I have just this week been diagnosed with Endometriosis. My symptoms appeared when I came off the Pill at the beginning of 2013 (as I thought they were the cause!). After seeing a consultant for my bowels, which they thought the cause of the pain was, I finally now have been diagnosed with Endo.
He told me that I will need to be referred to a gyno but that I should also go to my GP to have a monthly injection that will bring on a fake menopause. I am a bit concerned about the side affects with these. Would it not be better to go back on the pill but not to have a break so that I don't have a period for a few months so that things 'calm down'?
Does anyone take the pill as a form of treatment for Endo?
Any help would be appreciated!
