Hi everyone,

I’ve never got on well with hormones.....combined causes migraines, pills made my existing anxiety worse and the Mirena made my moods terrible. I’ve already had excision surgery but 2 years after and it’s defo taken over again. I’m due on period now and I feel terrible, I’ve got a low grade fever this month aswell. I need something to try and help, any one have any suggestions of something that might work but keep anxiety to a minimum?

It’s a progesterone only pills special for endometriosis. I’m not sure about provera . Never tried it. Visanne ( dienogest) if you google it it gives you all the info. Some side effects but worth it o think.
