Hi all, in my 20s, had ongoing symptoms of: fatigue affecting everyday tasks and work, erratic heavy periods, light headedness, left sided heavy pelvic pain and tender, abdominal pain, pain on bleeding and intercourse, lower back and top of thigh pain. I have been on pill for over 5 years, cycle always been light, relatively pain free and regular until 6 months ago.
Blood tests, vaginal swabs, vaginal exam, ultrasounds - all normal
Gynae doctor reports probable endometriosis and now advised to take pill for 6 months with no break and monitor. If worsens or no changes, contraception alternatives to be tried or laparoscopy.
Anyone been in a similar situation? any advice?
