Hello! Three weeks ago I had a Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy where endometriosis was discovered, treated and the coil fitted. I have been recovering well until today when I have had the joy of experiencing my first period post-surgery and oh my goodness it is utterly horrendous. I am experiencing what can only be described as being relentlessly stabbed in the back, pelvis and...vagina!! I have suffered with very painful periods for a long time due to the endometriosis and didn't expect that it could get much worse but I was oh so very wrong. On the bright side, I am not experiencing any bleeding which my GP has assured me is normal due to the coil. Although I am sure that this pain is very normal and natural to be experiencing- after all I have had my insides poked and prodded, I am desperately looking to be reassured by someone who has been through this and would welcome with open arms any tips or tricks you might have at easing the pain. Also please, someone, tell me it gets better!
