Non-menstrual Cramping

I am on full time birth control to have minimal menstrual cycles. I've been on this particular pill for about 5 years now and it was doing it's job up until the last 12 months or so. I would usually only get symptoms (severe cramping, gas, mood swings) during menses but now I feel like I experience these sysmptoms almost all the time. The most distressing is the pain and cramping I experience after clitoral stimulation. Penatative intercourse seems fine but i experience extremely sharp… read more

Anyone taking visanne have prolonged periods?

I started taking visanne 7-8 weeks ago and had a noticeable reduction in pain however my first cycle while on the medication hasnt stopped and I'm going on 4 weeks. My gyno is suggesting I tough it out since it's working to reduce pain but I'm inclined to stop if the bleeding continues. Everything I've read so far about visanne indicates your period should become lighter and maybe even disappear so I'm wondering if anyone else had this side effect and was there a way… read more

The reason I ask is because I have been told.i have to have a c section due to were my placenta in lying ..

Feeling a little stuck. I had a transvaginal ultrasound and an MRI.

My *doctor believes I have endometriosis. I thought I had endometriosis. None of the tests I've undergone show evidence of endometriosis. I know that's common, I'm aware imaging tests don't typically reveal anything unless it's deeply infiltrative, but I'm not sure where to go from here. I'm in between jobs, I'm on my parents insurance, and everyone I've asked has told me not to pursue a lap with someone who isn't an endo specialist. But none of… read more

Fatigue worsened by the pill?

Hi lovely ladies,

I am in the process of being diagnosed with endometriosis after several years of symptoms.

I have experienced fatigue since around 2009 which has gradually increased over the years. It got particularly bad last year and I was eventually diagnosed with CFS/ME and signed off work for several months.

In February this year, I was feeling desperate and, so, decided to come off my contraceptive pill (which I also started taking in 2009), as I wondered if the artificial… read more
