Hi, I have an appointment with my GP this week where I will request to be referred to a gynaecologist for my very painful periods.
I have suffered from extremely painful periods since my teens. (Vomiting, severe muscle pains which last at least 2 days). I went on the pill at 16 which reduced the pain slightly but not much. I came off the pill last year as I am trying to conceive. Since being off the pill the excruciating period pains have returned and it is affecting my life. I've missed a lot of time off work because of this and I fear the pain and absence from work will only get worse.
There is a history of women in my family (my mother, two sisters and an aunt) so I'm concerned I may also have this. My second concern is that these painful periods may be what has affected my husband and I from conceiving.
Can anyone please recommend me a London clinic/Gynaecologists where you have had good experiences?
Thanks a lot for your help
