I'm 33 married with three children. As a late teenager I started suffering with heavy periods, terrible pmt, migraines and pain. My GP at the time told me it was normal and prescribed evening primrose oil capsules. Forward on about twenty years and I decided that I'd like to lose weight + get healthier. So I started on the Couch to 5K programme but towards the end of it I started to get pain close to my caesarean scar so went to get checked out by the GP who decided I had a hernia. Had an operation for said hernia, no hernia found but a lump was removed. On Wednesday I discovered that the lump was endometriosis.
I have now been to the GP who suspects I probably have endometriosis elsewhere and has put me on the pill (I don't need contraception as hubby has had a vasectomy) to see how I go for 3 months. The other options was a balloon in the uterus to remove lining (?) or a hysterectomy. Not sure what is the best option for me. I want my terrible periods to be reduced, as soon as I wake up in the morning there's blood all over me and it runs down my legs as soon as I stand up. There are huge clots, pelvic pain, breast pain and I retain a lot of water.
Hope to hear from others.
