Being in a relationship while dealing with pelvic and vulval-vaginal pain can be extra challenging, for this reason I created Rosebed Women’s Health as a platform to share what I’ve learned (and am learning!) about life and being in a relationship (6+years) with pelvic and vulval-vaginal pain. I write about pelvic and vulval-vaginal conditions including (but not limited to) Adenomyosis, Endometriosis, Interstitial Cystitis, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Vulvodynia, Vestibulodynia etc. Rosebed is committed to spreading factual information about a myriad of women’s health issues! #KnowledgeIsPower
**Excision surgery is the GOLD standard of care in the treatment of endometriosis. Please read up on the Endopaedia and/or join Endometropolis on Facebook to locate the nearest excision surgeon to you, and to learn more about what Endometriosis is, its likely origin, and why excision is the current best treatment to eradicate the disease. Please also take a moment to read this excellent article (and others!) about Endometriosis by the Vital Health Endometriosis Center**
A little about me: I hold a B.S. in Human Development and Family Science/Human Services that I have yet to use in the “real world.” I am managing the effects of having had endometriosis, in addition to current Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Vestibulodynia/Vulvodynia, IBS, and Interstitial Cystitis. I had a Hysterectomy (became hystersister 2018) for adenomyosis as well as a unilateral oopherectomy (removal of left ovary due to complications from scar tissue and endometrioma 2018), bilateral salpingectomy, presacral neurectomy, and excision of endometriosis. I considered myself totally endometriosis free after my first excision 4+ years ago, until the discovery of the endometrioma this year. I once again consider myself endometriosis free, however despite being disease free I do still experience some pain from having had it. In other words I’m just a person with life experience and some research skills.
