Hi everyone, I'm new on here and was looking for some advice. I'm 22 and have been having the most horrendous painful periods (and pain when not bleeding, pain when going to the toilet and now pain during sex) for about 2 years now. The doctors think I might have endometriosis. I have the mirena coil fitted in november to try and help which has just led to me basically constantly bleeding for the last 6 months. My doctor told me to wait another month (to 7 months post fitting) to see if it works, my most recent ultrasound also showed an ovarian cyst. She now wants to send me for a referral for a laproscopy but I'm really apprehensive about it. Because I'm only young, I don't want to have to keep having surgery for the rest of my life but equally want to try and preserve my fertility for when I want to start having children. Just feel like I'm being pushed down the surgery route with no other option or choice, and I'm not sure if that's what I want.
Does anyone have any advice or been through the same kind of thing?
Just feeling down and like this is so relentless and ongoing! Just want it solved :(.
