i finally had my first Gynae appointment yesterday to discuss my painful and irregular periods. We went through my history first, and then he felt my tummy, and did an internal exam. He said he couldnt feel anything, but i wasnt sure if he would anyway.
He's passed me onto radiology, as he now wants me to have an External and Internal Ultrasound (which sounds horrifying), to see if he can see any Endometriosis, cysts or anything else.
He also gave me a sheet explaining a Laproscopy, and also a leaflet for the Mirena Coil.
Has anyone had the coil put in due to their ridiculously irregular and painful periods? As ive heard its absolute hell for several months.
Just not sure whether once they have done the ultrasound they will actually find anything. Im really worried that if they dont, then i'll just be passed back to my GP to just give me more painkillers.
If anyone's experienced the internal ultrasound or the coil then it'd be great to hear from you to put my mind at ease.
Thank you xx
