Hi, where to begin! I am getting to the point where I am in so much pain and am getting very worried about my health.
I first properly noticed that something wasn't right about 3/4 years ago (I am 22) I have never had regular periods, but didn't see this as a big issue and just dealt with it. About 3/4 years ago intercourse became increasingly painful and I would bleed each time, I went through bouts of bleeding for months to not bleeding for long periods of time, I went to my GP who initially thought endo/PCOS as there is a family history. Had an ultrasound which was clear and was told I was fine and that 'once I had children these things will clear up'.
About another year back and forth to doctors and eventually got referred to gyno at Bupa. Had another ultrasound which was clear and examination etc and was told by gyno to steer clear of contraception as she believed this was causing the bleeding/pain and to keep a diary. Came off contraception 2 and a bit years ago, bleeding during intercourse stopped but pain persisted and irregular periods persisted.
A while later I went to GP after not having a period for 5 months who said she wasn't interested unless I had missed 6 months of periods (lovely woman), had my period the next month so just carried on, never really suffered much period pain before this but my period pain started to get horrendous when I did have a period. Decided after a year of no contraception to give it another go, started on the pill and the bleeding during intercourse returned almost instantly so came off it straight away. That was about 14/15 months ago. Haven't used contraception since.
January 2017 - hadn't had period since November, was in extreme pain one evening out of nowhere which resulted in a huge bleed that night (wasn't a period as just lasted a few hours) and was quite traumatic. Since then about every 6 weeks, I wake up in the morning with a niggling pain in my right hip, by the end of the day the pain has spread across the right of my abdomen and is just horrendous, it goes right up my ribs and across to my navel, I can hardly move and its very tender to touch on the right of my navel. This only lasts a day then the pain goes. I just had this happen on Saturday for roughly the third time since January. Attempted intercourse the first time I suffered this pain and it was extremely painful. I find it painful to urinate in my lower abdomen and have suffered with diarrhoea/bleeding also and suffer a lot of hip and rib pain daily, also very bloated constantly :(((
I feel I am getting nowhere with GP's etc as I am getting dismissed and being told that once I have babies my body will sort itself out and that's what normally happens with these things but I can't face any more pain! Does this sound like it could be endo ladies??
