When he discussed his findings with me, he said he suspects endometriosis. He gave me a prescription for Ponstan/Mefenamic acid, and told me to come back in three months time. I'm on lithium for bipolar, so I checked with my psychiatrist if I was allowed to take it, and surprise! It interacts with lithium! Needless to say, I'm super frustrated, especially since I have fibromyalgia as well and am in constant pain whether or not I have my period.
What do I do? What are my options? I'm calling the gyno back next week, of course. Am I a hopeless case because I can't take NSAIDs? Will I need surgery? Help!
