... I meant to include this in the last discussion.

I take the pill four months straight without a break, to treat endometriosis. I've noticed that after I orgasm (masturbation) I start to bleed. No penetration is involved, but anywhere from 15 minutes to over an hour later I'll get spotting. Do you know if this has something to do with endometriosis? I don't know if it only happens when I'm almost at the end of 4 months of pills so I can't tell if it's because the uterine lining is really built up. I don't feel any pain, but it's happened, without fail, everytime I've orgasmed for the past month and it's happened frequently before (I just don't know what month of pills I was on).

I can't mentions this to a doctor.

I'm not certain this has anything to do with endometriosis, but it could; orgasm generally involves rhythmic contractions of your uterus, and it's been theorized that this could help move stuff out of there (as during your period).

However, it is important that you mention this to your doctor, as we can't examine you and make sure there isn't something potentially serious going on here. It's important that the doctor treating your endo knows what's going on with you, and that involves stuff like this.

It's just part of being responsible for your health.
