I know this has been mentioned before, so - sorry to repeat previous posts.
I am on a waiting list for a lap due to a lump that has grown and grown over the last 3-4 years on my belly button, in fact there are 2 if not 3 lumps there now, which are devilishly tender during my period and ovulation. I am 47 and have very regular periods - most regular they have ever been. One of the lumps is dark like a bruise and feels like it could bleed.
Anyhoo, been thinking about things and am wondering if this was all triggered by my last baby's C-section (my only C-sect) 10 years ago. I have read on here about endo starting from surgery sites, etc... I have not had any incisions in or around my belly button, however. I would say it has been the last 8-9 years that my libido has decreased and decreased and my lumps have grown and grown. I feel really tired all the time - so Drs think its thyroid and just test for TSH - which is normal. All my bloods are always normal!! You almost want them not to be....just to get an answer.
So I mentioned it to my GP and he put me forward to mental health to help with libido, that was a bit of shock when the letter came through, I can tell you! But I am not depressed or stressed. So the mental health person said to speak to GP again.
So, I have been reading about it possibly being hormone related and how in the past testosterone treatments for women have been risky and not worked either, so I am left feeling - will my relationship last - how long will he last without sex - is it fair to still be married to him - should we split?
Soooo, what I am wondering is, if my lap shows endo and it's removed will I suddenly see some light at the end of the tunnel?? Will my libido be back - has anyone found this to happen?
I have found in the past when on the pill or coil (mirena) it reduced my libido too, so not keen on going on any hormones really.
Help - Viagra for ladies please???
Thanks for reading
