I had quite a major lap 3 mths ago and although I feel like I'm on an upward curve in general, I'm still struggling with the same symptoms as before: FATIIIIIIIGUE, foggy head, mild depression, aches & pains, no temperature control, low libido etc etc! All that hormone stuff. I'm taking Microgynon and tricycling it to not have as many periods. But with all these symptoms my hormones are obviously still playing havoc.
I've just found out about bio identical hormones and functional medicine and wondered if any of you have had any experience with this? Can I be referred to see someone about this? By NHS or private?
My diet is good and strict, more or less the endo diet, I believe it really helps my symptoms, but I still struggle to feel vaguely normal. I feel so 'hormonal' though and wondering if bioidentical hormones might be 'the answer'! I know I'm asking a lot, endo is endo, and we all have to deal with what we've got but its worth a try...!
I see my consultant on Weds and wonder what my next realistic steps will be. I fear that his job is done (excisional surgery). Will he laugh at a request for bioidentical referral??
Thanks girls, any knowledge gratefully received :-). Love to you all. Xx
