    I realize I’m working against evolution here, but – STOP BEING AN IDIOT BEFORE IT KILLS YOU. Endometriosis is an extremely serious condition which can lead to infertility or even death. I’m sure the ER advised you to follow up, right?

    Pain is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. By taking painkillers you are treating the symptom but not the CAUSE of the pain. “What’s that Lassie? Something’s wrong? Shh, here’s a biscuit, go lie down.” Timmy would not have survived long if his parents took your approach.

    See a doctor ASAP, and in the future please remember that being given pain meds and discharged by the ER does not mean you are all better. In many cases you still need to see your doctor, they are merely providing EMERGENCY care to stabilize you and manage the pain until you can do so.

    Endometriosis is generally characterized by a history of long, heavy and painful periods. I’m including some links that should be really helpful.

    Also, the commenter who said endometriosis can lead to death is an idiot, and the commenter who doesn’t know the difference between endometriosis and endometrial cancer is also an idiot,
