I went to see my GP last night after a month of bleeding, pain and fatigue. I was diagosed with endo in may 2015 after years of pain and heavy bleeding. Endo removed - it was wrapped around my bowel and in patches everywhere and had the mirena coil fitted. After a few months I had the coil removed as it had a very bad effect on my moods and I gained weight. I suffered a terrible loss in December 2015, had a breakdown and am now taking antidepressants, anxiety tablets and sleeping pills daily. My GP last night told me very bluntly that I 'wasn't helping myself' and the only option left is the coil to go back in. I cannot risk a downturn in my already fragile mood and left the doctors in tears being told to 'go home and think about it - coil or pain'. They won't keep operating on me - which is not what I want anyway! I'm 30, divored with 2 little girls. I don't want any more children but cannot risk my body being affected by hormones which may push my mood even lower. Are there any alternatives?!
