Well I am one of the luckier ones in that my dr and gyno have taken me seriously quickly. I had a lap in December 2012 just 7 months after getting married and my copper coil was replaced with the mirena. While I still get some pain the main issue is bleeding for aprox 3 weeks at a time. Neither my husband or I want children so I am currently booked in on 5 June for the removal of my womb lining using a heated ball. I didn't ask at the time but I am not sure how this will help the endo outside the womb. Does anyone have any ideas?
