I'm new to this page, but hopefully maybe someone could shade some light about contraception alternatives. I've had key hole surgery back in 2013, for endometriosis. I'm only stage 2, so not too bad. I also was told I had Adenomyosis as well, but I think it comes with the territory of having endometriosis, they usually walk hand in hand. Any way I struggled to keep the pill down, a couple of years before surgery, and before I knew I had endometriosis I used to take the pill. I generally find after a few days of taking the pill, I get sick and throw up, also even after the break seven day break, I would start to throw up again. Thinking in the past, I always had very heavy periods. I generally don't think the pill did much to prevent this condition, because being sick, my body wasn't properly absorbing the pill. Which would lead me to believe the pill may of not been very productive in protecting my body from producing endometrium tissue again. As a couple of years later, I found out I had endometriosis anyway. After surgery I told the the gynae consultant about the problems I was facing with the pill, being sick all the time. So the hospital had fitted me with the Mirena coil. I only have two problems with the Mirena coil. One each month when spotting, I get really bad cystitis pains. Also I still get stabbing sensations, like I have swallowed a little razor and its sits inside my womb digging in. The other issue is I have no libido, at all. I haven't looked at anyone properly in last 5 years, I have very little interest in sex, I don't really think about it. If there has been any slight form of attraction, it last as long as two weeks max. I forget about any forms of sexual attraction, and carry on like nothing has happened. Its kind of a concern, I've just turn 35, and having a family is starting to slip through my fingers. every 5 years the coil needs to be removed and replaced with a new one. Now that five years is up, if the hospital fit me with another Mirena coil. I will touching 40 by the time the next one come out. I can't really afford to mess around with my hormone levels too much, because its effecting my sex drive. Are there other alternatives out there, which won't effect my drive? I kind of need my drive back, if I really want to be with someone, and to have a healthy sex life with them, as well as to have children with, before I get too much older than what I am now.
