So I finally get to see the endometriosis specialist tomorrow. You know how it is, you wait sooo long to see a doctor and then you can't even remember half the things you wanted to ask the doctor. So I thought I write everything down. But also woud love some opinions.
I suffer from mirgraines, so any type of birth control is not an option for me (gyno already scratch this off the list)
There is a med endo patients can take but because I suffer from ulcer's I can't take it, don't even know the name (gyno just scratch it off the list)
I've one the Depro.. was on it for 5 years I believe it messed with my crohn's, but it could just be my crohn's was really bad at the time. But I found I was sooo depressed on this med, I really don't want to go back to that especially knowing how I am with out it.
My last option the gyno gave me was Lupron. I scatch this off the list myself!!!
So as you can see I have no options to stop my period to stop suffering from Endo.
Please tell me there is another option out there for me?!
Thanks for any advice/suggestions.. greatly appreciated.
