I've been referred (finally!!) to a Gyne about my periods. Im 22, and in the past 4/5 years suffered excruciating pains from them - to the point of being sick once!! I have to take a ridiculous amount of painkillers to help, and have endured being awake at 1am most nights with period pain for the first 3 or 4 days of my cycle!
They havent always been this bad, but i have been tried on several different contraceptive pills and am currently on Micronor. My family planning clinic told me to double dose this to ensure i didnt have a period and to relieve the pain. This worked up until about 8 months ago, when the pain came back and i was having ridiculously heavy periods (changing a super every 2/3 hours!). Now im struggling with periods every 2 weeks, sometimes heavier than others, and always with pain. My moods are terrible and i still have another 3 weeks until my appointment.
I guess i just feel like im alone. After reading other people's troubles with Endo, i just dont see thats what i have.
I just hope someone can at least tell me this is all sort of normal.
