24 with very irregular painful and heavy periods. Hot flashes. Painful intercourse. Low sex drive. Family history: premature menopause & endometriosis

Too young: Menopause prior to age 40 is considered to be premature so you are too young for a normal menopause but there is no way to be too young for premature menopause. To know whether this is what you are experiencing you need to know what caused it in your family members and you need to be seen for a full history, exam, and appropriate testing. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I'm still having pain during sex and after, my doctor can't find anything other than endometriosis on my kidney, what could it be?

I'm still having pain during sex and after, my doctor can't find anything other than endometriosis on my kidney, what could it be?

Many things.: Even though endometriosis was only found on your kidney, it still may be in other places in your abdominal cavity, just not detected. It may be behind your ovaries or in other places not seen or microscopic. Ther might be some adhesions, and you might be naturally sensitive. You might have what is known as vaginismus, or contraction of those muscles from impending pain on sex due to the above. ...Read more

I've had pain during sex and endometriosis has been ruled out. I've recently had sex and bled afterwards. Is it possibly my ovaries thats the problem?

I've had pain during sex and endometriosis has been ruled out. I've recently had sex and bled afterwards. Is it possibly my ovaries thats the problem?

Hard to say: If endometriosis has been ruled out through laparoscopy then potentially the pain is from your ovaries. Occasionally an ovarian cyst can cause pain with intercourse. If a laparoscopy has not been performed then there still needs to be some concern that endometriosis or scarring can be present. Bleeding after intercourse is more of a cervical issue. ...Read more

I was on Cerazette for three months to treat endometriosis. Now I am feeling pain during sex again after a week. What should I do?

I was on Cerazette for three months to treat endometriosis. Now I am feeling pain during sex again after a week. What should I do?

Surgery perhaps: It is likely if you have endometriosis that you have deep infiltrating endometriosis just behind the the uterus. This is possibly causing the pain with intercourse. You have tried birth control pills and while that often can help with the pain - but often not for the long term - it will not get rid of the endometriosis. The only way to really get rid of it is to excise it and this means surgery. ...Read more

Menstrual supression: Obtaining a diagnosis can sometimes be a little bit difficult . However if both the pain and bleeding is occurring with periods then the answer might be to stop periods.
