Hi all- I went to my dr yesterday. I had an ultrasound about a month ago which showed a small cyst on my right ovary but was told it was nothing to worry about and another ultrasound needed to be done in 3 months to double check. I’ve had extremely severe periods and severe period pain since I was about 15 and its only got worse over the years (i’m now 20). When I spoke to my dr yesterday I expressed my concerns that endometriosis can’t always be seen on an ultrasound but she said just to wait and see what the outcome of the next ultrasound is in March/April. However, I began my period yesterday afternoon and I am in severe pain. I cannot move, I can’t walk. The pain is literally making me Cry. Does anybody have any advice? I just don’t know what to do anymore, I am literally desperate.
Medications: i am on the highest dosage of ferrous fumerate, 1 folic acid tablet a day, and have just been put on the pill (not the combined one). This is as well as taking the maximum dose of ibuprofen daily whilst on my period.
