basically I've recently been diagnosed with endometriosis and PCOM (cysts on the ovaries). After years of suffering with really bad periods and them being so painful, pain during and after sex etc. and would just like some advice and stories of women who have the same thing and how they cope and what they find helps them with this. I'm currently on tramadol and ibuprofen for pain relief and constantly using hot water bottles which doesn't seem to help.

      Ask about physical therapy for the pelvic floor it may help? I have the same issue and it has been helpful though there is no cure!

      Buscopan can work wonders for period cramps. I also use a TENS machine.

      I've got my ultrasound on Friday to see if I can get a diagnosis. My boyfriend got me this long thin hot water bottle that wraps round you and you can tie it, it doesn't fix things but it helps a lot more than a normal hot water bottle! I can no longer take it but I used to find Naproxen helped, just make sure they also prescribe Omeprazole

Some ways to cope with endometriosis and PCOM include using heating pads or hot water bottles, taking prescribed painkillers like tramadol, staying hydrated, getting plenty of rest, and trying different positions during intercourse to minimize pain. Communication with your partner is also important. Some people have found relief using a TENS machine, anti-inflammatory supplements like turmeric, and maintaining a balanced diet. However, individual experiences may vary, and it's essential to consult with your doctor for personalized advice.
