Adhesions / Pregnancy

Hi all,

So my 26 year old girlfriend had a miscarriage in February this year at 5 weeks. She suffers from endometriosis and adhesions. She's now pregnant again and currently at 5 weeks. Shes always in pain and struggling to know what to do for her. Doctors obviously say it's the adhesions stretching (to be fair she's in less pain this time then she was earlier in the year at the same point. Good I hope). But feel very useless. Paracetamol doesn't touch the pain (as I'm sure many fellow sufferers can attest to). Just looking for any advice :-/

I don't know specifically about adhesions, but I have endometriosis, had was worried about the fact I had my normal pains for the first few weeks. My pain is always in my side and I was concerned that I wouldn't notice any the difference with pain associated with e.g. an ectopic pregnancy.

Pleased to say that I'm 7 weeks now, and been fine for over a week. This is my second time, so maybe less stretching needed for me, but hopefully it clears soon too.

So no real advice, but I don't think it's that unusual, unfortunately.
