**trigger warning we talk about pregnancy, adoption, & miscarriage. *** hysterectomy is not a cure for endo. Jana felt period before it started, but at 18 years old she knew something was off. She began to have pain all the time, and the pain became increasingly worse. At 19 years old she went to her first gynecologist appointment. She went on BC but she had plenty of side effects like anxiety from it for 5 years. She reflects back on symptoms, acne, constipation, painful sex, and more, now that she knows she had endo.
