    Where to begin

    I've been thinking I could have endometriosis for the past couple years. I have pelvic pain almost constantly and sometimes after sex it's really bad. I've also been told that could be the reason for my fatigue at 21 years old. I haven't seen a doctor for it yet. I will this Friday. Where do I even start with my doctor?

    Hi I am 22 and have had very similar issues. If it is hurting for a prolonged time after sex (mine would cramp and still hurt for about 30 minutes after sex) it may be an enlarged cyst. That is what mine ended up being, I would go straight to a GYN not a regular doctor, they wont have the equipment there to do tests right away or the right mind set to think that's what it could be. Definitely recommend a GYN. Maybe also try ice packs after sex, it doesn't help right away but after about 5-10 it helps relieve the swelling and pain and gives you something else to focus on besides the pain. Best of luck!
