After suffering from endo like symptoms for about 10 years and worsening symptoms for the past 6 months I finally had my appointment for the gynaecologist this morning and have been left incredibly confused.
I have been given 3 months of Cerazette and my gynaecologist has said that if this works and stops my symptoms that I have endometriosis. However if it doesn't then I will likely need to have a laparoscopy to investigate what is going on.
I am now 24 so she doesn't want to do the lap yet as I am not ready for children but did say once I make that decision I will need to come back and discuss my options.
I know no one is a doctor but I just trying to see if I am understanding this correctly. She is basically treating me for the condition so can I say that is what I have (been having problems with time off work so I almost want to tell them something so that they understand why I am feeling so unwell all the time).
Also obviously I am happy that I am starting to get some treatment but I am just processing this information and almost in shock.
Anyone got any tips as to how best to handle this? Any changes in diet or supplements that can work alongside the new treatment to lessen symptoms? How have other people got on with Cerazette?
Thank you all for your help
