severe, severe adenomyoisis pain- not sure what to do anymore.

I do not have a hysterectomy scheduled but I sit here at my desk practically in tears from the cramps and nearly ready to pass out. My prescription ibuprofen just ain't cutting it anymore.

I did have a lap back in Feb. to have a pedunculated fibroid removed, but the dr. also suspects adenomyoisis. The pain just keeps getting worse and worse every month. I don't feel comfortable taking hormones/bc pills because I don't want all the side effects. I don't have children yet and am 36.

I go through this whole back and forth every month of being so sick of it all....but I'm just 36. It just gets depressing and I dread having to deal with this every month.

I guess I'm just venting but I'm not sure what to do anymore. I'm wondering if its worth it to go back in and see my gyn?

Hi Angelkitten

Sorry you are having to deal with this pain.

You really need to talk to your Gyn and find out what your options are, especially if you want to have children in the future.

I took bc pills for years and didn't have any side effects whatsoever so it may be worth considering if it could give you a few more years without a hysterectomy. That really should be your last resort.

Hi angelkitten, given your age and that you have not had children, I really recommend looking at all your options. I have adenomyosis and one option that I had, and seriously considered, was the Mirena IUD. It delivers progesterone directly to your uterus, and for most women, within a year it stops periods altogether. One of the nice things about that is that the hormone does not affect your entire body. The reason I did not go that route was I am in a tenous situation with my health insurance and felt nervous about waiting for the IUD to work, and I also needed surgery for incontinence anyways.
good luck with your decision

I agree with Voo, angelkitty. I have endo and suspected adeno, but we are trying to forestall a hysterectomy for as long as possible. The IUD was wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. I had one in for a year and a half, and then a second for a year. No periods, pain free - I felt like a human being again for the first time in a very long time. (In my case, unfortunately, the IUDs don't last - it seems like my body eventually figures out it's in there and freaks out. But even buying me only a year was wonderful).
