I was on the depo provera for 10 years (18 - 28) in order to help control my systems of Endometriosis. My doctor took me off of it at the beginning of this year, as my bone density was very low and suggested that I have the coil inserted. This is something I did not want to go ahead with however, she was very persistent. I have found my systems have become worse, with more pain more often, pain during and after sex (and after masturbation) effecting our sex life greatly, bloating 24/7 and bleeding from the bowel. My doctor advised that the coil is still 'settling' and should settle within a year. I withdraw from being touched 'down there', and tense up whenever my other half does and during examinations. I have had two laparoscopy's, the first to diagnose the condition and the second treat the condition. Does anyone have any experience with the coil or any other potential 'remedies'. In 11 years I have never met or spoken with anyone else who has Endometriosis, and this is my first time on a forum, so any kind advice would be most appreciated.
