Hi, I have never been diagnosed with endometriosis, as I declined a laparoscopy years ago, and have been surviving on monthly NSAIDS ever since. Now, I've got severe bowel issues recently, went to A&E twice last week because of blood in my stools and heavy cramps. This is happening in between my periods, so I didn't make the connection immediately, but there may be a connection. Can you get blood in your stool with endometriosis? I will be getting a colonoscopy some time soon, and wonder what that will show. My second question is, how to treat my severe period pain with anything else apart from NSAIDS? I think you really shouldnt take NSAIDS if your bowel is severely upset. Ah and third question: where do I go from here? Should my GP refer me to a gynecologyst?
I hope they will, eventually. Have been asking for a year now!
