Hi everyone im Jade, im 19 years old and since about 15years of age ive had terrible periods that have lasted for about 2 to 3 week and had pain mostly in my right side pelvic/hip area. Its like a dull ache with sharp twinges mostly its is in my righy hip and leg but when really bad is also on my left side aswell, I also get twinges and cramping pains in my tummy under my belly button, these pains dont last for long and sometimes they are painful but other times they are hardly anything. I take paracetamol and ibuprofen but it doesn't get rid of any of the pains especially period pains as they are the worst, sometimes I cant stand up or move about they are that bad. I was told at 16 that I had pcos and was put on dianette, these pills didnt help with any of the symptoms, at about 18 i was put on yasmin and whilst it helped regulate my periods I was still getting a lot of period pain and leg pains, they sent me for a scan on my ovaries which came back clearso I dont actually have pcos. I also started getting pain when I have sex, a deep pain inside and also bleeding after sex so they said it was because of my pill they changed me onto mercillon. Ivr benn on it for about 6monts now and my periods have dramatically changed I bleed for one day but its really heavy and I get a lot of pain, and ob the second day I get a lot of dark brown/black stringy blood clots also with pain. Im at a loss and dont know what to do as the doctors are blaming my symptoms on the pill im taking I dont want to come off it as I know my periods will be worse than they are now. My partner says I also have really bad mood swings especially the week before and during that im on my period. Can anyone please help me. I also hacw symptoms of ibs but I never associated with periods as my dad suffers from it. I have recently started feeling sick while eating and getting pain in my lower back.
Thanks Jade xxx
