why haven't doctors fixed painful periods. I have one and WHAT IS THIS?

I'm just getting a hysterectomy.

Sadly a hysterectomy might not be the solution. If you have pain due to endometriosis that’s outside the uterus 😞

Pelvic floor therapy? It can mitigate the muscle reactions that amplify pain if not the hormonal cause.

As someone who has had a hysterectomy, due to endo, I assure you, the pain goes away. The outside the uterus thing is the endometrial tissue migrating outside the uterus. When I had my hysterectomy, they removed that tissue from the organs it had settled on. Once I healed, because you will have to have an abdominal hysterectomy, your life will change.

Worked for me. I have no pain now. Took a minute to be able to use my bits again, but they still work!

Because women aren't important. We're supposed to just "suck it up", and stop whining, because "it's natural". At least that's the attitude I received from the time I started seeing a doctor around 18 until I finally got my hysterectomy at 49. Best thing ever. I had endometriosis, and I don't know if diagnosis has changed in the last 13 years, but when I had it, the only way to diagnose it was surgery.

I can’t wait to get a hysto! My periods are so painful and it’s miserable

It was way more painful post surgery than they prepared me for. Just make sure you have a plan for a med schedule and enemas are not cheating. Worth it.
