That's sounds horrible. /: I do not have either but I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Now the doctors are thinkings it something else related to my adrenal glands. I've always had extremely bad periods and very painful cramps. What are your doctors recommending for treatment?
I had endometriosis in my 20's that was surgically removed with laser during a diagnostic laparoscopy, for infertility reasons. It looked like a ball of yarn when they started. Pregnancy is a good deterrant, which I did twice, and I never got it back. I would ask for that first, MUCH less invasive!!
