Big hugs. It is a big shock and a lot to take in so understandable to be emotional and upset.

Are you on the pill or any hormone treatment? They can cause or worsen low mood as a side effect. I came off mine ( they weren't working as my Endo was hormone resistant) but I still get very anxious and emotional the day or two before, so PMT is quite strong for me. I also develop anxiety when my chronic fatigue kicks in.

Yes I’m on Desogestrel only until January when I go back to see my gynaecologist, to see how I have been then she said possibly I will have a laparoscopy.

For me my estrogen levels are high. I find that this and the pain stops me from coping. I make mistakes, I forget things, I stress and cry. I have accidents, break things and just feel ill and not myself
