I have found my way to this forum to see if anyone has been through similiar to me.
A couple of weeks ago I started to get lower abdominal pain (a dull ache/cramp on the left side) after my period. It was constant for three days and really starting to worry me so I wnet to the GP. They asked lots fo questions and examined me. Confirmed they could feel some swelling but no lumps.
I have referred for a vaginal utrasound and also had blood tests, as well as doing urine and swab tests for infection, pregnancy and STIs. Nothing abnormal was picked up on the ultrasound and the tests came back fine.
I am still feeling the same pain, alhtough it now seems to shift over the centre of the pelvis or be on the right side occassionally.
I have also had bloating during this time and more discharge which sometimes gushes out. Both are unusual for me.
The only thing that I can conclude is that maybe I have endometriosis. But would the symptons come on suddenly like that?
I have read that the only way to get truly diagnosed is through a laparoscopy. I am worried the doctors will want to watch and wait first but I can't cope with having this pain every day. The area the pain is in ccauses me great stress as I want to start a family in the next couple of years (I am 30 at the moment).
If anyone can give any thoughts or guidance on this I'd be so grateful!
