For years I have been complaining of extremely heavy periods, I have iron-deficiency anaemia as a result of the amount of blood I lose and the pain is excruciating. After being fobbed off with different contraceptive pills and stronger painkillers for years I was finally referred for an ultrasound. I (and my family) think i have endometriosis, and were almost certain that’d be the diagnosis but the result of the ultrasound was a cyst one one of my ovaries which “will probably go away soon, so we’ll do another scan in a month or so”.
Has anyone else had this but it's led to a diagnosis of more serious problems? Should I keep pushing for more tests? I just can’t believe that the awful pain and other symptoms i’m Experiencing are ‘normal’ when I usually can’t even get out of bed on the first two days of my period!
Sorry, long post but i’m Desperate!
