Big hello to all of the community! I am new around these parts, though I have offered from age 11 with severely heavy periods and pain, eventually being diagnosed with endo age 21 (really had to push for it though!)
Bit worried just lately, had my more a coil out in Feb after i started getting severe stabbing pains and bright red blood (had been using coil successfully for 8 years and had no periods in that time it was blissful!) I had an implant fitted instead as contraception and to attempt to stop my endo flaring back up. Since then I have started getting periods again but not only are they now bright red in colour as opposed to the usual darker colour, they are becoming more frequent and lasting longer each time. Currently on day 12 after only a 2 week gap :/ also having trouble with tampax working their way out or coming out bent and I am pretty sure I can feel a lump on my cervix, last smear was fine though so not sure what that's all about.
please excuse the essay, I am just becoming very exhausted, frustrated and a bit worried by whether this is all endo related or could be something else...
any advice would be very much appreciated xxx
