Hi there, I'm new to this forum and need some advice. I've had extremely painful periods since my periods started 15 years ago. I have constant lower back pain, nausea, fatigue, bad pms, spotting between cycles, headaches, shooting pain when going the loo when I'm on my period, I can't use tampons as I get sharp pains when pulling it out (sorry tmi) , vaginal aching during ovulation and my period, IBS lots of gas bloating etc... I'd never heard of endometriosis until today when a gynaecologist said he's 99% sure I have it. I've just googled the symptoms and I do have a few of them, I was diagnosed with dysmenorrhea when I was younger and put on the pill so I assumed it was all the norm. I'm just a bit confused as I've conceived two beautiful children within a couple of months and I've just read that infertility is a big issue with endometriosis, and pain during sex? The only pain I have during intercourse is a sharp pain that lasts a couple of seconds then goes away but I've never thought anything of it. I've got to take the contraceptive pill for 3 months without a break then go back to see the consultant. If my symptoms go then that will confirm endo. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Any help at all would be appreciated as I feel a bit overwhelmed today xxxx
