Has it returned?


I had a lap done in march to remove 3 cysts, one of which was 8cm. Since then I have been put on the mini pill (cerrelle). This resulted in no periods which was brilliant as this was when I was in most pain. Since march I have had no pain or symptoms, until the last two weeks. I have not had the extreme pain that I used to get with my periods but have had a real dull ache in the same area. Theres a part of me thinking im paranoid. What symptoms did people get when not having periods?

I'm also on Cerelle, have been since June 2012. At first it was brilliant as no periods. But I still got pelvic pain and could not understand why. When I went for a transvaginal scan it showed adhesions. Maybe this is what happened to you too? I don't think you're paranoid. You know when you have pelvic pain. Also endo means reverse menstruation so you may still be bleeding a little but it's going backwards. I've had 3 Laps since 2012 and even though I'm on Cerelle they have always found a bit of endo lurking there when they cut me open. Go back to your gp and get a scan. You're not mad you know your body and know something's wrong. Good luck my love xxxx N xxxx
