baby-gaga.com/about2477281.html

It is rare, but a woman with PCOS can still have regular periods, although uncommon. I don't know what asherman's is, but you could have endometriosis. That can cause a significant amount of pain. I hope you get some answers soon.

I'm on a forum just for ladies with PCOS, many of them have regular periods and no cysts. It took a while for them to get diagnosed because of that. I don't know anything about asherman's, I do know with endometriosis it can only be diagnosed through surgery. Good luck, I hope you get some answers soon.

Yeah, he is testing my testosterone and he said they will look at my ovaries for the U/s also just in case.



Ashermans is scar tissue in the uterus following (usually) an invasive D&C and it is very rare apparently, I can't find much online about it or people to talk to.



And the endometriosis definitely can.



It has been something I have lived with for 3 and a half years just because of my fear of going to the doctor.

Well, now that you are going to see a doctor, I wish you good luck. I have a friend who had insanely painful periods, where she'd have to call out of work, and would be in tears. She didn't find out until 4 years later that she had endometriosis, that was also hindering her from conceiving too. She had a laproscopy and had all of her endo removed. She's fine now, doesn't have that pain anymore, and was able to finally conceive her first child. GL!
