Okay, so I've had horrific period pain ever since I started them when I was 12. Surpressed it with contraceptives since I was 14, but them came off them in 2015 at 19. My periods became errictic for about a year, so I had an ultrasound and blood tests. Blood tests came back fine, but ultrasound showed PCOS. That explained my cycle being irregular, but not the pain, so I was reffered to a gyne and went for a lap. Between the ultrasound and lap, I started having pain went I went to the bathroom to wee in the mornings. My cycle became regular again (+- 2 days), but the pain become even worse and started to get symptoms around ovulation (nausea, sharp pain, fatigue etc.)
So I went for a lap two weeks ago. They found that an ovarian cyst had eruptured on it's own, very recently (makes sense as I had a weird pain for about 3 days before) And one spot of endo 'at the back, quite deep' not sure where exactly, but from what I remembered of the picture the consultant showed me and pictures I've seen online, seemed to be through the wall of ligaments into the pouch of duglas on the back. They lasered this off.
With that they discharged me with no further outpatients appointment. He told me to see my gp about a retest of some blood tests, to line up with my cycle.
I got my period three days after my surgery and it was horrific. My flow was definatly decreased, but the pain was so severe and I was knocked out for the entire day.
Despite that, I've made a great recovery from the op and went back to uni a week later.
I saw my GP today for a follow up and explained what they found and about my horrible period since and how I was still having pain in the morning when I went to the bathroom.
She seems to think the next option is to either go back on birth control (which I really don't want due to other symptoms) or have prostap sr injections, which seems a little extreme. She says that yes, the single spot could endicate more they might have missed, but can't be 100%. She sent an email to the consultant about the injections and I'll get these blood tests done when the time comes, but I have no idea how to feel or what the best option is. I'm only 21 and I'm starting my final year at uni, these injections don't sound very pleasant and it's kinda got me a little down as I thought everything would be fine as they didn't find much, not really what I need for final year.
Sorry about the long post, I've tried to keep it concise and I just want some opinions or thoughts on all this.
