A couple of days ago i had my first laparoscopy after problems with pelvic pain and my bladder since i was 16 and being told by every Dr that i just had IBS for all these years. Finally a new GP sent me to a gynaecologist a year ago and after trying a couple different contraceptives (both of which caused horrible bleeding) they told me it was likely i would need an op to find out what was wrong.
After the lap the consultant came to have a chat and told me i had a few patches of Endometriosis on my Bladder, both Ovaries, the vagina and on my bowl. The patches are only small and she said they decided not to treat them at the time. But thats all i've been told. And i now have an 8 week wait till i can ask what that means for my fertility and what they want to do to 'treat it'. The Mirena Coil was briefly mentioned but i'm a bit worried because of how i reacted to other 'progesterone' based contraceptives and because of some of the horror stories i've heard about the coil. So i'm sitting here feeling very puffy and a bit bewildered to be honest. A lovely nurse gave me the web address for Endometriosis UK and this seemed like a good place to ask about other peoples experiences. I feel a bit silly reading other peoples experiences of it and then posting when i only have it mildly but i am feeling a bit alone with no one to talk to about it.
So really i'm just hoping for a bit of advice and i guess reassurance too
