Hi all, I’m wondering if you could help me.
I had a laparoscopy in 2015 due to suspected endometriosis after experiencing painful sex and bleeding. I’ve always suffered with bad period pains which I thought was “normal” To the point where I am lay on the sofa in agony.
I came off the pill in February 2017 after me and my partner decided we was ready to start a family. Although I still had bad period pains whilst being on the pill, since being off it, the pain is awful but I will say, they are regular (28 day cycle usually).
Unfortunately I had a miscarriage at the end of November (I was about 5 weeks so very early). After reading on the internet about endometriosis symptoms, I’m sure my period pains are not normal. I have been prescribed mefenamic acid which does ease the pain but I am still very uncomfortable to the point where I am crying and rolling around, feeling sick, hot, cold etc. Without these tablets, I cannot move at all. Is this normal? I am 21 years age, fit, normal weight etc no major health problems. I was concerned about how long it took me to conceive considering my age & health and then now of course I’m worried that it’s endometriosis which has caused the miscarriage?... I absolutely dread my period every month! Although I visited the doctor in September, she reassured me that my period pains are normal but I am not convinced!
Is it worth me requesting another laparoscopy or should I be patient and wait?
Thank you xx
