So I'm 34, have SUFFERED from extremely painful periods for 20 years now. In 2014 I had bleeding for 7mths straight and have had sooooo many tests done but no definitive answers. Every few months someone throws around PCOS or Endometriosis however in 2009 the laproscopy came back clear for endo. We've tried everything to manage the pain, depo stopped the bleeding but not the pain and my body has painfully rejected the mirena twice in 6 years (weeks after insertion) so the gyne has recommended an Endometrial Ablation. He's given me 4 weeks to think about it and a pamphlet on the procedure. When I read the pamphlet it clearly states that this procedure is not recommended for people with severe period pain or chronic pelvic pain to which I have both and from everything I've been reading, this procedure will make pain worse! I've been told since I am only 34 that a hysterectomy is not an option yet as I haven't had children but the Endometrial Ablation means I can't have kids anyway so I'm really confused...... Any ideas?
