Ok, so a year and a half ago I was admitted to a&e with severe abdominal pains, aged 39. Turned out I had stage four endo. I had never heard of it before (though of course like so many of us had gone through half a lifetime of terrible period pains) so I bought all the books and swotted up. I had an op, and then, stupidly threw all the books out thinking "that's it, I'm cured". Went through a terrible year of trying to conceive, only to be told that my chances, even with ivf, are very slim. I came to terms with ALL that and set about getting on with the rest of my life. And now it's back. For the past six months or so my sleep has been terrible. It seems that two weeks out of four I just can't sleep and there is no logical reason for it so it must be my hormones. The pain is back, worse than ever. I have a high powered, stressful job that i can ordinarily do with my eyes closed. Now I'm thinking of handing my notice in. I'm going to my gp tomorrow. Historically he has been rubbish with all of this. I want a bloody hysterectomy tbh but think I'm perhaps being over dramatic. The question, then, is what pill should I ask for? Which one works the best?!
