Hi , I'm hoping someone can help.. I've always had really heavy periods and bad period pain. I fell pregnant and had pre-eclampsia, an emergency c-section and placenta abruption, for months after I wasn't on contraception and one day at work suddenly had a strange pain on the right side of my lower abdomen. First I thought I'd pulled a muscle or had a stitch, then the pain just didn't seem to go away. Every month the day before my period the pain would return and last til day 21 of my cycle. The pain was and still is localised. I got on with it and didn't contact my doctor purely because of worry as to what it could be causing my pain. I went to the doctor and asked to go on the combined pill. I noticed that my pain had gone for the 3 weeks of taking the pill but would return during my period week. I decided to go to the doctors and explained everything as I was having abnormal bleeding whilst taking the pill and she sent me for examinations and a pelvic ultrasound which came back clear. Nothing was done or said after the results came back clear but I'm still suffering. I restorered to taking my pill packets back to back and having a period every 3 months but it no longer keeps my pain at bay and still feel it every day, when I sit up in bed or sneeze it pulls, I don't notice it every day now but not sure if I was just getting that used to living with constant pain. My periods aren't heavy and I don't suffer period pain anymore apart from the pain this post is about but I'm assuming that's down to the pill which has calmed my periods.
Can anyone tell me if this maybe sounds like endemtriosis or if they've experience something similar.. My doctor asked what I thought it could be and I did say endemetriosis and she agreed it could be. I'm only 24 and do want more children I'm just worried if when me and my partner try it might be harder this time around.
Thank you in advance x
