Hi just got back from first appointment with gyn after being referred a few weeks ago by my GP.
I was dredging it. I was scared of the exam (due to pain) and being weighted as i am currently really overweight.
Well it was fine! I didn't have an exam (yet) we talked about my symptoms an she does think it could be endo but also may be a bowel issue. I do have IBS.
I'm having an ultrasound next week and then we will book my lap next week. He says we are looking at the end of May.
I wasn't weighted. Which was a huge relief. My BMI is currently just over 40 so I was terrified he'd say we can't do anything for you, your too fat. He didn't bring up my weight but I did. I told him I would lose as much weight as possible in the mean time which I will.
He asked what I wanted to do to control the bleeding. I told him the bleedings not my main concern it's not pleasesent but I can live with it. The pain is my main focus.
He recommended I get a Merena coil fitted when I have the lap. I've been reading about it but I'm not convinced :-S. Any recommendations?
I'm 28 and have to children I do plan on trying in the next few years. I am married to a women and we will be trying to conceive by IVF or IUI in a clinic. Does the merenda effect chance of conceiving?
Any advice would be greatly received
