I'm 22 and about a week ago, I had an exploratory surgery to confirm my endometriosis diagnosis. While they were in surgery, my doctor removed a patch of endometriosis, but said that the remaining endo was microscopic, and therefore could not be removed surgically. My doctor is pushing for me to start a menopause inducing drug, but I am extremely skeptical. Not only am I concerned about the side affects, but I'm also confused about the steps post drug treatment. After doing my own research, I've read about both good and bad experiences with these types of drug treatments, but it seems that these treatments are only a temporary fix and that after 6 months of treatment, I'll need to stop taking it.
My question is this: have you been put on a menopause inducing drug to help fight your endo? If so, what was your experience with it? What did your doctor recommend after your time on the drug?
I'd really appreciate any information you can give me. I'm worried about the decisions I need to make concerning this disease, especially being so young.
