Hi everyone, I have several symptoms which all seem to point to Endometriosis. For the last year (possibly longer) I've been going to the doc asking for answers but every time I have been fobbed off. They have told me that they suspect I have ibs. The food I eat does not affect my symptoms at all so I think this is complete rubbish! In summer I had period pain so bad - for some reason the pain increased 5 times over at night time each evening - that I went to the doc and refused to leave until they referred me for a pelvic ultrasound. The ultrasound was inconclusive. At the time I was not dating anyone - for the first time in almost a year I am now dating someone and I am in a lot of pain during sex - like a deep, burning pain.
I also bleed during a bowel movement and have a lot of discomfort during a bowel movement too. Sometimes I can not even pass a stool - only a blood-or white-coloured mucus. Sorry if this is too much information! During my period however the blood in my stool is so much heavier. The doctor told me that my period would not affect the amount of blood in my stool - but I'm the one experiencing it so I know it does!!
Apart from that one time in summer my periods have not been too painful - actually they've been surprisingly light since then however every now and then during my period when I urinate I pass a clear substance - I think I've read somewhere that this could be a lining?
So sorry for super long message but I just want to know if these are symptoms you've all experienced? Should I push my GP for a laparoscopy?
