The last few months I seem to have been passed around from health service to health service. I experience cramp like pain regularly throughout the month, discomfort during intercourse and more recently intense and debilitating pain after intercourse that lasts around 1 hour. I sought help a few months ago but was referred to have an STI test first. At the clinic they suspected I may have Pelvic Inflammatory Disease and gave me a course of nasty antibiotics. My tests for STI's all came back clear and nothing was followed up from there apart from the pain after intercourse soon began.
I went back to my GP who conducted an internal exam, although did not say anything about that, but suspects I may have Endometriosis. I was sent away with an information leaflet and I have been referred for a Scan as he said surgery to find out would cause further complications. However, I have been reading that a scan will not be able to diagnose this condition? I'm wondering why I have been referred for a scan if the Dr suspects I may have this ?
Has anyone else had this experience? I am not sure how to deal with it and feel increasingly teary and anxious about everything since speaking with my Dr last.
Thank your for your time and any guidance
