GnRH analogues for endometriosis - any experiences?

I have pelvic pain due to endometriosis which has just been diagnosed at laparoscopy. It's too extensive for lasering and I can't take testosterone derivatives or the pill. Fertility is (sadly) no longer an issue. I'm seriously considering hysterectomy as I'm incapacitated by the pain. I'm wondering if it's worth trying GnRH first (Prostap, Zoladex or similar) but also wonder if that would just prolong the agony. Any personal experiences? TIA

I am fairly sure that the Mirena Coil can help. Do a search online.
