Where to go next? Is Diane 35 safe?

I have reached a point in my treatment where things are hitting a stalemate. A little bg: I have exhausted most of the method of birth control that you can imagine. I have multiple medical problems to boot. Lately, my doctor has recommended that I take Diane 35. I have read so many horror stories, I am afraid to take it. The doctor it is either this or nothing. I have already had 3 laparoscopic surgeries, and no one is eager to go back in. My endo is noticeably getting worse. I… read more

Emotional

I find myself crying every single day. Waking up sad and going to sleep sad. It's really affecting my relationship as I don't want any affection at all. We haven't been intimate for nearly a year and I think it's really damaging my relationship. How do all u lovely ladies do it? Being a women is hard enough with al the mood swings let alone suffering with endometriosis too.

Does anyone have heartburn or stomach problems with their endo?

I've had 2 surgeries and my endo hasn't gotten any better. But for the past few cycles I've had heartburn and stomach issues that seem to be contributed from my endo. I'm sure I'm not eating well but I was just wondering if anyone else has issues with this.

I've always had ibs when I come on(TMI I know) but I'm wondering if it's now affecting the acids in my stomach.

Heeeeelp!

How long did your laparoscopy sooth your symptoms?

I had a Larascopy in February and now it's May and I feel a lot of relief. I was just wondering, realistically (from real people; not a doctor or statistic) how long until I'll need another ?
