Hi, I've been having horrendous problems for the last few months and endometriosis has been mentioned as a possible cause. My periods were very heavy and uncomfortable with spotting in between up until last Christmas. Over Christmas / new year I was put on norethisterone to stop me bleeding. This sent my hormones wild and when I stopped taking it the pain was unbelievable. My periods continued to be irregular so I was put cerazette which caused me to bleed for a month. My periods every other month are so painful I am blacking out and being sick. I was sent for a scan which revealed the lining if my womb was thickened and I had an ovarian cyst and fibroids. Gynae attempted an endometrial biopsy but my cervix was impassable and after 4 attempts gave up. My next period the following week was so bad I ended up in A&E. I am now awaiting a date to go in for the biopsy, a camera insertion and they wish to insert a coil. This month the pain is awful again and I'm so bloated. I've been sick again and everything is blacking out but I also can't see properly which scares me! My bleeding no longer comes heavily either. Anyone else having similar???
