I have posted previously about my experiences, so if you want a bit of background please check out my other posts. I am 19 and not diagnosed with endo but have plenty of symptoms relating. My periods are extremely heavy and painful, I take tramadol, co-dydramol, mefenamic acid and solpadol usually for the pain - mainly tramadol as it has proved the most effective but doesn't generally work on its own.
So finally after weeks of waiting I went to my gynae appointment, my first one with a proper gynaecologist. I told her my symptoms (nothing really bowel related) and the medications I was currently on. For some reason she kept darting back to this whole thing being down to issues with my bowels? Especially since I told her I get pain when I'm not bleeding along with when I am.
She did bring endometriosis up but told me that it was unlikely to be endo due to the fact I get bloated when I'm not on my period also and the pain at the other times of the month which apparently doesn't happen with endo?!?! I'm honestly so confused.
She did an internal exam and said it was fine even though it hurt and was sore and recommended me to the GP to get the depo injection. I am so so so disappointed after 6 years of going to the GP and getting prescribed countless different contraceptive pills, to go to a specialist and get prescribed another contraceptive and no investigation into anything.
She did at one point come straight out with 'do you want an operation?' which took me aback a bit because who actually WANTS an operation? I said I didn't know, I'm not a doctor but I did want to know what was wrong with me.
I did ask about endo and the future when maybe it comes to having kids but she said if it is endo, the depo will stop the endo from progressing so it is basically a fix, even though I have no diagnosis.
Am I over-reacting or do I have a right to be upset? I'm going to give the depo a go but I feel stressed especially since my work are demanding to know what is wrong with me and I can't give them an answer (see previous post for more info on that).
I just need advice or experiences
