Ok, here goes..
I am a 24 yo that has had endometriosis since the age of 13. I have tried the pill. Injections, tablets to stop my periods, countless pain meds and none of this helped at all! So 5 year ago I had a diagnostic lap to confirm my suspicions of endometriosis and have a coil fitted. After the coll fitting and a diagnosis I felt a lot better but as you can all imagine, the pain started to come back. I kept going back to my gynae, but she would only put my pain med dosage up and blame Ibs! After a couple of years I stopped going back but the pain got so bad I asked my gp to refer me to another gynae. I went to see them the other week and I'm having my second lap on Monday to have what they can lasered off. A dye test and my Mirena replaced and I'm nervous!!
I don't really know what I want from writing this. I think just reaching out to people who are in the same situation!!
