    Hi everyone! I am new to the group and new to all of this is general. My name is Crystal, I am 31 and have an almost 2 year old. I have had problems with my endometriosis since last November. I have tried back to back nuva ring, but still had bleeding and pain. The doctor wants to put me on depo provera or insert Mirena after my next laparoscopic surgery on Friday. Does anyone have any opinions on either medications? I have read bad things about both, but I would really like to hear from someone and not just read about it. I hope that makes sense. Thanks for any help you can give.

    nice to meet you crystal.

    sorry it took so long for a reply and i am also sorry you are having issues.
    i know even on constant pills i was still getting 2 periods a month but i have heard that because of endo causing the uterus to "swell" i guess is the best term the IUD tends to aggravate it and the last 2 girls i knew that ghot one had it removed in the first 2 months.
    not sure if it helps but if you need any other help let me know. if i am not on here i still check my emailing religously daily so you can send any qustions or concerns direct to my addy thats in my bio and i will be more than happy to help
