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

Is Anyone Else Experiencing Insomnia/restless Legs/night Mares From Primolut N (Norethindrone)?

Ive been on Primolut N (Norethindrone) for almost a month and in the beginning i was getting headaches all the time ( i normally never have headaches) and my mood is still all over the place. Except from these side effects I'm also having a lot of trouble sleeping, i get the worst nightmares and i wake up a couple of times a night. I can't find any information about this in the listed side effects (from Sweden)

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… read more

Visanne Vs Aygestin

Visanne Vs Aygestin

Anyone tried both Visanne (Dienogest) and Aygestin (Norethindrone)? If so, please share your experience regarding effectiveness for endometriosis. Did one medication have more side effects (breakthrough bleeding, weight gain, bloating, and fluid retention, etc) than the other?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

Vissane worked for me, no weight gain, no acne. Effects were mood swings, low libido at times, nauseous feeling.

Treatment Suggestions

Treatment Suggestions

Hello everyone,

I just had laparoscopic surgery 2/22 and my gynecologist has found adhesion/ endo in my uterus. Some were able to be removed however there are still smaller ones still there. The gynecologist told my parents I would need the shot I’m guessing (lupron) which will put me in a menopause state. My question is what treatments have you sought out? Is the shot worth it or should I look into alternatives I’m already on birth control and have been for years.
