My story started when I was just eleven years old. My period began and I noticed I had EXTREME pain, unlike normal cramps other girls my age had, on my left side and some very awful bloating. I was told that this was normal, and this was very far from normal!

I ended up dealing with the pain and having nobody believe me until finally, someone did! I had a new doctor and I told her my symptoms. She knew that endometriosis was more than likely the cause, so she put me on a birth control pill. I was on this with no other help for about 5 years until I turned 16.

At 16 years old, I finally had a laparoscopy which diagnosed the endometriosis inside of me. I finally had an answer which has allowed me to make decisions to deal with the pain I am in on a daily basis. Two years after this surgery I decided to try the implant for birth control and it has completely stopped my periods and the pain is very minimal now! Thank goodness! I am currently 19 and have been doing really well managing this disease.
