So I've been going to the doctors for about 4-5 years with my symptoms and haven't been told anything at all.. And I just started to think that maybe the absolute agonising pain I was going through every month was normal for women who have periods.. But then the very heavy blood and large clots started, and it was so I couldn't leave my house for the 9 days (my period lasts I've also had a few times that my period has lasted longer than one month) because one time I did brave it took lots of pain killers and go out of my house and the worst thing happened, even though I had a tampon and a pad fresh in within an hour I'd leaked completely and had no way of changing or cleaning up, I was 16, so embarrassed and scared I didn't know what to do, was the worst day of my life, ever since then even now I'm 21 I don't go out when I'm on, I'm scared its going to happen again and nomatter what type of towels I use nothing holds longer than an hour, the amount of times I've been rushed to a&e from the sheer pain of my periods and been told its constipation was unreal so one day I was in absolute agony and I thought I'd have to go through to hospital and went to the loo before hand so they couldn't say in was constipated.. Low and behold the still said it was my bowels! No matter what I do they don't seem to want to help me, I have doctors again tomorrow and I'm not leaving until I get some answers, I know what I've got and I know the difference between constipation and the pain I have! Which is like no other pain I've ever had, no matter what painkillers they give me which have gone from paracetamol, highest strength cocodamol to tramadol. I'm getting sick of dosing myself up eithnpain killers and having periods that last longer than a week!! I'm just wondering if anyone knows or any advice as toehat I could say to the doctor tomorrow as I have tried most things and they look at me like I'm crazy and I'm getting so sick of it :\ sorry to keep going on and thank you in advance
