Cerazette and pain

My pain is really up today and was also pretty horrendous yesterday. I've now been on cerazette for 5 months and so far although I've had a lot of bleeding, I've been able to manage my pain pretty well. TBH I was expecting a flare as I've been feeling awful for the past few days but it's just so miserable. Every medication they've given me has failed to give me more than a couple of months relief :/ and what with the weight gain, hair loss, bad skin, night sweats, and now this, it really seems like a waste of effort.

Totally hacked off with the whole situation.

Lots of hugs. If the pill hasn't worked after that long perhaps it's time to check out other options eg progesterone,mirena, GnrHs or push for a referral to a bsge for a diagnostic lap if you haven't already done so.


sadly I've already had a mirena, 5 months of decapeptyl, norethisterone and 2 surgeries this year. I am being seen at a bsge centre who put me on the cerazette to try and reduce my pain enough that I can cope at home while I wait for more surgery. I am booked for a hysterectomy at the end of march, just trying to keep going until then but none of the drugs have really worked :/


Hugs multiplied! So sorry to hear you're at the end of the line with it all. I guess the effect of repeat surgery can't be helping either by now. Any chance of a pain clinic referral to tide you over? x
