I am 25years old and have for the past few years have dealt with some very unexplained pain during intercourse. Had a lot of tests and nothing came of it. Last year I faced my first ever painful period and by painful I mean excruciating. I never linked the 2 together until I had a very bad turn and passed out at work on the first day of my period and was took to a&e. It was at this point I knew something wasn't right. So after a lot of research I came across endometriosis. I have had numerous gp appointments and have seen 2 local gyno's. Both which gave me unhappy answers said I was too young to have surgery and that it would eventually come back with my age. But Iv researched it and it doesn't "come back" it means they never got it all the first time. So eventually I have been referred to the RVI specialist unit and am waiting an appointment. I read a lot of women are not getting diagnosed for years and I am going to push as much as I can to make sure I am not one of those unfortunate people. It is ruining my life and I feel it's best to get it sorted while I am still young!
