Rough Year

I'm 20 years old and had my first surgery almost 6 years ago due to a cyst on my fallopian tube. My surgeon ended up having to remove my tube due to it being covered in endometriosis and severely deformed. Fast forward 2 years and I've had irregular heavy periods. I was on the pill for the a year or so but that wasn't helping with the irregular periods. I then tried the nexplanon and that worked for a year before I had severe migraines and ended up in the E.R.

Finally a doctor that validated my pain!

The past year has consisted of endless E.R visits, being on Orilissa (worst decision of my life) and many types of birth control. Today (11/25/19) I met with a doctor who actually listened to me and decided to schedule another surgery for early next year.
