    This sounds like quite a bit of pain. And your doctors aren't responsive?

    There are lots of possibilities here. You might have chronic cystitis, or adhesions from endometriosis that was never properly diagnosed. Have you had a pelvic ultrasound? Yes, your tilted uterus might be part of the problem. It sounds as if you need a good pelvic workup - and maybe a reevaluation of your current HRT regimen.

    Why do you have a coil? You're not still having periods, are you?

    If your doctors won't spend a little time looking you over and thinking about your pain, find other doctors!

    And - for your own sake - don't completely rule out the idea of a hysterectomy.
