For about a year I have had pain urinating during my period. The pain is specifically on my lower left side and is quite severe and sharp during and after urinating, I literally cannot stand up straight afterwards. The pain comes with my period, lasts approximately 2 weeks after my period has finished and then returns with my period and the whole dreaded cycle starts again!
I had a laparoscopy in Jan this year but apparently no endometriosis was found. I have since had urine tests for infections, all were negative. I have had an ultrasound, and MRI scan and a cystoscopy to look in my bladder - but all results were normal.
I just dont know what to do. The pain I experience during my period is excruciating and I have been back to my GP. She just said that if a urologist cannot help me then I will 'just have to live with it'. The pain is affecting my life, I just cannot forget about it.
I have heard that endo can be missed, does anyone know whether this is actually true and has anyone experienced such painful urination during their period?
