I have only recently heard about endometriosis and have just been Dr's becuase I have nearly every symptom. I haven't been taken seriously whatsoever. For years I have had pain during and after sex, in the pelvic area, but never thought much of it becuase I didn't know it was not normal. For about 4 years I have been on the contraceptive injection and recently came off and went on the pill. My period came and I used tampons and had agonising pain in my pelvic area when inserting, and I knew this wasn't right and that's when I found out about endometriosis. I wouldn't have worried too much if I hadn't seen that one of the symptom can be bleeding from the bowel. I have suffered from this for years and have had every test going and nothing has come back. This is when I started to worry. But now the Dr's has told me it's very unlikely as the majority of women don't get it in the bowel and that the colonoscopy that I had would have shown it up, but I've read that actually it won't show It up. I just want to be taken seriously, I'm constantly tired, can't enjoy being intimate with my fiancé, have pelvic pain when I'm not on, and bleed from my bowel with no other explanation for it. After getting annoyed that I wasn't being taken seriously I have been referred to have an ultrasound on my womb, but i fear this may not be enough either to detect if I have endometriosis. I feel like it's too much of a coincidence to not be it but yet I'm being told it's unlikely. I need help and advice or others experience. Can a colonoscopy detect it? Will an ultrasound detect it? Am I worrying over nothing? Have others not been taken seriously? I just don't know what to do. Help!
