I was put on the combined pill at about 25 after 3 laparoscopy's for endometriosis, I also have Adenomyosis which was visible on ultrasound as well as Interstitial Cystitis. The pill changed my life and stopped my periods being unbearably painful, and I was able to live a normal life again, having only 3 breaks a year to have a period, under the instructions of my gynaecologist.
My doctor today told me I must come off it due to the type of migraine I am now suffering and the high risk of stroke. I am really worried that I will end up in terrible agony again, I cannot emphasis how terrible my life was, and I could barely function, this was despite all the surgery.
Has anyone else had any experience of this, I am wondering whether after all this time has passed, I am now 38, whether things will have calmed down a bit? Or if I get the pain back whether there is a new medication I can go on as an alternative.
