The one with "Too much information"

**TMI Alert*** 
I did warn you this blog wouldn't be all pretty, having endometriosis also means that it can be quite gory, so feel free to bypass this post  as it is moreso for me and also to share common symptoms of this disease. 

As I mentioned in my last post, I started bleeding mid-cycle last Tuesday. My other half was really worried but I put it down to stress on my body from the previous operation in January as well as stress on my mind from everything that has been happening. After three days, I was fed up and as it wasn't remotely 'normal' for me (although none of this can be deemed normal, so god knows why I would use that word) I ended up phoning the new GYNO and spoke with his secretary who thought it was probably best to speak to him seeing as how I was mid-cycle and this was not my usual cycle.
After waiting most of the day I finally got a phone call back from the specialist saying exactly as I had suspected. A very common symptom from endometriosis :( 

It would seem that I am now getting most of the other symptoms of severe endometriosis… and I really don't like it. 

The bleeding lasted well into the weekend and finally eased off to a moderate spotting yesterday (Sunday)

Today I realised that it is day 23 and after a burst of PMT (aka snappy anger) it appears that this cycle is coming to an end. Then the bleeding started up again while I was at work. This time accompanied by some tender pain. At first I thought it was AF, but it is now later in the day and I'm not 100% convinced it is my actual period. Time will tell I guess.
