I am 24 and having my first lap on Monday. I have had really pad periods since my first at 11, they have made me throw up, faint and at times black out from pain. My first gynae dissuaded me from getting a lap at 17 and just changed my pill as she felt I was too young it it was unlikely to be endometriosis.
I have been on the pill on and off (mostly on) for 10 years now and in the last few months, my periods have been increasingly painful (almost like without the pill) I have had bleeding after sex (sometimes a lot sometimes just spotting) and my periods pretty much come whenever they please, usually every two weeks and lasting up to 10 days.
I feel like my whole life revolves around my menstrual cycle but am worried that when I get my lap it is going to be clear. I have had a clear pap smear and two clear ultrasounds. Some doctors have said it may just be the way I am.
I guess I'm just really anxious and looking for assurance from others who have had similar symptoms!
