Am new here and this is my first post so just want to say hello!
Here's a bit of my story:
I'm 29 and have been having painful sex on and off for around the last 10 years sometimes with bleeding. In that time I've had 2 children and various 'odd' menstrual cycles - long, irregular, spotting, heavy, light and so on. I've tried many different contraceptives including the POP and combined pill, depo, coil and so on. Last year I started bleeding again after sex and getting severe cervical and pelvic pain, which continued for days after intercourse. One day I was gushing with blood and couldn't move after due to the pain. I went for a hysteroscopy a few weeks later and it was singularly the most awful experience of my life. It was absolute agony - I have never, ever, ever experienced pain like that, particularly around my cervix. The doctor wasn't particularly bothered, and didn't find anything but she shoved a coil up there for no apparent reason. I went back to the GP and got a second opinion referral. This time the consultant removed my coil as I wasn't having any problems with the pill and booked me in for a lap which I have in a months time.
I'm off the pill now as I am hypertensive so not using anything but the pelvic pain and bleeding has stopped although I do still get cervical pain during sex.
Have done some research and it does sound like I may have endo as I get left suprapubic 'tugging' pain, bloating, tiredness and so on.
Anyway just wanted to share and say hi
