For the past year I've had a strange pulling pain almost like a stitch, the pain comes on day 1 of my period and lasts for the following 3 weeks, I have about 6/7days pain free a month and this has been continuous for the past 12 months. The pain only used to really be noticeable when I was laid down and transitioned from sitting to laying and vice versa, I'd have to sort of turn to my side or hold onto something to make it easier. It's on my right side. I have a 2 year old boy who was delivered by emergency c sec due to a placenta abruption and pre eclampsia so I do have a history of surgery which I know causes adhesions. I went on the contraceptive pill about 6 months ago and at first it seemed to help ease the pain and made everyday life a bit more easier, the only time I'd experience the pain was when I had a 7 day break from the pull for my 'period' but now it doesn't seem to have much affect and I'm back to being in pain about 3 weeks a month. I used to differ with really painful periods and would have days of school and work due to it, however since having my little one my period pain itself has eased a lot! I did have bad back pain for almost a year after having him but just put that down to the spinal block. I'm so scared of doctors I've only just been about a lump in my boob which I've had for 7 months, luckily it was just a cyst but still leaving things so long is stupid I know. Should've killed 2 birds with 1 stone when I had the chance, I'm just scared of going to the doctors about this and either being shrugged off or having to wait ages because I know if it is adhesions or endo it can take ages to be diagnosed. Every time I cough or sneeze now I can feel the pulling pain stitch like feeling. Im 23 next month and just want all this to end or atleast hear other people's opinions for peace of mind and reassurance I'm laid on my side whilst writing this and it's like I can feel it pulsing, sort of a throbbing sensation! Someone please reassure me!
Thanks in advance!
