I was diagnosed when I was 19 with endometriosis after I had suffered from 7 years of painful periods. I am now 31 have had 14 laparoscopies over 12 years they find it grow back every time and had excision surgery done in June. Since the surgery my already bad pain prior which normally relieves after an op has got worse. I have tried a mixture of nurofen plus, paracetamol & codeine but remain in pain for 14 days of every month. ( a week before my period and during) I'm now on ponstan forte which I took for 2 weeks and am still in agony. I have to take about 5 days off work every month and the endometriosis is ruining my life. I really want a child of my own so a hysterectomy or going on the pill isn't an option at this point. Can anyone recommend anything?
