Chris and I went to see our family doctor yesterday. That was the first time we’d been there since last October.
It seems like it was a very long time since our last visit to the doctor. That’s probably because when my Crohn’s started acting up two years ago there was a time when I was seeing my family doctor just about every week! Chris also had some health problems around that time too and he was a frequent visitor as well.
I’m still sick, of course, but this visit was mainly just a check up and to get refills for my prescriptions.
Along with Crohns I’ve also got Endometriosis and my periods have been becoming much more painful lately. So I mentioned this to my doctor and she suggested I try going on Depro-Provera. I think I’m going to try it.
I’m still hoping I’ll get pregnant at some point (soon), but I can’t take this pain. I swear during my last two periods I was in so much pain that I seriously thought of getting a hysterectomy! That certainly won’t help me get pregnant! So I guess I’ll try the Depro for three to six months and see if that helps my endo. Perhaps once my pain is down (it might help my crohns too because I might have some endo on my bowels) I’ll have more luck trying to have a baby.
Do you suffer from endometriosis? If you do, what have you done to relieve the symptoms?
