i started my period when i was 13 from the age of 16 i begun getting extreme pain to the point that for the first couple of days i couldnt move and for the rest of the duration (however long it wants to be for that month) id be doubled up on meds and have severe stomach cramps, i thought it was normal, had noone who had a similar experience to say that it isnt, so i carried on till i was 18 with nothing said about it then i found a leaflet about endo and my symptoms were so alike i got scared and went to the doctors they said it was nothing sent me for a bloodtest and noticed my iron was low so i have been going to the doctors for about a year now complaining of my extremely bad periods and they said they think its more than likely to be endo, but they seem so ignorant about it. I say the pain im in and they just keep prescribing me with pills, im currently taking microgynon which is making me worse, i have cramps all month long, bled for 3 weeks straight now, i went for my ultrasound transvaginal last week and they said that my right ovary was cloudy but everything seemed ok, but it hurt so much when she put it towards my right ovary, i went back to my doctor the day after as i had a scheduled appointment and she said everything is fine nothing to worry about, i said well what about endo she said that everything seems fine but i should carry on with my pill untill my other doctor has said to, so i said ok but im missing so much time of college and its beginning to affect me mentally now, i am seeing a therapist because as hard as other things are i cant deal with everyone thinking im a liar, everyone thinks im a hypochondriac who is having a bad period????? but its not just bleeding, i am now aneamic because when i do have a period i bleed so heavy for so long, almost 3 weeks a time, im sick and tired of having to put up with this pain and then having my doctors be so ignorant, my teachers think im putting it on to have time off and even my mum thinks i do it to get out of chores, its ridiculous now, how happy i would be to rather do chores than to put up with this pain they do not understand!!!! i have stomach cramps, dizzy spells where i will faint i cant have a bath too hot or it will make my pains get worse, i know this is gross but when i am on the first two days of my period i get diarrhea and am sick alot, its like i either sit on the toilet crying because im in pain because im too scared to move or im in bed curled up in pain wishing like someone would just put me to sleep to take the pain away, its so scary as im only 19 and i really hate being alone in this
