I had my first gyn appointment today about my constant pains and sometimes bleeding after sex.
She performed a smear, took swabs and did a transvaginal ultrasound. I have feared cervical cancer due to all of the pains and symptoms, however she said my cervix looked healthy and that I shouldn't worry so hopefully that's a good sign? However my ultrasound was totally clear, no cysts or anything except for varicose veins which she said is puzzling considering I'm only 21 and have never had children.
I am in daily pain with dull back ache, shooting pains in hips and quite severe groin pain shooting into my legs and I even have swollen glands in my groin which I imagine is caused by the goings on inside (my urine and previous swabs came back clear)
I just wondered if this could be some form of infection higher up that urine or swabs cannot detect? As I asked the gyno about endo and she said she doesn't think so!? Despite all of my symptoms seeming similar to people on here I have spoken to! I hope she is just unfamiliar with the different ways it can present itself, or could all of my symptoms actually mean something else? I'm in near daily discomfort and now incredibly anxious it's something more sinister or whatever! She has referred me for a laparoscopy in about 6-8 weeks so I'm sure all will come clear then and also need bloods done. Has anyone experienced a totally clear ultrasound and still had endo which caused bad pains? Could adhesions and scar tissue be missed in an ultrasound or would severe endo issues be present in the scan?
Any advice would be great - happy to answer questions and stuff too.
