endless period

I have always had issues with my menstrual cycle; extra long, heavy flow, debilitating cramps, increased sensitivity, ect. I bled for about 2 years with very short breaks spread out. The doctors assumed I had endometriosis. I had a laporoscapy on Sept. 11, 2012 only to find out it's not endometriosis and they weren't sure if they fixed the problem. I did apparently have a wad of stitches that didn't dissolve after a hernia surgery I underwent 20 years ago that were interfering with my organs. The surgeon said the removal of that might help to decrease the pain. My period came back with a vengeance less than a month following the surgery. I am incredibly discouraged that I don't have any answers in regards to what is going on with my body, the recovery from the procedure was long and excruciating and I'm still experiencing pain at the incision sites. I am currently lying in bed with the heating pad to ease my cramps, help please!!!

Have you ever taken birth control pills to help with this?
