Hi ladies new to the site I have had endometriosis for 6 years now after months in hospital and 4x laparoscopy procedures discovering endometriosis on the 4th procedure.
I have since been in agony ever since I have tried all contraceptions none of which have made a difference despite being only 21 when diagnosed and since having 2 more babies both who came very early even though the docs said it wouldn't effect my pregnancys jack arrived 9/8/11 10 weeks early with no reason or cause to do so. I then a year after having jack went back to see my consultant as the pain was just awful again constant bleeding and feeling very low, they then said about starting hormone therapy to bring on an artificial menopause, then They said go straight for the hysterectomy. They said the chances of conceiving we're extremely low however just before I was due to have the op I found out I was 2 weeks preg. The doctors midwives were not worried about my pregnancy as my first son was full term no probs (but he was born before I had endometriosis) Low and behold I had cysts on my overies throughout the pregnancy and then at 25 weeks started having problems my daughter was born after emergency c section at 29 weeks on the 4/4/13. Yet again no one could tell us why. I have said from day one I always thought the endometriosis was the problem but never had this confirmed.
Anyway I have been non stop bleeding heavly for 14 weeks now my daughter is 15 weeks tomorrow. The pains are all back and I just feel terrible and very down.
I have found that it has affected our sex life a huge amount also as I find it very painful in certain places. I am now 26 1/2 and after everything I am now going to push to have the hysterectomy both me and my fiancé have discussed this in depth and we have 3 children together the last 2 being very awful traumatic experiences. Is there anyone else who has had the hysterectomy this young? How did you find it affected you ie hormones moods sex drive etc? Any answers help would be really appreciated.
Thanks Lisa xxx
