The last few years I've been on either the pill (microgynon) or had the mirena coil to suppress my endo symptoms.
Last month I came off it completely to start trying for a baby, and the pain has come back very quickly - intense pain on the left side of my pelvis, awful alternating diarrhoea & constipation, ridiculous tiredness, and the 'poker up the bum' sensation in particular.
Does anyone have any experience of the best way to deal with pain and symptoms while trying for a baby? My doctor has just advised ibuprofen, which doesn't even touch the pain! I'm also on a dairy-free, low-fibre diet.
I'm just struggling to get through the work day at the moment.
