Im 25 years old and I am
new to this page
I suffer from very bad painful periods which are always heavy. I've always had heavy periods and did go to the doctors but they used to give me advice on taking medicine to lower the blood which had side effects such as blood clots and so I didn't take the medication plus the doctors didn't see it as anything they thought it's normal periods and stuff.
I have taken so many days off of work due to feeling unwell, I know the difference between period pains and agony pains where you can not get out the bed. Last year in October I was rushed to hospital and the doctors said it was my periods and sent me home as they could not find anything. However this March I was again rushed into hospital due to vomiting, being in agony and all sorts. The hospital kept me in for a week and I was checked by many other doctors and I was officially diagnosed with endometriosis.
I actually knew all along something was wrong coz it used to effect my day to day life. I didn't feel normal and when I used to get ill my family thought I just didn't want to go work and used to say your always taking days off. But now it's all clear and makes real sense.
I was happy that I have been diagnosed and I know what it is but I'm still tryna get my head around it all. It's new to me and kinda daunting. I don't actually know what band of endometriosis I have but I am taking the pill to shrink it. The doctors have said it's trial and era with the pills.
I have been told I have this forever is this true?
Thank you all for taking the time in reading my post x
