Tender / bruised like feeling

Hi ladies,

I haven't posted on here for a while because I had surgery at the beginning of the year and for the past 3 months or so I have been pain free.

But on Wednesday I had what I thought felt like period cramps. And by Thursday they had gotten so bad that my belly was bloated and I had to call in sick at work.

The bloating has now gone down but my left hand side feels very tender. Almost like my insides are bruised. It is very sore when I move about. I have never experienced this type of pain before. Also when I press the area it hurts, I haven't done anything to injure myself. So no physical activity or anything.

Some background history:

I have had several large endometriomas, all of which have been removed during my last two laps.

I have the mirena coil fitted (was fitted in January of this year) and haven't had a period since the 13th June.

I don't really know what to do. Should I be worried? Has anyone else experienced this type of pain? I know I won't get a doctors appointment for at least 2 weeks. So seems pointless making one. Plus my GP has never been understanding when it comes to my endometriosis. And my next appointment with my consultant isn't until September.

I am scared that another endometrioma has developed or something has happened to the coil (I googled and frightened myself)
