im new here as came across this whilst browsing online for some sort of support group for endo. So nice to meet you all..
I've been told by my GP that I might have endo last year, and had my first laparoscopy in April this year to confirm it. Unfortunately my Gyne couldnt remove the endo tissues as they found out i have a more severe case of it, and he said it was out of his hands to remove them, and will need a bigger operation if i want to remove it.
I've been given the mini pill after the keyhole surgery, to see if it would help my pains, and so far it seems to work. (I was on the combined pill before surgery for around 5 years, which did not help with the pains or symptoms at all) I've been on the mini pill for just under 2 months now, and i've not had any bad pains like i had before, but still got problems with having to go to the toilet frequently to pass stools... However this i can manage as its not painful bowel movements like it was before.
I just want to ask has anyone else had a similar experience? Like being on the mini pill helped them with the condition? What if i want to start trying for a baby? When should i stop taking the mini pill? (doc has confirmed that the condition i have is going to be hard for me to conceive naturally). Also is there any side effects to taking the mini pill for a long period?
