Okay, so my story started in July when I woke up one morning and was suddenly hit with severe pain in my lower abdomen. If I was pregnant , I would've thought I was in labour! I was fitted with the mirena coil in February so I was convinced it was coming out. I was rushed to hospital, and all my tests for pregnancy came back negative and the IUS was perfectly in place. Cut to a few days later and I was still in severe pain so I was rushed back in. I had an ultrasound which they said I had a small cyst that had bled. The doctor wasnt convinced this caused my pain, but I was discharged anyway.
Since then ive had the reoccurring pain, luckily not as severe and it doesnt last as long. My last ultrasound was a month ago and it came back no cysts? But im still getting pain.
My friend suggested endometriosis, which seems to fit apart from one thing. I haven't had periods in 5 years because I was on back to back pills and then straight to the IUS. I read it's pretty hard to develop endo whilst on contraception.
Im having another ultrasound soon but im pretty sure its endo. I just dont want to go through surgery and in the end its not
is it true endometriosis doesnt show up on ultrasound?
The pains feel like a severe cramp and sometimes stabbing pain. They've been an almost daily occurrence since Sept, varying degrees of pain.I sometimes get nausea from it, stress can trigger the painI've had a little bit of bleeding too. It can also be positional, for example if I lie on my stomach or slouch a certain way.
does this relate to anyone? Im only 21 and im scared to ask my doctor about endo in case I get shaken off because I have an IUS.
