I have severe endometriosis which is on my left ovary and through my bowel. I was on Zoladex for 15 months prior to starting our cycle at the end of October, which calmed everything down and I didn’t have periods in that time (it was like a holiday from the pain and allowed me to have a normal life for a while).
Following our BFN at the weekend, I started bleeding on Monday and for the last 3 days it has been incredibly painful when my bowel starts filling up. Last night I was on the floor in agony and couldn’t even speak to my partner (who has been amazing through all this), and today I have had to come home from work as I am in agony.
I’m wondering if it’s a kind of ‘swing back’ effect from coming off the Zoladex or if it is just to do with the endometrium being so stimulated through the process.
I rang the clinic and I’m not having my follow up appointment for 4 weeks, but I’m getting desperate for some help and some answers. My GP is absolutely useless and diagnosed my endometriosis as constipation originally.
Has anyone else gone through IVF with endometriosis, and how did you cope with it?!
