Hello all, i'm new here so this is my first time posting, sorry for long post in advance!
When I was a teenager I had very heavy periods (clots etc..) when I was around 17 I starting taking cerazette which stopped them completely.
I am now 24. In July 2015 I started bleeding randomly throughout the months. Doctor suggested coming off cerazette to see if it would help. Well in that time I fell pregnant.
Fast forward to March 2016 year, I had an emergency c section and since then my periods have been absolutely horrendous and seem to be worsening with each one.
The symptoms I have are:
My cycles last anywhere from 35-50 days.
Very intense cramps which I get sometimes 3 weeks before any bleeding even happens. It's at its worst in the first week of bleeding (mostly first few days, even if its just 'brown' blood) I will be awake at 4am crying and pain killers don't make any difference.
I feel sick and light headed
Whenever me & partner dtd - afterwards I get a real painful deep ache in my pelvis/under lower belly area which also radiates across my lower back and along my cesarean incision.
Lower belly feels sensitive to touch
Bleeding last 2-3 weeks
Bad back ache
I lose old blood before new
Overall I just feel crap. It's really getting me down now, i feel so irritable and very angry/crying all the time when my periods start. They never used to be like this I just don't know whats going on.
I've had an ultrasound to look at my ovaries and there was a small cyst but apparently this was a 'normal' cyst and they will re scan in 3 months.
In all honestly am I over reacting or does this sound like it could be endometriosis? or something similar.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
