Would anyone be interested in writing to local members in sydney / western sydney to try and raise awareness for us women with endometriosis? Starting small and wanting to make a difference. DM me or email me (Email address can only be seen by MyEndometriosisTeam users) any ideas and we can go from there.

I had Laparoscopic surgery/hysteroscopy/D&C on Tuesday. Waiting for an apt to get my results and to be told what happened during surgery.

I was given a 6 month treatment of zoladex to try manage my symptoms on endo which had some improvements but since been on it I've had a 6kg sudden weight gain that I cannot budge and no sex Drive. I've been off the zoladex for 6 months, I'm a newly wed and used to have one very healthy libido. Getting very frustrated with being patient.

Hey guys. So I've been feeling kind of off the last few days and I thought it was endo related. I've just been super tired and just pretty blah.

There is an amazing one in Canada, http://endometriosisnetwork.com. I have been to a few of their events and they are a fantastic organization. Can they be added to the organization options?
I have my laparoscopy next week and I've been taking the yasmin pill with both breaks for 3 months as advised by my surgeon but he didn't tell me to come off it before surgery. Is that normal?
I'm stopping it today anyway as my body is hell bent on having a period and I just need to get it out but I will only have been off it for 6 days before going in for the op.
I want to ask my doctor about this, as no birth control or hormonal therapy really helps me. Does anyone know anyone that has had this done? Was it worth it? Doctors have told me opposite things. One told me it’s not done anymore, because it doesn’t really work. Other people have said that it is a 70% success rate with pain reduction.
