If there was one thing you could say to help people understand Endometriosis, what would it be? Share it in the Comments Below!

My name is Tiffany and I would like to share my story. I am 28 years old and I have struggled with endometriosis for 13 years since I was 15. For 8 years it went undiagnosed because no one believed me when I told them I was in pain. They said I was overreacting or it was just in my head. For 8 years I suffered while no one believed or cared to even really listen to me.

It wasn’t until I was 23 and finally found a doctor who listened to me that I was diagnosed with endometriosis. That was when I had my first laparoscopic surgery. He found the endometriosis and a ruptured cyst. I had also been bleeding out and I had an infection that was starting to spread from my ovary to my Fallopian tube. If that doctor hadn’t taken me seriously I honestly don’t know what would have happened. Since then I have had a total of 3 surgeries, one healthy pregnancy, and two miscarriages.

I have my good days and I have had my bad days. Since November of last year, they have all been pretty bad. I’m on recovery day 2 from my 3rd surgery and it has been pretty hard on me. I am currently suffering from hair loss which I believe is from both my miscarriages and the endometriosis. This disease wreaks havoc on us women. It causes us so much pain and stress and even though I have been legitimately diagnosed, there are still people that don’t believe it or just don’t understand.

We need to find a way to make people more aware of this disease that affects so many of us women. I just want to let all you beautiful endo warriors out there know – you are not alone! We are strong and beating and brave and we got this! JUST BECAUSE YOU CANNOT SEE IT DOES NOT MEAN IT IS NOT REAL!
