I'm 21 at have been told I have enodmetriosis by my GP. I then saw a specialist who informed me to adopt a healthier lifestyle (I don't smoke/drink and eat healthy and exercise regularly) to control the condition. I was also advised to stay on the pill that is taken everyday without a break to stop any bleeding. The idea was that if I wasn't bleeding then the lining couldn't build up. This was a year ago. Since then I have started bleeding more regularly, however the blood is often brown and thick rather than red. This is incredibly worrying and is scaring me. I have also got horrendous acne which is located along my jaw and chin which is directly related to hormonal problems and inbalance. I really don't know what to do. My specialist said not to worry until I actually come to wanting children, but it doesn't feel like the 'treatment' is really doing anything. This is affecting my professional and personal life. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
