Hi ladies I'm new here. Just wanting some advice please. I had an emergency c section in November 2013 my first child I was 29.since then iv been on the depo injection and femodette pill aswel as breast feeding till may this year. (My periods have always been bad since they started and iv always been in and out of hospital with stomach pains nothing ever really found) my periods started being irregular before they were bang on every 28 days once I stopped the pill in November but since I completely stopped breast feeding they got irregular. My lower back is in constant pain. I started getting left breast pain shooting and aching iv developed cystic acne from November bloating stabbing pains. Lumps around my c section scar and a tender two lumps just under my belly button to the right .Severe ovulation pain never felt nothing like it can't sit without shooting pains up both ends. Dragging pain in lower abdomen can barely walk stomach bloats up bad it's awful for a good few days and then I get ibs recently diagnosed with it. Always tired since a kid but more recently since may it's really weird iv got vitamin d3 and folate deficiency. I went to docs and explained my symptoms after having that crazy ovulation pain again and reading that a lot of women get misdiagnosed with ibs. I told her I think I might have endo my aunt had it and my cousin just been diagonosed with it. She did a pelvic exam that came back fine swabs were clear internal was unbearable she sent me to hospital thinking I had a cyst that burst or my appendix. They did ultrasound next day some fluid in pouch of Douglas and nothing else. Sent away with painkillers and referral for gp to make to gynae. Do you think I should try and find a gynae who specializes in endo and will I be able to do that on the e-referals system I'm in Leeds and would like to know if I could go to a hospital that has gynaes that know about this I just don't want to be in a situation that so many people have been in and take ages to get sorted out. We really would like more children. Thanks in advance for any replies
