I am new to the forum so let me introduce myself quickly.
I'm 28 and I have been suffering with my ovaries for as long as I can remember. I had painful, irregular periods from the start (when I was 11) and I have been on pretty much every sort of contraception you can imagine to make me feel "better". I also had cysts on both ovaries but never had surgery to remove them.
I am currently on Noriday and I am experiencing bad pain in my lower left groin. The doctor thought it was an hernia (but no hernia was found there), then I had a ct scan and a flexible sigmoidoscopy that didn't show anything. The pain is still there and getting worse.
My mum had some adhesion some while back so I told my gp and that's just then that she told me about endometriosis and that my pain could come from that as I also have other symptoms that matches (pain during sex, bleeding between periods, etc).
She reffered me to see a gynaecologist but not a specialist in endometriosis.
I know I'm just at the beggining of my journey but I am already lost.
How long will I have to wait to see someone that could actually help me? I'm worried and I can't stand waking up in pain every day.
I hope that you could share with me your experience.
Thanks in advance
