I am 25 years old and been suffering worse and worse problems with my periods over the last 4 years or so.
It started with prolonged period and now I am in severe pain each month. I feel tired and ill and every emotional. I have bleeding when I pass a stool and when I am on my period the bleeding is in thick, dark clumps. I have also recently had shooting pains in my anus, hips, abdomin and legs. Along with about a million other issues.
I finally got referred to a gyno 6 months ago. I went for an mri last week and am awaiting results. My gyno refused to consider endo and told me my problems were coming from having the contraceptive implant and I should have a coil fitted.
Does this sound like endo? I am worried that if nothing shows on the scan (which I know sometimes it does not) they will fob me off with the implant excuse. What can I do to push this? It's now effecting my life in a big way
