I am 36 years old and was diagnosed with endometriosis at age 19. Had a laproscopy and – lost 1/2 of one ovary and one tube, also had a laprotomy. On Danazol (next three years) on and off for three six month treatments. Tried to conceive and was unable – have too much scar tissue. Was put on bc continuously until we were to try IVF. Off pill for six months, had IVF, had a set of healthy twins. Heavy periods, pain, clotting all returned right after I finished with breastfeeding. Went back on the bc continously. I have small fibroids, but doctor wants me to keep on BC. Just converted to Catholicism last year, was told that since it was medically necessary staying on bc was not an issue. However, with bc, still have mood swings, some cramping and no sex drive what-so- ever.
Recently heard of NFP and wonder if it’s something that will work for me and if I’ll still be able to function – the severe endo ruled my life before bc.
