can endometriosis come back after giving birth

can endometriosis come back after giving birth. I was diagonsed with Endo at 18 though I had it since I was 16. I had a DNC and a laposcopy done at 18 and they wanted to do a hysto but I said no. I have had MANY flare ups and was on lots of meds since then. Thankfully in 2005 I had my first son, and on 12/26/06 had our second. In the last month I have been experiencing mild to moderate pains again, same as before. Even to the point that my back and vagina hurt at times. I don't hurt during intercourse but I do afterwards. I am going to call my OB but I just wanted to

Re: can endometriosis come back after giving birth

Contrary to popular belief endometreosis never goes away. It is caused by too much estrogen in the system. When you are pregnant the growth stops because the hormone is lacking. But after you give birth the hormone comes back and the growth can start again. Now some women do experience hormone changes after pregnancy but the likelyhood of that happening to a person with endo is very slim. I have had endo since I was 18 and am now 25. I have had 3 surgeries for it and was put on treatments that backfired on me and made it worse. So now I just live with it and have surgery as needed if I am in horrible pain (i.e. can walk, move, or barely breath). I hope this has been helpful.
