Hi everyone, to cut a long story short I had my little girl 3years ago. I went back on the pill (I've been on some form of contraception since I was 16-now 29) and i started spotting. It turns out I was reacting badly to the microgynon pill and had a cervical ectropian. During the tests I had to discover this they spotted a number of cysts on my right ovary and said it might be PCOS and to see the doctor if I had problems conceiving again or other symptoms. To stop the spotting I came off the pill and discovered for the first time that my periods are very irregular (23 days to 78 but averaging 56). During my period it ranges from light to heavy and on occasion can be very painful but sometimes ok. I also always get a funny tummy and have been previously told.its probably ibs. Since then i've had another baby and now he's 6months I starting a period that just didnt stop! With it I've had bad pelvic pain which is so bad sometimes I just want to curl up on the sofa. I had another scan which showed nothing abnormal except it highlighted the cysts on my ovaries again. The doctor mentioned it could hormonal but also mentioned endometriosis. For now I've just been prescribed progesterone only pills but the more I read about endometriosis the more I think that might be what it is. The pelvic pain seems to ease off when I take the progesterone pills but if I take one late I can feel it creeping back again. I have also experienced pain during sex. Its not all the time but it can feel almost tender and bruised up on the right hand side (where the cysts are on my ovaries). Does anyone have experience with anything like this? From people that have been diagnosed does this sound like the things you have been suffering with? These pills might help the problem but I would really like to know what's causing it not just mask the symptoms!
