I had my first appt with a gynaecologist yesterday and listed all my symptoms which are : painful heavy periods, constant pain lower left pelvic area, pain on ovulation, lower back pain, shooting pain down my legs, constant nausea and constipation I said I don't feel pain during sex but am often in pain afterwards he said it does not sound like a gynaecological problem! I'm confused because after reading a lot about endometriosis this is what had matched my symptoms the most. I'm not sure what my next step should be as both him and my doctor seem to think living with constant pain is ok and that I should just get on with it! Should I push for a lap he said he can't see the point as he thinks it will be clear he did an internal check I said it hurt when he pressed on the left side but he just said yes but you're not leaping off the bed in pain I did end up in bed most of the night in agony from having him poke around though.
I left having spent hours waiting feeling I had totally wasted my whole morning and being made to feel I really shouldn't have bothered them.
