^^What he said.

It's the estrogen cycling that makes it worse. I had to go back on the pill because of it. Wasn't thrilled.

I voted NO on the surgery because it's just temporary and the stuff comes back. Not interested in being cut open for that.

^^^What they said. Surgery should be a last-resort; scarring is pretty common.

I've been OR Nurse...so I know the surgical procedure...it's ablation. I had a friend who had it done and it worked for two years, then she started to slowly get her cycle back. I considered it and I've even talked to my GYN about it, but just hadn't gotten around to it...he says ultimately a hysterectomy (which when I was diagnosed almost 20yrs ago I was told I had to have it done asap...I chose not to and I had two wonderful boys! Then over the past 6yrs I've had problems with conception).

Which pill? I usually don't tolerate them well...I've taken Yaz in the past. What about Mirena? I knows it's an implant, but wondered if it does the same thing?

I would imagine any mono-phasic pill would work. Anything that stops the estrogen from cycling up and down. Not sure that Mirena would work just for that reason - don't know how it affects the estrogen cycle.

I don't get along well w/ pills either, which is why I was ticked to have to go back on.

I'm on Mircette now. I can't really recommend or not recommend it to anyone just because pills are very much "your mileage may vary". Makes me feel just as horrible as all the rest. Though I did take Yasmin (the higher estrogen sister of Yaz) and it was HORRIBLE for me. But I'm highly estrogen-sensitive. Go figure.

Don't know which pill would be best, honestly, 'cause my gyno and I had a falling out after she absolutely flippin' insisted on me getting the surgery. Last I checked it's my decision. So I'm just on whatever pill it is that has given me the least problems.

Go with Seasonale or a pill that gives less periods to reduce the pain/scarring frequency or instead of a pill go with an IUD. I have had no trouble at all since switching to an IUD - though I should mention that I also had my daughter which also could have helped.
