I am 30, been in agony with stomach pains, bloating, sickness, lethargy, Depression and constipation where I only go to the toilet once every three weeks. I have spent the past 15 years being told I have IBS although I had to have an ovary moved 5 years ago due to cysts.

I have trouble functioning in normal life now and my new GP after 3 months treatment of Giardia, now thinks it may be endo as I have heavy periods, only go to the toilet when I ovulate and menstrate and cannot get out of bed during the menstrual days due to heavy clotting.

My GP has now recommded going on the pill. The last few times I have taken it, I get more depressed and quite violent, I even had to take time off work as I couldn't cope. Once I stop taking the pill the Depression lightens.

I really feel like I am in a black hole. is there any other alternatives other than the pill, and does it really help the symptoms? Can any surgery be done to help?

Thanks loads for any advice!

Maddie :)
