Can you share your experience?

I am a 23 yo, and been diagnosed with endometriosis at the age of 15. I have not had a period since then, as I have been on contraceptives non-stop. About 2 years ago i had the Mirena IUD inserted, but I had it removed a month and a half ago.

So, I went on to the Mycrogynon contraceptive pill, and the gynecologist advised me to have a bleed in between packs at least once. So, i finished the pack and I didn't bleed. Took a Tesco pregnancy test - negative.

Me and my partner are reasonably active in that sense, so I am not sure what to think. Shall I wait and take another test, or is it just post-Mirena bleed withdrawal?

Also, might be worth mentioning that in the recent ultrasound scan they found that my left ovary is now stuck behind the uterus. Anyone with a similar condition?

I would really love a baby, so the "happy little accident" would certainly be welcome.
