I was diagnoised by a gynogologis today as having endometriosis, i have been told to have the marina coil fitted to try and reduce pain and painful periods. What about the painful sex? I am 20 years old i'm not thinking about a family yet but i would really like the option when the time is right but the maria coil was the only suggestion of 'treatment' right now? I would really like to know what is going on inside me, and if and how badly my fertility is affect. I have to try this first before i can ask for a laproscopy, its a big decision i know but i just want to know the severity. What happens now? Do i just keep going on with this cycle of pain, bloating, back pain, bowel problems and time off work ? Can someone inform me please, i'm at a loss, I've been waiting for this diagnosis for over a year and i still feel at a loss. I'm not so worried about the discomfort i get but the chance that each day i could be less and less likely to ever conceive. I don't feel very informed or secure right now, or am i just being pathetic.. i dont know. I feel at a loss. What is the next step? Any info or advice would be so helpful and gratefully received. I've sort of know the last year this is what i had but after a year of waiting on appointments at the hospital and numerous swabs just to make sure i wasn't a 20 year old with an STI ( which seemed to be like look on many doctors faces) I finanly have an answer but now i'm more at a loss than ever. The painful sex, how do you deal with that? I can tell my boyfriend is scared at times to have sex... i'm so angry. Does it ever go away? Thank you, Amanda.
