Hi, I've had heavy periods for a number of years now and I was put on the pill to help the situation and it seemed to help for a while. It then started getting more painful when on my period to the point where i'd have to go to bed for several few hours to alleviate the pain. I'm also experiencing very painful intercourse. I went to the docs a few times and was prescribed various medications and referred to a gynaecologist and had a scan but I was told I haven't got endometriosis and i was to take a tablet (can't remember the name) and that would help but been taking it a few months now as and when I'm on my period and it hasn't had any effect whatsoever. Pain is getting worse not better. I read that it is often difficult to diagnose, do you think I should go back to my doctor?
