How I Got here

{updated 11/3/10}

I am 28 years old and I have been battling chronic pelvic pain for roughly eight or nine years.
It has been a long road of seeing several specialists, trying different interventions and medications and  two surgeries, which are not likely my last!
This year has been especially difficult as it has been chronic pain non-stop. In the past I have had pain off an on over a series of months, with perhaps some months of remission mixed in. But not this year! The pain is ongoing at this point. However, I do have some great {and some not so great} medical providers as well as alternative providers, such as accupunturist and a naturopathic doctor.

The diagnoses:

Endometriosis- 2nd laparoscopy 4/10
Hypothalamic Amenorrhea
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)-possibly
Vaginismus/Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
I will add more information as time permits.
Please feel free to email me at or leave a comment.
Thanks for stopping by!!
