Hi I'm a 30 year old mother of 1.
When I was younger I had severely heavy, painful periods and would have to take 2 days a month off school. I was then put on a pill which made things easier. I suffered a migraine with aura and because I have a heart condition, the doctors said my stroke risk was too great and therefore I was no longer allowed oral contraception.
Since then I've been on the depo provera, which I do not bleed on at all! It's magical! However the dull ache remained. I fell pregnant and had a beautiful baby girl but since having her 2 years ago the pain has become unbearable.
I was diagnosed with moderate endometriosis back in Feb this year. I had a Laparoscopy and they lasered what was there. It was mainly in my pouch of douglas (yes I did roar with laughter when my consultant explained) and my left ovarian fossa (space around my left ovary).
At my follow up it was suggested that I had a coil fitted as this would ease the symptoms of the endometriosis. I did and my body rejected it. I went back on the injection but since Feb the pain is getting worse, it's like a constant period ache and I feel like any second I'm going to pour with blood! I am on zapain (30/500mg codeine/paracetamol) for pain relief.
I'm really looking to see if anyone is in a similar boat? Still in pain even though I had laser surgery only 4 months ago. Could it be they missed some, does it return that quick? Also what are peoples feelings re: pain relief because the zapain just isn't cutting it!
Sorry for the long winded story just thought it would be easier with the facts x
