About

RisasPieces is for sharing my experiences living life with pelvic/vulval-vaginal pain, and disseminating general pelvic/vulval-vaginal health information. Female, male, in between, both, neither, however you identify your pain and experiences are all valid and all are welcome here!**

**Excision surgery is considered to be the gold standard of care in the treatment of endometriosis. Please read up on the Endopaedia and/or join Endometropolis on Facebook to locate the nearest excision surgeon to you, and to learn more about what Endometriosis is, its likely origin, and why excision is the current best treatment. Please also take a moment to read this excellent article (and others!) about Endometriosis by the Vital Health Endometriosis Center** Looking for a more natural approach? Check out Lara Briden ND 

A little about me: I hold a B.S. in Human Development and Family Science/Human Services that I have yet to use in the “real world.” I am managing the effects of having had endometriosis, in addition to current Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Vestibulodynia/Vulvodynia, IBS, and Interstitial Cystitis. I had a Hysterectomy in 2018 for Adenomyosis as well as a unilateral oopherectomy (removal of left ovary due to complications from scar tissue and endometrioma 2018), bilateral salpingectomy, presacral neurectomy, and excision of endometriosis.  I considered myself totally endometriosis free after my first excision 4+ years ago, until the discovery of the endometrioma which claimed my left ovary. I once again consider myself endometriosis free, however despite being disease free I do still experience some pain from having had it. I am childless and may also write about it from time to time. In other words I’m just a person with life experience and some research skills.

  1. Hi, I just came across your blog. I run a blog about bladder conditions, IC mostly but anything really. I’ve been looking for someone who might be able to write an article on Sex and IC (or other bladder issues – I know it’s not the same as Endo) – I know it’s a big issue for a lot of women but I don’t feel like I have the answers myself. I was wondering if you might have some knowledge on this you might be able to share? Please let me know what you think – you can check out the blog at bladder-help.com. Thanks, Layla

    1. Hi Layla!,
      I apologize that it has taken me a few days to see this! I was diagnosed officially with IC about 8 months ago after suffering with it for quite a few years now. I’d be happy to offer any tid bits of information I’ve learned in regard to sex and IC. I will hop on over to your blog and see if I can locate an email for you so we can talk more.
