Hi I stumbled across this whilst looking up possibilities for my pain, hopefully someone may be able to help me.
So I am 36 and have been on the pill since I was 18 and then six months ish ago my periods went from being 3 days to barely even half a day, my doctor took me off pill just after Christmas and since then I have had pains on and off. I got a period app to help me track periods and I noticed that my pains were around ovulation?
I went to see gp (not my usual one) and she said it's just ovulation pain might take a while to settle, really is this what people can get I've never heard of it?? I never had when I was younger.
Anyways my pain seems to be generally around ovulation and I will start with pains on my left side lower abdomen like a throbbing lasting around 24-48 hours sometimes on my right as well and then after this I get pain like in centre right above my bone like it's my front muscle and it feels like a have pulled something so it hurts when walking and feels like my bladder is full very sore pain again around 24 hours.
My periods are around 2 days now and are proper red blood not really heavy but did have a little spotting last month 2 days after period finished.
I generally felt good in myself coming off the pill but the pains are awful - could it be endo???
My mum had it horribly and ended up with historectomy but her symptoms were very different to me
