Ive been suffering with very painful periods and pain and bleeding during/after sex for years, and now I have this on/off excruciating stabbing pain coming from my lower abdomen. I also have bowel problems with constipation and diarrheoa cycles, with pain and discomfort daily. Passing wind or going to the toilet usually gives me some relief from the pain. The last few weeks have been absolute hell! I had internal and external ultrasounds which came back clear, but I went for my gynae appointment today, and she suspects endo. She couldn't feel any nodules but said that where i was experiencing pain (at the neck of the womb) was typical for endo and a lot of my symptoms matched. So she is sorting me out with a lap. I was wondering if anyone had experienced symptoms like this, and found them to disappear or for it turn out NOT to be endo? I'm 25, and studying at uni, with my exams coming up, and this has been so stressful, I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing with going ahead with the lap.
Also has anybody ever had experience with the gynae department at the Royal Hallamshire in Sheffield? Am I in good hands for a lap there?
Freaked out and pretty worried
Any advice will be super helpful so thanks in advance!
