Hi - have a look at my post on endo to see if you identify with the symptoms and how to find a specialist x


First thing is to say that you definitely are not the only one. I usually bleed a bit when they take swabs. Each time, I've been referred to a gynae clinic at the hospital, only to find repeat tests come back fine. I'm sure lots of the ladies on here will say that they have had a similar moment of worry.

Secondly, your doctor, as brilliantly skilled as GPs are, is not a gynae expert and so referring you to someone who is a specialist, who can investigate further and get answers for you is actually a really good thing. The gynae team will be able to look closely at your problems and advise treatment if needed.

So even though it may seem scary, it's actually a good thing that you were brave and saw your doctor.

Have you got anyone that you can talk to? It might be worth confiding in someone, a family member or a good friend? I always find it helps to talk it through with someone close.

Best of luck x
