Hi, newbie here, I've had awful pains with my periods, bleeding so heavy there was a point when I couldn't stay conscious due to blood loss, etc, and I've been persistently going to the doctor and trying to get it sorted. Ive been on several versions of the pill and the implant as well, none have worked for me. After 6 years of trying to get an answer, they now believe it's endometriosis, but have said that tgey didn't want to give me the laparoscopy unless absolutely necessary, and put me on Cilest (their reason was I have an active, physical job but only work part time so no SSP and 3 weeks off work would be kinda bad). Problem is I've been on it 5 months now and just keep bleeding, all old blood till I do a withdrawal week. I've just come off one of those weeks, and my pain has gone from acute (only at time of the month) to chronic, and I don't think I can deal with this right now. My parents have said they will pay for me to have surgery privately if needs be, but I just wondered if anyone else has been in a similar situation? I just feel really overwhelmed, sorry for the ramble xx
