Has Visanne stopped working for anyone else after three months?

Has Visanne stopped working for anyone else after three months?

I began on Visanne early this year and for me it has been a miracle! My last period was in February of this year, and then March, April, May I didn’t have one on Visanne. I had three months of bliss being pain free!
Suddenly out of the blue though, I started spotting two weeks ago and having mild pain and then yesterday my period started fully, and my endometriosis pain is here FULL ON. Excruciatingly. Has this happened to anyone else? I am so lost… read more

birth control recommendations?

birth control recommendations?

Does anyone have suggestions on what birth controls help the most? My endo has caused my whole body to swell up with extreme bloating and continuous pelvic pain. There are SO many birth control options but I want to make sure I choose the one that will be the most helpful to treat my symptoms without extreme mood swings. (I already have a predisposition for depression.)
I was on Larin FE which hasn't helped at all and I just started Isibloom.

No birth control will help. Sorry but it is true. BC is not a treatment for Endo. You need to get yourself to a specialist (an Endo specialist). If you… read more

Any suggestions for mood swings as a result of taking visanne?

Any suggestions for mood swings as a result of taking visanne?

I've been on visanne for 4 weeks now. I've noticed a few side effects however the worst is the mood swings and depression. My friends, family and boyfriend are sick of me and my mood swings because they don't understand what I'm going through. It is very frustrating because this isn't me and im not sure how to control it. I'm just wondering if anyone who has taken visanne has any recommendations on how to deal with the mood swings and if/when they go… read more

When did you get relief after surgery?

When did you get relief after surgery?

I had my first lap (ablation) for endometriosis March of this year. I was pain free for eighteen days after surgery and two days after that my post-op period started. Since then my pain has not subsided and is actually worse! I started a BCP in April and am currently on my second pack with ten days left (Will be taking it continuously). I was told to wait three packs before I would see results from the surgery. Any input or experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Looking for Endo specialist near Allentown, PA

Looking for Endo specialist near Allentown, PA

I don’t feel like my current GYN is taking my constant pain seriously. I had surgery scheduled to remove a large cyst - it ended up bursting and I told them I still had pain- they said they could cancel surgery or do exploratory surgery - I responded by asking questions about the benefits of exploratory surgery, etc. and instead of responding they just cancelled the surgery. I feel stupid because I don’t know if what I’m experiencing is because of Endo or not but no… read more

Thanks I'll check maybe UVA or VCU first. But Atlanta sounds promising if not and only about 10 hour drive from me.

Haven't had an official diagnosis, kind of stuck with doctors after them saying it was highly possible. Next step/ suggestions?

Haven't had an official diagnosis, kind of stuck with doctors after them saying it was highly possible. Next step/ suggestions?

A few years ago, my doctor asked if i knew what endo was. At the time it was new to me, now I know a little more. The doctors I have gone to have said it is highly likely with my symptoms and everything that I have endo. We did ultrasounds to check for cysts. My question is what is the best plan of action next? Do I keep prying for answers? Or is it just IBS? Thanks!

But then i started to notice other things. I was complaining of joint pain alot, and some other things that none of my doctors have attributed to endo. I was previously sent to a rheumatologist to be checked for fibromyalgia and arthritis and etc, all came back negative.

Upon looking up gluten… read more
