This is my first time writing, as like many posts i've read, I feel like I have hit a wall.
I am currently working overseas in the middle east, and was eventually diagnosed with stage 2/3 Endo back in April this year. I'm not entirely sure where it all is, but i believe it's fused with my bowels. The doctors here aren't very forthcoming with explanations.
They prescribed me with visane - a dienogest, but it made me very ill so I stopped. Also, as we have decided we really would like to try for another baby, it was pointless taking it. (All in all its been almost 2 years of trying now, but this year has been consumed with the Endo diagnosis)
They have refused to do anything further as it's my choice to not take the tablets and that's all that is on offer for me. So every month is back to pain and their answer is - take paracetamol.
Basically I will be home at the end of November and I want to try and get some further advice and move forward with alternative treatment that may still allow me to get pregnant, rather than just rule it out . I am going to see my gp, but feel the NHS is going to be a long wait and I am considering going private. (I am 37 so time is not in my favour - of course, there may be othere reasons that I am not conceiving but I will have to deal with that at another point.)
I am based near Grimsby, so was hoping someone could recommend a private clinic? And how I go about getting referred to a specialist? Even on the NHS if needs be? I have heard about castle hill in Hull, but not sure if it's private or NHS.
