I had my ultrasound this morning, and the doctor said he thinks he can see a small amount of endometriosis (on what i presume was an ovary, although he didn't really tell me much).
He asked for a little history, and i gave it him, also telling him how painful my periods are, and showed him the scars on my belly that i have from using a hot water bottle so close to my belly to relieve the pain. He sort of fobbed me off a little and carried on, and still said that my periods weren't painful - after correcting him on it twice!
I asked what he thought i should do, and he said about the mirena coil as my consultant thought that would help. I explained i didn't really want to rush into it as I've heard it can cause a lot of pain, and he agreed saying it is painful to put in.
That was it. I left feeling completely bewildered as to whats going on down there, and have been told to wait 10 days for my letter from the consultant, but with christmas i imagine it will be mid Jan before i receive anything.
I just feel like now I've finally been diagnosed to have Endometriosis, that I've been fobbed off about how painful they really are to me! Im not one to stand my ground very well and just take what they say as what i should be doing.
Any advice would be great though as i have a doctors appointment in the morning to get some more Micronor (POP Pill), and a clinic appointment tomorrow night to fit a coil (which I'm going to cancel).
