Does anyone with Adenomyosis and/or Endometriosis get this really heavy feeling in their uterus? It’s hard to explain, the best I can explain it with its like there’s a weight where my uterus is and I feel like I need to push it out/prolapse it. I do know it’s not my pelvic floor because it only happens when I’m not on my hormone medication :( I am DX’d with endo and possibly have minor adeno. Thank you!

      It feels like someone is gripping my cervix like an Atari. I imagine the adhesions are pulling and making it feel tight, as well as the rest of the inflammation in your body. If your pelvic floor is weak it may be getting pushed down.

      I would get this feeling while I was at the peak of my cycle, when I would bleed the most. It also made me feel like I had to pee CONSTANTLY and was not my favorite feeling ever. Thank God for birth control that stops my periods completely, I haven't had that heavy, get it out of me feeling in years

      This started happening to me after my endo surgery/when they put my iud in (during surgery). I thought it was prolapsing!! I went to the ob and she said everything looked okay but she took the iud out just in case and I haven’t had the feeling since (switched to the pill to control the endo). Are you using an iud?? If you are, maybe try switching. If not, my doc said the feeling most likely comes from your cervix dropping low during different stages of your cycle. It can feel like your passing a bowling ball but as long as it gets checked and everything is in the proper place, I think it’s just a weird feeling but not dangerous. The joys of endo!!! Best of luck ladies 💕

        @CGC thank you so much for your response! I don’t have an IUD and thankfully I do know things are where they need to be (they keep checking lol). I just kept getting weird looks from some of my doctors about it when I describe it, so I was wondering if others have also been experiencing it! Thank you again, I really appreciate your input ☺️

      I'm not sure if this is the same but when I'm on my menstrual cycle it's extremely heavy and I have a lot of lining trying to shed at all at once. My gyno once said it could be a contraction to help get out a mass vs just blood. But I've definitely experienced more of an extreme pressure/weight when that happens. I hope this helps!

      I get this feeling on and off! I haven’t been able to pinpoint any specific triggers or anything like that but it feels to me like a weight pulling it down or extreme pressure like it’s going to come out but I have not prolapsed and I got checked when it was happening and all they could tell me was that I was not prolapsing and no other explanation.
