Hi i'm new here and I'm being investigated for suspected endo. I've always had heavy periods but after the birth of my son 5 years ago they became gradually worse with lots of pelvic pain on the right hand side. I had a high ca125 level of 35 so they did an emergency ultrasound both transv and normal. Everything was clear and a later blood test showed my ca125 level had gone down to 18. I've been on the waiting list for mirena for nearly a year and in the meantime I've been put on cerelle pop pill. This has stopped my periods but not the right sided pain which I have nearly everyday. My gp referred me to a gynaecologist to do a lap but they refused as they said there was no evidence of any endometroma on the ultrasound. In the letter it suggests I trial mirena for 3 months before they will consider a referral. Should I get a second opinion? I'm in so much pain and can hardly function.
