I have always had problems with my periods since I started at 13 yrs old. I am now 52yrs old and we did not manage to have children. 12 years ago I had the mirena coil fitted because I was having heavy periods and they found a fibroid. I have had 4 coils fitted since then. 18 months ago I started with heavy bleeding again. I was sent for a scan and they found multiple fibroids. After going to see the gynaecologist I went into hopital November 2016 for any hysterectomy. When I came round from the operation they had not completed the hysterectomy because they found stage 4 endometriosis round my bowel. I have now been sent to middlesborough to a specialist centre. My appointment is not until end of May. I am now having periods every three weeks and in pain/discomfort most of the time. I am very tired all the time as well. Can anyone recommend what I can take to get me through the next few months. Would the pill help???
