Anyone Taking Visanne Have Prolonged Periods?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I started taking visanne 7-8 weeks ago and had a noticeable reduction in pain however my first cycle while on the medication hasnt stopped and I'm going on 4 weeks. My gyno is suggesting I tough it out since it's working to reduce pain but I'm inclined to stop if the bleeding continues. Everything I've read so far about visanne indicates your period should become lighter and maybe even disappear so I'm wondering if anyone else had this side effect and was there a way to stop the bleeding?

Period Pain Right After Laparoscopy?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

My first period since my laparoscopy and hysteroscopy for stage 4 endometriosis on my bowels and uterus is due on Monday - I've heard first periods after are extremely painful, and my surgeon tells me to "pre load" with painkillers - has anyone else been through this? Can anyone tell me what to expect?

First Period After Laparoscopic Surgery And DNC
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hey all! It’s been 5 weeks since I’ve had my first laparoscopic surgery along with a DNC. I just ended my first period since the surgery which sucked major ass but im curious what everyone else’s experiences have been after their first period after the surgery as well as experience after their first surgery? I still don’t feel like the surgery has helped. I have pain still so I don’t know if that’s because I’m still healing? TIA

I am having surgery to remove the scar tissue and while I am asleep, they want to put an IUD in as well. I am super nervous about the IUD and want to know if there are side effects, and if the IUD is a good route to go.

Is This Normal After Surgery?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I recently had surgery for endometriosis and an drainage of ovarian cyst I had low interior bowel resection as my endometriosis bowel nodule was huge 11-12cms the surgeon thought the size was impressive I was just glad the thing was out as it was also pulling my uterus down

I didn’t have the same surgery, but did experience clots after mine.
