DISCUSS STRUGGLING TO MANAGE MODERATE TO SEVERE ENDOMETRIOSIS PAIN

Individual results may vary.

SARAH:

 

There’s so many different types of pain that come with endometriosis, like it’s not just like a specific like stabbing or a…or a uh…

MEGHAN:

 

It’s, it feels like the pinching of like somebody like pulling your insides.

GILLIAN:

 

Yeah. I know that feeling.

SARAH:

 

Yeah.

GILLIAN:

 

I always go for a rake analogy, like a rake just down the front of my uterus.

SARAH:

 

Okay! *heavy sigh*

GILLIAN:

 

Yeah, and nothing makes it better for me.

MEGHAN:

 

Yeah.

GILLIAN:

When it doesn’t help…then it’s like okay back to square one, what do we do now?

 

MEGHAN:

 

Yeah! I get told daily, “You know, why don’t you have surgery?”

GILLIAN:

 

Right, it’s still seen as such a cure-all. Like, “Oh, have a surgery!”

SARAH:

 

Even like a full hysterectomy, I understand that will not cure it.

MEGHAN:

 

Yeah.

GILLIAN:

 

I’m in pain all the time…like it’s not even something you measure anymore.

SARAH:

 

Yeah.

GILLIAN:

 

You just hurt.

SARAH:

 

You just know that you’re gonna hurt.

MEGHAN:

 

Yeah. Definitely.

GILLIAN:

So I talked to my gynecologist about trying ORILISSA.

MEGHAN:

 

My gynecologist had called me… “Meghan, there’s something really exciting I have to tell you, you’ve been saying that you need some relief.”

GILLIAN:

 

That’s awesome!

MEGHAN:

 

He’s like, “I’m not making you any promises, but a lot of women have felt, felt relief from this.” And then I went in to see him and he told me what it was. And I said, “Okay put me on it, write the prescription, let’s go.”

 

SARAH:

 

ORILISSA…it is not an injection, it is not a birth control, it is not surgery.

GILLIAN:

 

Yeah.

MEGHAN:

 

It’s a daily pill…so it’s not like it stays in your system for months on end, um and you can always talk to your gynecologist about going off of it.

SARAH:

 

I have had less pain during my period and less cramping in between periods as well. Especially when I hit the third month, I really noticed a change.

GILLIAN:

 

For me, taking ORILISSA was definitely the right decision.

MEGHAN:

 

Yeah, me too.

SARAH:

If you could go back and tell yourself something about endometriosis, what would you say, what would you tell yourself?

 

MEGHAN: 

 

I would say to not put off talking to the doctor because of the things you read on the internet. To talk to your doctor about all the risks and benefits of taking ORILISSA and all the facts. And for me personally, ORILISSA was the right decision because it did reduce my endometriosis pain.

ASK YOUR GYNECOLOGIST IF ORILISSA COULD BE RIGHT FOR YOU.
