I'm 35 and I've been living with endo for 15 years. I have 3 children and requested a hysterectomy 3 years ago. I wasn't refused one but they went through the pros and cons and instead I decided to have a mirena coil. The coil lasted about 9 months as I couldn't take the awful side effects I was suffering. Over the last year I've had health problems possibly related to my gallbladder but I asked my gynie if it could be endo related. He put me on zoladex injections for 3 months. I had the usual menopause type side effects but in general I felt amazing!! No pain or cramping and no complete exhaustion. I decided that I would go for a hysterectomy again but was refused point blank. I'm really struggling again. I don't want anymore kids and I'm at the end if my tether living with the everyday effects. Is there anything like the zoladex injections that can completely stop the endo but you can have regularly? Or is that asking for a miracle? I'm currently on overette contraceptive pill and the last consultant I saw is writing to my gp about 2 pills I can take will having a pill free week.
