I've had 2 laparoscopys now and I'm only 21. I've been told I have only Stage 1 endometriosis but now 16 months after my second surgery my symptoms are recurring.
It isn't so much the pain, it is no worse than normal period pain, it is the BLEEDING. I bleed once every few days, always after sex or any arousal at all. I just want to wake up one morning without blood in the bed. I can't even exercise without bleeding. I'm on the implant and have been on contraception since I was 16.
I was told by my gynae that the endometriosis is between my bowel and my womb. I can't eat anything without being bloated, my boobs always hurt etc etc.
I'm not sure what to do as I'm going back to the same gynaecologist now for the 3rd time in 3 years, surely I can't just have a laparoscopy every year once it comes back?
Any similar experiences or advice would be really appreciated as I just feel at a loss.
