Re: Endometrial Cells on Pap, freaking out!

So sorry for all the stressful experiences you have gone through, your story sounds quite familiar in certain parts. I too developed super high blood pressure during my pregnancy, which ended up being very difficult to treat, but I have finally got into great control. I encourage you to stick with your doctors plan to get your BP under control as quickly and carefully as possible, and stay with that care without fail. I did not do that, and ended up having strokes years later from the uncontrollable BP. You can avoid that by keeping your BP in control.

Please dont let the idea of the test scare you. The anticipation is always WAY worse than the actual procedure. Piece of cake, just get it done and get on with your treatment, what ever it turns out to be. We really are lucky to have all the technology on our side, and have it way easier that our mothers and grandmothers.

I have been living with endometriosis for about 15 years now, but have finally gotten to the verge of menopause, and things have really settled down a lot. There was a point I was seeing a pain specialist to control my pain, but I was inoperable due to the strokes, and the kidney failure that came with them. None of this is to say your experience will be like mine, in fact you can keep yourself safe from all this just by keeping that BP in good shape.

Wishing you the best!
