Hi all, I'm 29 and have JUST been diagnosed with endo after 18 years of periods etc... Was never that bad really before my second daughter was born 7 months ago, as I was on the combined pill from 15 until 19, then had my first, then back on combined, then depo, then Cerelle, before coming off to have my second. 21 days after the birth I went back on the Cerelle and it's just been horrific since! I had an ultrasound in October and honestly thought I was going to be told really bad news, as she hovered over my left side for AGES, but it came back clear! Anyway, doc referred me to a gynae, who I saw today, and she said straight away she thought it was endo and strongly recommended the Mirena. Never had the coil before but... Crickey... Felt like I was in labour again! Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience and how they found having the Mirena after a progesterone only pill? I think hearing other people's stories will help, as it's kinda got me a bit down in the dumps about it all. I was more than willing to have it all just taken away! Please tell me it helps ease the pain!
PS, does anyone suffer from an aching under their arm / in their boob at that time?! Told the gynae and doc and neither seemed concerned, saying it's probably just hormones?! No lumps or anything?!
Thanks ladies xxx
