I've been suffering from excruciating period pain since I was 12 (I'm now 21), I've been on various different contraceptives but after being rushed into hospital with a ruptured ovarian cyst in April last year my periods have got so much worse! I've got in with a gynae consultant at the hospital who thinks it's endometriosis, and after an ultrasound confirmed that I have a retroverted uterus and a uterine septum. She's booked me in for a laprascopy and a hysteroscopy to remove the septum. I've decided to have the mirena coil fitted while I'm order to see if that helps with my period pain (Currently on cerezette) as the pain is ridiculous, I've been bleeding for 3 weeks now (with about 10 days break) and the pains awful! My lap/hysteroscopy is 1st March but at least I finally have a date! Has anyone else had a mirena fitted with a retroverted uterus! I'll be under while they do it but it's the removal that worries me! And has anyone had a septum removed, did it help with bleeding/pain? Xxx
