It might take your period awhile to reset itself after surgery. Surgery throws your cycle out of whack

Aygestin, Errin, Primolut N

I took this for 6 months previous to my first ever Laparoscopy in August 2015, now since the first laparoscopy I have been fine and got told not to continue with the Norethisterone but then since August 2016, my periods have been lasting 2 days then 2 days nothing then back to 2-3 days and due this time I've been in excruciating pain, and when I have been wiping, it's just dried, brown blood!

Letrozole

Letrozole

My doc prescribed Letrozole for estrogen supression. I have been on it 9 days and have been experiencing fullness in my ovaries and uterus. They are very swollen and tender, they fell like they are going to pop. I couldn't sleep due to the pain and barely made it through my work day. My mood has also been effected and I have been more depressed. I called my doctor and they offered to switch to Ayegestin, but its up to me. Has anyone experienced a decrease in side effects with Letrozole? I don't want to… read more

Is It Possible For Endo To Come Back 6 Months After A Laparoscopy?

Is It Possible For Endo To Come Back 6 Months After A Laparoscopy?

I had my first diagnostic laparoscopy March 2016 which gave me pain relief for about 2 months. I have tried many different hormonal suppression therapies since surgery. Depo x2 months, then aygestin + femara, then aygestin + lupron.. now OCPs .. possible Mirena IUD to come soon. The pain comes and goes as well as menses. Despite all of those therapies, is it still possible for endo to come back so quickly? ...With vengeance?!

Currently Have A Mirena + Taking Primolut And Norimin, Is It Worth Having A Mirena?

Currently Have A Mirena + Taking Primolut And Norimin, Is It Worth Having A Mirena?

I had a mirena inserted a few months ago. I tried stopping the pill after having it in and was experiencing to much pain, so went back on it. After a few weeks the bleeding and pain came back so my Dr put me on Norimin as well as the primolut, because she thinks the lining of my uterus is to thin.The bleeding has stopped, but I do have some spotting and pain. I honestly don't want to have to take all these pill + have the mirena… read more

It could take your body a full year to adjust to the mirena. Most women it only takes 6-8 months though and their periods stop completely. So if you can… read more
