Hello, I just spoke to a lovely volunteer from the helpline who suggested I try this forum. I saw a gynaecologist today who said more than likely I have endometriosis. I have been prescribed provera, tranxamic acid and have been referred for a pelvic MRI and keyhole surgery. I have suffered with heavy bleeding and pain for over 10 years. The gynaecologist said my fertility will be affected. I feel so tearful as I write this and frustrated with myself that I have not pursued this earlier. I have never known anything other than heavy, painful periods so assumed it was normal. So sorry to blurt this all out, I just feel emotional and wanted to get this off my chest.
Thank you for reading,
