Hi, I'm new to this. Never posted but desperate At 14 I started my periods, having 3 days a month of school with debilitating pain (I'd be sick, go dizzy, get chronic IBS D-type for the first 2 days). They tried me on a bunch of painkillers including codeine (and recently dihydrocodeine) and by 15 I was on Ovranette, then Dianette when my skin went crazy and then Yasmin when my moods declined. On every pill I had lighter periods, hardly any clotting and less pain - if any. 2 years ago, at 23, they found ectropions in my cervix (biggest like a 10p piece) and I came off the pill as this may help them improve (so I was told). Now the pain is back, I get sick, dizzy and sweat - painkillers don't work and if they do it's because they dope me up to much to function. My periods are terribly heavy and I lose clots. My moods are shocking and I feel exhausted and depressed constantly - all motivation has gone. I struggle to sleep solid and start with period like pain before I'm even on. I get IBS-D type almost every morning and I'm routinely taking time off work (on 2 occasions I looked that bad management sent me home - I go pale but am not anemic). They think I have Endo and I'm awaiting a specialist op and potential laparoscopy. The reason for my post is my swabs and ultrasound have showed up nothing - I still have ectropions mind you, but they didn't bleed on my last check. Intercourse is not painful (I read it is with endo?) and my periods aren't totally regular but they aren't far off. I'm dubious about putting myself through a lap if there's a strong chance it isn't endo as it means more time off work - but if it isn't that, then why am I in so much pain... Please help.
