I don't know where else to turn. I was diagnosed with endo about 6 years ago. It feels as if it has taken over my whole life. I can't work any more because I'm constantly in pain and weak from anemia from bleeding SOOO much. My menses has been on for over 2 months STRAIGHT. And it's been heavy in the worse way. I actually have to were maximum strength Depends! Because I soak them through. I'm being seen by a pevic pain clinic because my gyno says I'm out of his league. They put me on all different types of birth controls but my body forced my period on anyways. I've also tramatically passed grapefruit sized clots. The doctor said the pain I experienced during these nightmares were as if I were having labor contractions. Now the only other options they have to stop the bleeding are 2 procedures that risks infertility. If I couldn't have children it would break my heart! I'm only 29 yrs old and this is too young for that opportunity to be snatched away from me. I don't know what to do... Right now all I can do is take the heavy pain pills I've been prescribed and continue bleeding immensely. My primary care physician wants to send me to a hematologist for a possible blood transfusion. Does anyone have any advice? Sorry this question was so long, but I need serious help!!! Thank you for reading!
