I'm 31 and am trying to conceive my first child. I have been battling extremely heavy periods (flooding after 20 minutes even with super plus tampons) and chronic back and period pain for the last 3 years. I am literally bedridden for 3 days a month and despite being prescribed very strong painkillers, the pain has got so bad before I've had to go to A&E to have shots of morphine. Despite scans, hormone treatment and an investigative operation, I have been given no real answers. I was told I have 3 fibroids (biggest is around 5cm), endometrial hyperplasia and suspected endometriosis. I have seen numerous doctors and a consultant and because I want to have a baby I've basically been told there is nothing they can do! It's seriously depressing me and affecting my marriage and career. We've been trying for a year and I'm worried that I may not be able to conceive due to these conditions but I have not been told this by any medical practitioner. Does anyone else suffer from all 3 conditions and have any idea what treatments would be relevant to me? I'm desperate and don't want a hysterectomy but fear this may be my only cure. I would just like some answer.
