Just wanted to say Happy New Year first of all.
Going to get straight to it, how are your bowel movements as mine over the past 7-8 months have become so painful when I pass a stool. Going to the doctors on the 5th as I previously had bleeding but that stopped over a 2 week period and during that time I visited the doctor and they werent concerned as we all thought it had stopped but it has come back, nastier than before, blood and all.. the blood over the past week has stopped but now my stool smells horrid! worse than normal poo and has a very metallic smell (sorry if tmi).
During December my GP got a letter back from the gyn saying I needed to go to a GU clinic and get all the tests done because 'I'm a teenager and sexually active, probably not safe.' so the whole typical teen thing because I am 16 (17 in 2 days) but I visited on the 19th, had all the tests done, all the swabs... first proper tests I have had done in the whole 5yrs I've been going to and from the doctors in agony. At the end of that, the lady wanted me to come back and get an internal examination from a doctor at the clinic.. went back on the 30th and have to say it was absolute agony D: she said it all points towards endo and she will be writing to my GP to get the referral pushed forward again as she believes they are stupid for sending me to the clinic when it is obviously not something sexually contracted as I have been having the pains since my periods started when I was 10, but didnt visit the doctors until I was 11. So back to the GP it is.
Sorry for such a weird personal question but I know bowels can be affected by endo and passing stools is a big part in some peoples pain. Thank you.
