Hi, I'm a 35 year old woman newbto this page who started to suffer from extremely heavy periods and pain going to the toilet after having the implanon implant removed (I don't know if this is connected, but still...) I was put on iron tablets as I was loosing so much blood every month it was making me anaemicand lose my hair.
After being sent for ultra scans, internals and X-rays my doctor mentioned to me very off- hand that she believes that I have endometriosis but I haven't had a laparoscopy to confirm this. I had a mirena coil inserted to help with my symptoms and it's certainly helped with the heavy bleeding but my pains are still coming every month and in fact seem to be getting worse. Having a wee is very painful for a few days a month and opening my bowels is so bad I have to use a laxative (so sorry for the graphic information!)
I'm feeling so sad and confused, I don't know if this is the best that it gets? Painkillers don't help me and my doctor was so dismissive- it seems that the coil was the answer. I'm starting to doubt if she was right, or even if I have endometriosis! I'm going to go back next week to see her but in the meantime I was hoping someone may have some advice for me?
So sorry for the long post 😞
