    5. When I was in SS3, I failed my NECO Commerce Exam because of Menstrual pain. I was in excruciating pain throughout the exam and it felt like life left my body even after using two different types of painkillers!

      After 2 kids, I still have serious pain that even make me misbehave that starts days before my menses and heavy period.

    6. SDK teacher anon 13.15, you people need to remove the sticks up your ass.
      We all come here to unwind socially,many times we are in the middle of housework and looking after kids. We do not have the time to proof read nor check spellings, so leave MUM SDK alone. This is not a school thesis but a blog. So far you understand what the person intends writing.

  3. Hhmmnnn... This endometriosis is not a child's play coupled with cyst.
    I have been married for over 8years without being pregnant once in my life. The pain I experience every month is not what I wish for my enemy. Is it me being carried back home frome work(when I use to work in the bank) or sleeping in hospitals.
    I kept on praying and God healed me and I did not experience it again for about 4 yrs only for the pain to experience the pain again 4 months ago(this occurred due to the clomid drug I was given in the hospital).

    One night as I was in pain I made up my mind to leave my marriage, beg my husband in the presence of my family to take another wife while I remove my womb cos I could not go through that horrible pain again. I chose to do it in the presence of my family so they would not think my husband influenced me to taking the action. I prayed and cried that night for God to see me through, then I changed my mind again and decided to do what I did initially (prayer).

    My sisters thouuh am not pregnant yet but I know God is still God. Will keep praying and trusting in him cos if not for him I would have undergone countless sugries but God says No.

    I want to thank God for giving me the best husband.

    Sorry, for the long epistle, pls ignore my blunder

    13. @ bed and tosses and brown sucre, I am the anonymous up there. I have gone to different hospitals and seen different gynecologists, I have been on injection that goes directed into my tummy for 6 months @ 60k a month, I have taken traditional medicines, I have prayed concerning IVF but God said it's not an option(not through pastors o), God even told me not to go for adoption.it got to a point I and my husband stopped praying for conception but healing. The only thing that relives me is prayers. I know his grace is sufficient for me. He shall wipe my tears and all those looking up to him.

      Thanks you all for the prayers

    14. Good morning, I am a Gynecologist with further subspecialty in fertility. Please consider IVF with surrogacy. That’s the best option, as for the other symptoms associated with endometriosis please see a proper Gynae for treatment.

    15. Anon 9:06 i pray that God's grace will be sufficient for you why not consider surrogacy their is one Nike woman i read her story she was once a beauty queen she gave birth using surrogacy she suffers from this same endometriosis and her story is just like yours. I pray God strengthens you it is not easy at all

    16. God will heal you. You can try lVF with surrogacy. A lot of people are doing it. Is just to retrieve your eggs and use your husband's sperms.

  6. What women go through in this life is too much, monthly bleeding with pains is not an easy thing to experience, heavy bleeding is another thing. Some people cannot stand the pain, they have take off their womb to be alive but the fear of what the society will say if you do not give birth has made alot of women to be suffering in pains without talking to anyone.

    Lord heal our world, country and nation πŸ™πŸ˜’ take away the pain women go through, I have not seen in your word where you said we will experience heavy, painful monthly flow πŸ˜’πŸ˜žπŸ™ please heal us all going through painful monthly flow πŸ™πŸ˜’

  10. For ending period pain - one word(medication) Gabapentine!!!
    By the way, after the Zoladex wears out it is back to square one(though I don’t pray it for you). Best solutions if you plan to have kids- uterine embolization2) mymectomy or continue on Zoladex or lupron. These are hormones that manipulate your systems and help stop periods. But they won’t give it to you forever especially if you are still young and if child bearing age. They are meant to shrink fibroids before surgery or Alleviate pain and give you a breather from period. Best solution if you’ve had your children do a full or partial hysterectomy. Please please do it the old school method of cesarean not the robotic type. Not only is the robotic type stupidly painful(they don’t tell you since they make the most money from it), there is a higher chance of it damaging something especially your bladder and that is an even worse wahala. The old school type surgery for hysterectomy is quick, clean and they get to see your inside and clean it up well and you move on with your life. If the endo has spread to other organs even after the hysterectomy you will still have forever pain even after menopause. So this is a decision you have to pray, educate yourself and weigh the risks very very well. Everybody is different and their health and complications and budget are different as well. Partial hysterectomy is better if you don’t want to have heart issues later in life. They never told our mothers this but it is a major complication that people don’t talk about. They way God crafted women is very complicated. So you have to ask your self if you want your ovaries removed too. Do your own research online there are many support groups and online gatherings that people share experiences. Many African women suffer this in silence and it is a huge problem that men and the society refuse to talk about.
    But if you want everything to remain intact so you can continue to enjoy a healthy sex life, gabapentin(which by the way was developed for epilepsy until they discovered it is excellent for extreme pain relief and not habit forming like the other pain meds). Don’t over do it, you will gain weight. Throughout your period you will need only one or two pills the first two days of your period, in my case were the most painful. You take it fall asleep and you will have a blissful remaining three days bleeding with absolute no pain. It is dirt cheap medication as well. Hope this helps. We have to share our experiences and help each other. Men just don’t get it. If it was a male issue, they would have found a cure.

  11. Heavy bleeding and severe menstrual cramps is what I don't even pray for my enemy. At a point while I was still in the university, one day I use 7pads, just the first day alone. It was terrible. It's better now but the pain is still there

  12. GOD actually healed me, the pain was out of this world and I fainted at least four times, I will cry, scream and that's all I can remember only to wake up 8 or more hours later, till one fateful day, they announced in church that fruit fasting will be starting the following day which was Monday and would end on sunday, I wanted to participate, so that Monday of it I went to church in the morning for morning service, on getting there, my period started, the pain came in like a rush, so I decided I needed to eat so that I can take drugs, and I remember saying in my heart LORD I really wanted to do this fasting but I cant bear this pain,I need to eat so that I can take drugs to reduce the pain, the pain became so unbearable and service hasn't even ended, that's how I fainted on the chair, the ushers thought I sleept off but no I actually fainted,then I woke up 30 mins later, I feeling wet but the pain was gone,till the service ended,I got home and was able to do the fruit fasting that week, I could only feel wetness, the pain was completely gone, this happened around 2018 and toll today my period became normal, no more pain, I am and will always to grateful to GOD almighty

  14. I can relate to her situation. It happened to my daughter. I never thought I would be a grandmother because of her condition. When she was a teenager in secondary school, she was diagnosis to have ovarian cysts and that she should have a surgery to remove them, I asked the question, after the surgery will she be okay and I was told that the cysts can grow back again so she didn't go for the surgery. She was managing the pain. Later when she was 35 years old fibroids also was diagnosed making 2 conditions, ovarian cysts and fibroids and the doctor told her she has to go for the surgery, we were afraid but we summoned the courage and with prayer she had the surgery. After the surgery, the doctor told her that while operating on her he found endometriosis in her and had removed it, he even told her that she should about think of IVF and if that fails she should adopt and she was placed on zoladex for 6 months. But since we have a living God who never fails, who is always on the throne, who always answers prayers, when she was to take the fifth one because it's once a month, herself, her husband, we her family, all of us who are working and living a comfortable life, we didn't have one Kobo to buy it, one cost 25,000 then, even to pull all our resources together to buy it, for where and if she missed one month she had to start all over again. We were still running around to look for the money when she fell sick, we thought it was malaria, she used malaria drugs she was still sick, so she went to the hospital, she was asked to do some test including pregnancy test, you know in Nigeria once you are a girl or woman and you are sick the first thing will be you should have pregnancy test done. When the nurses saw it they were saying how can one who is on zoladex be pregnant. Sha she went to do all the tests and low and behold she was pregnant. When she told I said it was a lie that until I see her stomach growing that is when I will believe. We didn't know that God knew why we couldn't raised just 25,000 that month for zoladex. Whenever she went for antenatal all the nurses on duty would be looking at file that one who is on zoladex is pregnant, that it is a miracle. When she had her baby, she phoned the doctor who performed her surgery that she has a baby, he couldn't believe it. Now by the grace of God she has three beautiful, intelligent and healthy children. SO, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO DO IN ANYONE'S LIFE. If it is medical challenge, seek medical attention and pray to God. Combine the two together and everything will be work out for the best.
