How To Stop A Prolonged Period
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi I was recently prescribed Visanne by my Dr. The pain almost immediately disappeared, but I started my period a month into taking it and now it's been 10 days straight on my period which is showing no signs of stopping. Any ideas on how to make it stop as it's creating havoc in my day to day life

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

The period went on for abt 10 days and then stopped. I've been taking Vissane for a couple of months now. Haven't got my subsequent period yet..... hope it stays that way 🤞 Have had a bit of mild… read more

Has Mefenamic Acid Worked For Anyone?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I was taking naproxen 500mg for severe period pain but over time it stopped working so well. I went back to the doctor and he prescribed mefenamic acid and said it’s used to treat endometriosis and should help my pain. After getting home I looked it up and it was saying it was less effective than naproxen but when I got my period again I tried it anyway. It barely did anything and today I went back to the naproxen. I’ve sent an online message asking if I can have anything stronger that’s… read more

Pain Management For Redheads...(or Those That Don't Respond Well To Pain Meds)
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi everyone
Really frustrated lately with the lack of options available for those of us that have bodies that don't respond to pain medication. In example, after my last surgery, morphine did absolutely nothing to alleviate my pain. Meds given for post surgery did NOTHING to help me. The only thing that has worked a tad is Dilaudid (hydromorphone). It was the strongest medicine available in the entire hospital I was at and I needed 3 doses just to dull my pain! I can't exactly get a… read more

I’m also on dilaudid for the unbearable days, but I hate taking it. I’ve been on medical marijuana which helps, but I go to sleep after. My daughter wakes up from cramps, and she takes Naproxen with… read more

Has Anyone Used Aspen-Diegnogest/Visanne To Help With Heavy Flow Or Micronor/Movisse And What Side Effects Did You Experience?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been prescribed both in the past and haven't used either as I was concerned about the side effects, especially with Aspen-Diegnogest/Visanne but my flow is out of control and I have endo in many places included bladder and rectum so that makes it worse. I have only used Naproxen for years for the pain but I have been beyond "managing" for a long time now, especially with the flow and I have also learned/realized that this treatment plan does not actually "treat" endo which… read more

Tilted Uterus
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hey everyone
I’m wondering if anyone else has been told they have a “tilted uterus” and if so, how has it affected you?
I’ve been having bad abdominal pain and cramping for six months, so I’ll be having another lap on the 16th.
I have Crohns and it’s been such a headache with the GI doctors assuming my pain, bloating etc is from Endo. I deep down feel that I have adhesions behind the uterus and possibly on the bowel.

Also, does anyone else get crazy water retention?

What do you take for… read more
