I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed and stupid. I saw a BSGE gynaecologist recently who said he was pretty certain I don’t have endometriosis. He did an internal exam but didn’t listen to any symptoms or history (I completed a brief form beforehand), just read my (clear) ultrasound notes. He told me my option was the progesterone only pill (I can’t take the combined) as it was just painful periods, and if that didn’t help to return in 4 months. He obviously knows what he’s talking about being BSGE but I can’t shake the worry the pill will “mask” my pain and there’s something underlying. He said my periods would probably get less painful as I got older but they’re just getting worse. Now I’m left wondering what is causing all my symptoms if not endometriosis.
I’m returning to uni in September and I’m terrified that I’ll return to the gynaecologist still in pain in 3 months just as term starts. Of course I’m really glad he doesn’t think I have endometriosis, I just really wish he’d let me ask my questions. I just feel so overwhelmed and silly as he definitely thought I was wasting his time. So sorry for the long post - does anyone know about the progesterone only pill? xx
