Im new to this forum and im looking for advice.
I havent been diagnosed with endo yet but the gynaecologist thinks thats what the problem is. Im currently on Provera tablets which stop my periods all together, until recently they were really helping but in the last few weeks i have been in alot of pain despite taking them correctly.
Last time i had my appointment the gynaecologist was very eager to put me on hormone treatments which i wasnt keen on- she mentioned injections etc- they eventually settled with provera which i have to finish in about a month. I already suffer with mental health problems and i didnt want to risk messing with hormones affecting that.
Im 19, and they REALLY dont want to do a laparoscopy because of the risks, ive done alot of research and understand exactly whats involved in the operation, ive watched videos of an operation etc, but getting the docs to give me a laparoscopy is so hard! I dont think they understand how much it affects our lives! I used to be able to walk for miles and now Im in pain just doing a little bit around the block-but its seriously affecting my life.
I want a laparoscopy (I know it might not work) but the docs dont want to because of my age. Can anyone give me any advice what to do?
Im also extremely tired all the time- i have to nap after walking around the block etc- i dont know whether its related to endo or not.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
