Hi, I haven't introduced myself properly yet, so apologies for this post! I've had endometriosis for 22 years, 2 births, 2 laparoscopies. I'm currently on cerazette so that I don't have a period. Generally this has been working and yes I probably get a few pains relating to endo but I haven't been have periods for at least 3-4 years now.
My endocrinologist put me on estrogen (1mg) last Jan as my levels were extremely low (probably due to hypothalmic suppression). At my review this Jan the dosage was upped to 2mg per day. It may be a coincidence but i have had 3 bleeds since!
Today I have been unable to make it into work due to excrutiating period like cramps - shooting right up into my shoulder blades and right down both legs. There is no period as such but it is dark pink when i wipe.
I think it is most unusual to be put on estrogen when you have endo so I'm just wondering if anyone else here has been in a similar situation?
I have endometriosis, hashimotos and hyperparathyroidism.
thanks in advance,
