After suffering with really painful periods since I was 17 I was diagnosed less than 2 months ago with endometriosis (I am now 28). Taking contraception pills during all those years masked some of the endometriosis symptoms.
Before I was aware I all this story I stopped my pills 6 months ago as even though I tried different brands they have all caused the same effect: no libido at all. During this time a 10 cm ovarian cyst was detected and afterwards the endometriosis with my bowels stuck.
The surgeon has explained that I should try to have children asap and even though I love the idea, we (my husband and I) need a little bit of more time to be able to bring a child to this world.
It's my understanding that I should try to use contraception that will delay my periods, e.g. coil, pills for 3 months no break, etc. But all of these are based in the same hormones and to be quite honest I have wasted like 7 years of my life looking for the "right pill" (as before I didn't notice that the pill was causing the low libido). Here in the UK I have tried Femodenne, Zelleta and other one that I don't remember the name unsuccessfully. Back in my country I had Minesse, but I was told that in the UK there is no such low contraception pill as that one :-(. Bringing it from my country is almost impossible as people living there don't find contraception pills.
I am really fed up to be quite honest. I have read some posts in this community and I comprehend how some people feel even though it can be difficult for everyone else. Do you have any recommendation in particular for my case? I have looked online about contraception with lower risk of producing a lower libido but no success :-(.
