Hi have just come back from doc. And she is pretty convinced i have endometriosis. Have had endometriosis cysts but were removed 7 years ago. I am being referred to the gyna at hospital. But she was talking about hormone implants. Which sound delightful. Not!!
So does anyone have any experience of these implants and do they help with the endometriosis?
hmm I had synarel, a drug that induces the menopause, think it stops oestrogen production, I had a terrible terrible time without it was the blackest 6months of my life, my weight plumetted and I was a size 6, my boobs went, hair fell out on my legs and arms, hot flushes, depression you can't imagine, exhausted. I didn't like it very much at all. Not sure what the implants do but i would be very wary of hormone treatment. It only gave me respite too it wasn't a permanant fix either. I have since had great success with Chinese herbal medicine and accupuncture. If I had known about TCM then I wouldn't have endured the homone drug.
I think it's the menopause drug but a different brand. I probably had bloody awful side-affects it might not be the same for someone else. You need a laparoscopy for a proper diagnosis. There's an endometriosis support group who will be able to help.
rm1 i had an internal this morning and she said something about the neck of my womb. Wasn't expeccting an internal or i wouldn't have taken my 2 and 4 yr old with me. Couldnt concentrate on what she was saying whike trying to get my knickers on and watch them 2!!
hello i am interested to speak to rebelmum1 who left a message back in july. I have 2 children and thats it for us! However i had had horrendous pain inside me since they were born and am about to have my 3rd zoladex injection. They have recommended 6 in total. I am terrified about coming off the injections as they have turned things around for me but was interested in the chinese medcine that you have taken / acupuncture as you have said that it helped you so much. I would be so grateful if you would be able to drop me a line. Thanks so much would so much appreciate it.
I had cysts and lessions(sp?) etc burnt off/cut away in nov 2005, plus the mirena coil inserted.
I have to say, apart from the first 6mths settling in period, I am happy with the mirena. I have had a few issues recently, but I think they are more to do with me reacting to my my DD1 and 2's hormones as they are going thro puberty at the mo, plus DD1 has recentlyt started her periods.
