Hi ladies, first time poster, long time sufferer here!
I was diagnosed about 14yrs ago and had diathermy and controlled with hormones until I was ready to have my children. Thankfully I now have two children and I'm done. I felt a lot better in my moods etc when off the pill and trying to conceive so decided to have my tubes tied 18 months ago and steer clear of synthetic hormones. It makes me a lot easier to live with 😂 but I've now been referred back to gynae with near constant bleeding and pain. I asked this morning about ablation but was told that the pain would likely continue as my ovaries would still be active so was given the option of prostap injections, which will give us more insight into the cause, to make sure the problem is endo and rule out the unlikely possibility of another cause. So I'm left with a choice of stopping the bleeding but living with some pain, or stopping both pain and bleeding, but coping with a whole new set of symptoms like hot flushes and mood swings.
So I was just wondering if anyone else has been in a similar position? My initial thoughts are to start the injections as the effects are temporary, (although the option further down this route is to discuss hysterectomy) and see how I get on. Any experience of either treatment would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Zoe. X
