Hi I'm new to this so sorry if i do anything wrong.
sorry its going to be a long one
i will start with a little history. i started my periods when i was 7 first year they were ok after that it all went down hill every month i would disappear for about 10 days i would bleed very severely using night pads in the day and extreme pain couldn't move mum took me to the doctors who said we can put her on the pill that should help mum said no she didn't want me on the pill because i was so young (mum never had any pain so she didn't understand) so growing up i missed quite a lot of school. mum took me back to the doctors when i was 14 she doc put me on the pill and said she thought it could me endometriosis so i was put on microgynon this was ok i could manage to go to school with very strong painkillers and get my GCSEs. when i was 16 i when to the doctors and asked for something to get rid of my periods i hated them and started to hate my body. The doc put me on cerazette best thing in the world of me i love it it stopped my periods completely I've not had one for 9 years. the world endometriosis totally forgotten about
back to now i got my letter to go for my first smear to ok that cool they need to be done yes it might feel funny but fine. she started to put the speculum in and i through no thats not a funny feeling it hurts as he pushed it in more i yelled for her to stop it was like she was stabbing me with a knife I've never been in so much pain in my life. she was very good and we tried 3 times after that she refused to do it anymore she could see the pain i was in but she didn't know why it would hurt so much. she did manage to get a swab to check for infection incase it was that.
So I'm not waiting for the results of that test I've had no other symptoms of an infection. So i was look on the internet why it would hurt so much and boom the word endometriosis was back.
Does anyone else get this type of pain when having a smear and what do you do about it.
