just had an ultra sound scan after being referred by my GP. As expected nothing to be seen, but the doctor that did the scan told me I need a referral to see a gyne.
I suffered my entire adult life with terrible period pain, back pain, stabbing pains up my bottom, fatigue, terrible pmt.
I am 34 and am lucky to have two children, I really struggled to conceive number two. I was referred for some investigations but fell pregnant and everything stopped. I felt that because I had managed to have children most gp's just think get on with it and stop moaning.
Anyway my current surgery I have been with for 18 months, and I have changed my pill 3 times to try and
Control my symptoms. Two doctors at the surgery said they think I have endo. But if the pill can control symptoms there is no reason to do Anything else. My concern is That in the last few years I experience bleeding from my bottom just before my cycle , and more and more I experience pain and bleeding During sex.
The docs want me to have a coil fitted but I am so worried about having one fitted still not knowing if I have endo it not.
My surgery called to say my scan was all clear so I needed to do nothing, but I asked to see a doctor again as I am going to ask for a referral.
I understand you can get endo on the bowel and I worry that could be why I bleed from bottom, but also worry about just doing nothing as long term what damage is being done??!!
Sorry for long rant. Am I doing the right thing. I am just so fed up and exhausted now with the whole thing. I just want to know one way or the other. I don't want to have to take the pill forever as I am at increased risk of breast cancer as we have the gene in our family so continual hormones are not ideal, but I can't come off as the pain is unbearable, but my cycle is so unpredictable too.
