Hello everyone! I'm new here an new to the term endometriosis and I would be grateful for some advice. I started my periods at 12 years always extremely heavy and painful to the point of missing school, at 18 it was recommended I try the pill which at that point I was willing to try anything whilst in the pill I gained 3 stone in weight an had other health problems at 22 I came off the pill as my pituarity gland was extremely raised an since my problems have became increased worse I am having 12 days long periods with no time frame I either have them every 2 weeks or monthly they are heavy but the first 4 days I pass old dark blood, I am unable to get out of bed due to extreme tiredness I also am noticing other symptoms as for now I am on my 2nd referal to the hospital but I keep hitting brick walls with no answers! So I was wondering if anyone had any advice as my gp thinks it could be endometriosis but thr hospital would test me for it? Any advice would be helpful! Thank you all in advance!
