Hi ladies, this is probably going to be a long post with a lot of 'tmi' so I do apologise in advance.
From the age of around 15/16 years old I have suffered absolutely horrendously with my periods, I have had surgery on my spine when I was 16 years old and I swear my period pain is worse than that whole experience. It's absolutely agonising for the first 2 sometimes 3 days of my period and then it goes completely, also along with my period is horrible diarrhoea and sickness for the first few days.. every month which means I always have to have time off work every month.
Ive tried once before to go through the process of getting a diagnosis but as I was so young I felt like none of the doctors took me seriously and thought it was just the process of my periods adjusting to my body as I was/ I am so young. They refused to give me a laparoscopy and told me to try the contraceptive implant which totally messed up my cycle completely and I got it taken out after 6 months due to constant bleeding. (literally a weeks worth of not bleeding each month)
I am now 18 years old and with the support of my amazing partner and family I have been trying for a baby since November last year because I was and still am terrified about not being able to have children- with no luck yet.
I know a lot of people wont agree with me trying for a baby so young but this is right for me and my partner and we both are as prepared as any other 'wannabe' parents. I hope someone can give me some advice and support as to what to do next.

I forgot to add also, Endometriosis runs strongly in my family. My mother, her grandmother, her auntie and her two cousins all have Endometriosis. My mums cousins both have had hysterectomy's and were unable to have children beforehand, my mum conceived me and my sister quite young and is now infertile due to endometriosis and PCOS

i had the disease before and was cured by tcm, my doctor told me Although the exact cause of endometriosis is not certain, several possible explanations include:Retrograde menstruation. Embryonic cell growth.Surgical scar implantation.Endometrial cells transport.Immune system disorder.
Treatment for endometriosis is usually with medications or surgery. The approach you and your doctor choose will depend on the severity of your signs and symptoms and whether you hope to become pregnant.Generally, doctors recommend trying conservative treatment approaches first, opting for surgery as a last resort.
Pain medications,such as the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) or naproxen (Aleve, others), to help ease painful menstrual cramps. A type of tcm called pill of fu yan can be chosen as a better treatment with no drug resistance or side effect. Hormone therapies include Hormonal contraceptives. Hormonal contraceptives. Hormonal contraceptives. Hormonal contraceptives. can be taken.
Conservative surgery, Assisted reproductive technologies and Hysterectomy can be chosen too.
