Hi, Im 19 and have had painful periods for as long as i can remember, symptoms that I have are Painful Cramps, blood clots, bloating, diarrhoea during periods, painful intercourse, ovarian pain, heavy periods etc... About a year ago i said id had enough of feeling this way, a trip to the doctor and i was told i had IBS like all Endometrosis suffers do. I was told to eat better and get regular exercise, after this not working I chose to self diagnose, first thing that came up was Endometriosis, this is something my Auntie and my cousin have and became a reality. I contacted my doctor and told him what i found and he sent me off for a ultrasound. Finding nothing i started to doubt myself that all these symptoms I'm having relate to this. With my mum even doubting me and saying its all in my head, i booked my own gynaecologist appointment and went by myself. He did a pelvic exam and ever touch hurt more and more. After him saying that its all in my head to i decided to go on the Mirena IUD, i have been on this for 2 months now and no help!!! Even heavier periods, pain constantly, i can't even go to work, and now blood coming out of my Rectum???? I feel lost and that i have no one who understands, or that can help. Im starting to even doubt myself if i even have it. The hospital won't do a Laparoscopy as i haven't tried everything possible before i do this. I feel exhausted and tired all the time and the pain is debilitating and i can't continue with this alone. what if i don't even have it and i have spend all this money and time? but this pain can't be normal can it?? HELP!!
