I was diagnosed with endrometitis when i was 20. Had it removed from cervic but it had already spread to tube between bowel and kidney. Came off the pill 4 months ago.

Hi Anonymous,
I am not sure what your question is? Are you asking why you haven't gotten pregnant yet? Have you been to a doctor?

Thank you for any additional information you can provide so we can better assist you.

Thank you for asking your question. I hope my reply helps.

It's normal, after being on birth control pills, for cycles to take 3
to 6 months to get back to the pattern you had before starting the
pill. The fact that you do have a period, it sounds like they are
coming about every 5 weeks, is fine even if they are lasting just for a

The absence of pain is good indicating that being on the pill may have
some lasting effect. You can expect your periods to get heavier over
time as the pill effects wear off and the lining becomes thicker.
If your pain comes back, you should return to a gynecologist for help.

I cant have children without help. The pill was to stop pain. Had to came off pill has it started having no affect on pain. Since coming off i now im pain free. Have never been late in my life and when i do have a period now im lucky if it lasts a day. I worried that it is something else is now wrong. I haven't been having much luck in the health stakes.

Dear Anon,

What is it that you are concerned about? being pregnant? Sometimes our cycles change so if you have been late by 8-10 days for the last three months then perhaps that's your new cycle and not that it's late--Especially because you came off the pill and what not.

Is this what you are asking?
