THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! Sex is one of those topics that needs to be talked about, but it can be an odd subject to start talking about. I'm lucky and it sounds like you are too, that my husband is very understanding. I COMPLETLY understand where you are coming from on sometimes giving more then you get. There are some times that my head is VERY interested, but I can't get my heart into it. Those are the nights that I focus on at least one of us "works their issues out". I am glad that I am not the only one who the pain lasts longer then just the time during the act it self. My husband would be dieing right now if he knew what we were talking about. I need to go, but at least I know that I can call on you for ANY subject in regards to endo. emoticon Kris

kris--i SOOOO know where you're coming from. i tend to have tenderness and pain afters sex (sorry, i'm feeling blunt this morning. LOL.) right around ovulation time. i'm guessing it's from the surge of hormones and any endo i have gets "activated." since endo adheres organs together and many women have it behind their uterus (i did/do?), of course it makes it hard for the uterus and surrounding organs to be as "free floating" as they should be during intercourse. my pain always seems to end up focusing on one side, tho, like around one ovary so it's weird. but usually i'm fine in a day--two at most.

if i wake up the next morning sore and it's not gone on its own by lunch, i usually end up taking an ibuprofen. i hate doing that, but i limit myself to one and it normally does the trick. taking a hot bath in epsoms or baking soda and a few drops of lavender essential oil works great, too. (in fact i do that almost every single night anyway!) i've learned not to worry over that specific sort of pain because it makes recovering from it take longer!

as far as actually handling that time if i already know i'm sore or if it hurts right off the bat--well, if it's excruciating (which is rare) we either just take it slow and i force myself to relax (a few deep breaths seems to help) or i just umm...do something for him and we call it a night! LOL! hope that wasn't TMI! emoticon but hey, that's life. sometimes you give more than ya get but for me, i'm cool with that :)

but one thing about the relaxing, the few deep breaths really do help. and sometimes just briefly envisioning my organs not being cemented together and moving freely like they should helps, too. sounds strange but it works for me!

hope you are feeling better!

Today is going pretty good. I am getting my strength back after being knocked down with extreme Endo issues on Sunday. Not quite sure waht cased the issues, but I think it may have been over doing it night before with my husband (if you get what I mean). We have not done anything for a while and I was feeling so good, I thought I would try. Well, if that is what happened, it caused a set-back. I am glad to say it only knocked my down for a day or so, but it still was a setback. How do you guys handle "together" time with husbands? I know I usually handle it by putting it off and ignoring the problem. How about you? Talk to you later--Kris

hello again!

i think one important thing for this group is that we all feel open and unabashed about sharing our pain levels and experiences in dealing with it--emotionally, physically and spiritually.

pain is probably the first and foremost thing many women deal with when it comes to endometriosis, next in line with fertility issues. and as we all can agree, our levels of pain can make or break a day, a week, a month...or longer...and the presence (or absence!!) of it affects our quality of life and relationships!

SO...how are YOU feeling today? lately?

what triggers more pain? what seems to lessen it?

what do you do to deal with pain? what are your questions or ponderings?

please jump in and share! this is why we have support groups. don't feel like you are whining--this is how we learn from each other, and also help each other heal!

love you all!
