Hi everyone, I'm 17 and looking for answers and I thought someone on here might be able to help.
I've had my period for 7 years now so I know my body and cycle pretty well. I started taking the Lucette pill around July 2014 due to extreme period pain (vomiting, days off school etc.)
Over the last few months my periods have been unusually heavy and painful, lasting between 8-10 days. Then, after my period in March, I never stopped bleeding but was lighter than a regular period. So I went to see the doctors and they switched me to the Rigevidon pill but there was no change. Now, since Wednesday I have had the worst pains including some sort of bowel spasms leaving me unable to sit, walk or even talk and also pain in my left leg and left side of my back.
(I also have extreme pain during and after sex and also different bleeding after sex)
I have an appointment tomorrow for a pill checkup but I was wondering if I should push my Dr to look further into what this could be eg. endometriosis
I know its a very serious illness and I don't want to jump to conclusions so I was wondering if anyone on here could offer me your thoughts, advice etc. on what this could be and how I can cope with it as normal painkillers (paracetamol, ibuprofen etc.) haven't been helping.
Sorry for the long post, and thanks in advance. Roisin x
