Hello, I'm 22 and believe I may have symptoms of endo
I had an ectopic pregnancy 2 years ago which was treated with one shot of methotraxate. I was told by my doctor that the likely cause of this was because I was prescribed TWO morning after pills due to a mistake by another doctor (there was an investigation into his mistake). Apparently a pregnancy due to failed contraceptive pills increases the chance of an ectopic, so the fact I had a double dose was the suggested reason behind the ectopic. I had ultrasound scans after this and I was told everything looked in perfect working order.
Before and the years after I had not had any problems and didn't worry any more about it however the last 6 months have just not felt right around my ovaries.
Every month pretty much a few days after my period finishes I get strange tugging, pressure, heaviness, pinching and shooting sensations on both sides where my ovaries are. Sometimes it feels almost tickely. It is also followed by aching right under my hip bones. I would not describe it as painful as it is only very slight. I also get slight back ache with this. I don't know whether this is simply ovulation however.
The second symptom is rather new and has only happened once. A month ago I was having sex with my partner and we had to stop as I suddenly felt a horrific pain deep inside me, the pain was the worst I have ever felt and I nearly vomited from how bad it was. It lasted for about 15 minutes before going away. We had sex the next day and the same thing happened after, although it was slightly less painful. My doctor said this may be bruising from hitting my cervix as he is quite well endowed but I am sceptical about this as I have never experienced this pain with him, and the sex was no deeper or rougher than usual. We have had sex regularly since then, in the same way and I have not had this pain since.
My periods are regular and never heavy and I have only slight cramping, certainly nothing notable however I used to never get period pain so it has definitely increased slightly. I do however get diareah with my periods which happens nearly every cycle and has since I first started. In-between my last cycle I bled brown blood for about a week (something thats never happened) and then my normal period arrived a week or so later. I was so concerned by this and the strange sensations in my ovaries that I took about 5 pregnancy tests, paranoid my pill might have failed and I was expering an ectopic again. I am definitely not pregnant
I have no pain with passing stools or urinating at all.
I also suffer from fatigue, however I also have depression and used to suffer from ME 5 years ago, so again it could be a mixture of things.
Due to the fact I am desperate for a large family when I'm older I am praying it is not endo, but I feel it may be
A doctor said to me the pain and aches I feel might be scarring from my ectopic, which she said would improve as I get older. (I don't plan on having children until my 30's)
I have also been looking at the chance of ovarian cysts and pelvic inflammatory disease which also has very similar symptoms. I have tried to persuade my doctor to test me for PID but after doing a test for sexually transmitted diseases (all came back negative) she dismissed the idea of me possibly having it.
I am very concerned as I feel something is not right and any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
