In the Name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
I pray this message finds you in better health and iman.
Unfortunately, black magic is very real and it sounds as if this person may have tried to perform some type of magic against you.
Alhamdulillah, there are ways to deal with this sort of thing. The best thing you can do is seek Allah's protection from shaitan.
Ask Allah's forgiveness for your sins. Recite the Qur'an often, especially the powerful Refuging Verses in the last two surahs. And be constant in your remembrance of Allah.
Please refer to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawthari's article, "Protection from Black Magic."
If this person is still harassing you, why don't you block her email address? Don't let her think that she has any control over your life, because she really doesn't. She can make all the bad duas she wants; only Allah Most High is in control of your affairs. Ask Allah to give you the best of this world and the best of the hereafter and to save you from the punishment of the fire.
It really sounds like you're dealing with some jealousy issues here. If that's the case, seek refuge in Allah from this person's envy and move on with your life.
Don't think for a moment that your endometriosis is related to this person's actions. Many women suffer from endometriosis, but alhamdulillah, there are ways to cope with this condition and lead a fulfilling life.
For more information on endometriosis, please visit www.endometriosis.org.
Finally, you mentioned a problem with masturbation. Since you are married, you definitely want to look into this issue. Masturbation is harmful, especially in a marriage, because it is the husband's duty to satisfy his wife, and vice versa. If you feel that you are not being sexually satisfied, then you need to discuss this with your husband in an open, loving manner. Resorting to masturbation will only cause you more frustration in the long run.
Last but not least, please try to consult a local scholar for more assistance.
And Allah knows best.
