I'm sat here at 4am, having been woken up by excruciating period pain, with a hot water bottle, pain killers and am trying not to burst into tears.
I had a lap last year, with lots of endo found and removed. Symptoms came back and I was told I had micro endometriosis and was put on cerazette to help with symptoms (can't be on other pills due to breast cancer risk in my family).
It's played havoc with my body, with periods every few days and the most horrendous pains. I had to take time off work for the first time as I couldn't stand up with endometriosis pain.
I went back to the GP to discuss it and while they were sympathetic, they said it takes a while for the pill to settle down. I'm now on cerelle, and finding myself here at 4am in pain on my third time of bleeding in the past month.
Has anyone been on these pills and had this problem? Did it settle down after a while? I'm on my fourth month now...
Also, does anyone have any pain management tips? It'd be nice not to wake up in agony.
