What can I expect coming off visanne? How can I do this myself?

What can I expect coming off visanne? How can I do this myself?

I have been on visanne 2 years now and over the course of those 2 years, I have been depressed and suffered some dark bouts. I have also gained 30lbs, and I seem to be gaining weight faster as the months go on. I had a chocolate cyst removed in 2017 and some adhesions. I have stage 4 endo and it’s on my bowels too. I am so fed up and depressed by my physical body that I can’t even explain. I want to come off the meds but my doctor feels it’s the best… read more

Has anyone else dealt with abdominal wall endometriosis?

Has anyone else dealt with abdominal wall endometriosis?

I have had it for a few years now and it has really gotten bad the last few months. I'm wondering if it is more internal than doctors originally thought. Struggling to find a treatment that actually helps. I've been on a couple iuds and a couple birth control pills but nothing has really helped. Currently on loloestrin.

pain during transvaginal ultrasound

pain during transvaginal ultrasound

I recently was diagnosed with suspected endometriosis due to unbearable pain and digestive issues during my period and sharp stabbing pains especially during ovulation. I went today to get a routine pelvic exam and transvaginal ultrasound to see if there is anything else that could be causing this. The pap smear/pelvic exam went fine, but the ultrasound was terrible. The way my ovaries are positioned, she had to push the device quite hard at weird angles to see them. It felt… read more

Does anyone have endometrium tissue on their ureter?

Does anyone have endometrium tissue on their ureter?

Because of the placement of the tissue they were unable to remove and now its just a waiting game in hope that the progesterone in the IUD they put in will help remove the tissue. Just wondering if anyone has been through and had any success with hormone treatments and what they find works?

abdominal wall endo

abdominal wall endo

Does anyone on here have endo in the abdominal wall / rectus muscle after c section? I really need some advice. So much pain the last couple weeks. I have tried hormone therapy and hate it. I elected not to have it removed as I don't want mesh. Don't know what other options are available. Hoping to get a second opinion somewhere that they specialize in this. Thank you!

You must find a really good gynecologist who knows about all of this. They will take it from there and tell what to do moving forward.

Struggling to find the right treatment

Struggling to find the right treatment

Hello everyone!
I'm new to this site and happy to be able to hear everyone's stories. I was diagnosed based on symptoms for Endometriosis about ten years ago. I've been on Norethindrone for 7 years and for the most part have had good luck. I have a hard time losing weight with it but no other prominent side effects. The only issue is breakthrough bleeding/periods. It used to occur only if I didn't take the pill at the EXACT same time each day (which is so hard to remember)… read more
