My Endo has gradually got worse and worse over the last 3 years. I used to be ill for maximum 3 days at a time and now I'm basically always in some kind of pain, not to mention horrible hormonal headaches! I've been on Cerazette for a good 18 months now and it just isn't doing anything; I get bleed throughs most months and even when I don't I'm still in pain. No drugs seem to work, despite being on a concoction of Dihydrocodeine, Paracetamol, and Ibuprofen (Unfortunately I'm on Prozac so I can't take stronger NSAIDs). This means I sometimes have to miss Uni and catch up on lectures and get continuous extensions on work because I'm just in too much pain and on too many drugs to be able to function. I am worried I'm going to have to drop out of Uni.
Secondly, sex has always hurt for me, which at the start when I was 16 I put down to being new to it and I didn't put it down to endo the first few times, but 2 years down the line and I'm still hurting I realised something wasn't right. I've had all the tests and all is clear, but still pain, so it has to be the endo! I've also started bleeding for a couple days after sex, and then it goes away again, obviously not good! Not to mention it's only getting more painful for me. This isn't great, not just for me but for my partner too because he doesn't want to hurt me and I can't help saying ouch every time, so it's putting some strain between us. I feel so guilty for not being able to do what he wants without having to stop him because I'm in too much pain because of this stupid disease!
Basically what I'm getting at is what do you ladies do if sex is so painful you can barely stand it?
And also, I don't really want the Mirena coil, so I'm looking into the Depo Provera injection, has anyone had any experiences with this? Good or Bad? Any advice at all is appreciated!
