I was diagnosed with endo about 2 years ago, and ever since then it has just been the bane of my existence!!! I have never had the most pleasurable sex life, but it got to a point where it got worse and worse. Eventually went to see my gp only to find i have stage 4 endo and cysts on my ovaries. I have had 2 ops already and had a scan couple of months ago, only to find that the cysts have returned again (surprise, surprise). I have been trying and testing different pills as my gp said i need to stop my periods altogether, so i take pills back to back. Thing is none of them seem to stop my bleeding. I have tried microgynon, cilest and currently on yasmin but its always the same thing - blood free for about three weeks or so, then constant bleeding afterwards. i have been bleeding non-stop for about 6 weeks now on yasmin and im just frustrated coz i feel nothing seems to work; and i believe it's not helping with endo either since im ALWAYS bleeding. I have turned down so many potential relationships just coz i couldn't bear the thought of sex. The pain during sex i went through in the past has truly traumatised me, and i don't want that to be the case. I would like to be in a relationship sometime, but i just feel like i can't because of the pain i went through in the past. I just feel so isolated and frustrated; the fact that i can't have sex any more due to pain, the fact that im constantly bleeding (very unsexy and awkward), the fact that there seems to be no cure or solution for my problem, is beginning to take a toll on me, and i can feel myself going down this slippery slope of depression and that's getting me very scared.
Please if anyone has any suggestions with regards reducing pains during sex and an explanation as to why i keep on bleeding through my pills would be greatly appreciated
