After years of having my symptoms ignored (like almost all of you I imagine) I finally had a laparoscopy in September and was dispagnosed with endometriosis. Then had a few months getting my head around this and in January the impossible happened and I fell pregnant with my first baby which is amazing.
Due date is in two weeks and am now thinking about how I manage symptoms after she gets here. I know doctors will say all will magically be ok once I've given birth but I know that this is not always the case and I was after some advice.
During my many years of bring fobbed off I must have tried every pill on the market, all of which made thing better for a few months but then eventually I was always back with the pain, nausea, headaches and mood all over the place. I also tried the IUD fora year which turned off my periods - along with everything else. I ended up on HRT as my hormones were messed up and then antidepressants for two years. This then led to more than two years of no contraception at all but no baby until the lap.
So clearly I'm a bit scared about what to do next! Will a different contraceptive help? What can I do for pain? Will breast feeding help?
Any thoughts extremely gratefully received xxx
