After a short period away from this page, I'm back as I feel I have no where else to turn.
So briefly my story is - I've been back and forward to GP and seen a consultant in the hospital and they said they think i have endo (no lap done as they wanted to try the coil first) so try the coil, I tried the mirena coil and lasted 11 months with it, my periods got progressively worse on it, i turned into a greasy haired teenager and developed acne. It was obvious to say it wasn't agreeing with me. I also hated not being able to control when I bled as I always tried to time it for the weekend. Anyhoo I've had it out now a good few month and back on the pill Millente and taking it back to back and have a break at 3 months. My doctor suggest i take it until my body bleeds itself, has anyone ever done this? i just feel like i get to the end of my 3rd pack and I NEED a bleed.
My symptoms are the worst they've ever been and now I feel they affect me even when i'm not bleeding. I was diagnosed as having IBS when i was 17, i know what affects my tummy and what foods to avoid now, i've been coping with it for 13 years but over the last 3 months my tummy has been a nightmare. On quite a few occasions where i wasn't bleeding i've had blood in my poo, i'm constantly having diarrhea or loose bowel movements and the pain is horrific. I've also been suffering mucus wise as well. I think its related to endo but does anyone else have the same?
So this year I've been back and forward to my GP and she said we've tried everything and has referred me back to the hospital, i have my appointment on 31st Oct, how do i state that i want a lap? and for them to take me seriously.
