i am 29 and was diagnosed with endo with a laparoscopy. I had adhesions in three areas. They missed it the first time. Before that i was in and out of hospital with pain killers and drips. I was pulled from pillar to post and was very depressed leading me to see a counsellor. I did not know where to turn. I changed dr and the lady said to me after i described the pains. That sounds like endo. She put me with an amazing gynae. He found it and lasered my adhesions. It was fine until three months later. 4 laparoscopy later and we decided to have the mirena coil. It helped alot. had it for nearly four years. Had it out in sept 2011. As my husband and i want to start a family. Since have had one normal period and bleeding every two weeks. I get awful migranes and grinding endo pains. 6 days before period and 6 days after every two weeks. Anyone had this experience and will my periods calm down. we want to have a baby as soon as we can. I just hope it happens. I am going to see a counsellor because it is all getting me down again. I have an endometriosis group on face book and a endometriosis page. look at those too and feel free to add comments etc. this health unlocked is really good. Thank you Joanna Spackman. I had five consultants before finding the right person. I have also been to see dian shepperson mills who is a top nutritionist. she gave me some vitamins and some very good dietry meals to help. she has had severe endo for many years.
