A bit has happened since my last post. The ovarian cyst went away after I had the Implanon removed, but I was still experiencing pain in the same location. Most things had been ruled out so my GP and gynecologist started to suspect endometriosis. I was booked in for a laparoscopy but that was delayed due to another condition. When I was finally able to have it, endometriosis was indeed found and removed (unfortunately the only real way to get a diagnosis is through surgery).
That was a month ago and I’m still in a fair bit of pain. On top of that, I’ve had a UTI and a yeast infection since then. The first round of treatment I took hasn’t cleared up the latter yet so I’m stuck shooting cream up into my vagina for another 5 days in hope that it will be gone after that. I just hope it doesn’t turn out to be some other random problem.
On the bright side, the first time I had sex with Bride after he came back was amazing. It was like my vagina agreed to let me have this one instance of sex without doing crazy, pain inducing stuff. We’re still able to have sex sometimes, but not as frequently as usual. He’s understanding at least.
I’m taking the pill now and it’s not as bad as I thought it would be (though apps like this one help a great deal). It’s not as easy as having a rod in my arm that only has to be changed every 3 years, but I was told it would lessen the chance of endo coming back.
It has been months since I’ve felt able to use a dildo, but I hope to get back into reviewing soon. I’ll probably be sticking to non-insertables for at least a while longer though. I apologize for my lack of posts as of late, but it has been a lot to deal with.
