Just a bit of background info first, I'm 21 and have suffered with gynae problems since being 15. First with the diagnosis of pelvic congestion syndrome at 17 (after my first lap), to finally being diagnosed with endometriosis at 20 (after my second lap).
I have tried every contraceptive pill, the depo injection, the mirena coil (5 times) and had one lap to remove the endo and adhesions. Each only giving me some relief for a short period of time. I decided to go hormone free for a while to see how my body worked on its own (because it had been so long). Now I have stopped having periods so I am currently undergoing tests for PCOS.
Due to my pain increasing the past few weeks my consultant is very persistent on me having the GnRH injections (zoladex), but I am very skeptical. I am a student nurse and having time off is really difficult.
Can anyone offer me any advice on the injections or any pain relief that works for them?
Many thanks in advance.
