Hi everyone, i'm a newbie on this site and just wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same as me.
I'm seventeen years old and have had horrible period pains for as long as i could remember. Some of what i go through are: heavy periods for the first 2-3 days, pain in the pelvic area, large blood clots, blood spotting in urine, painful bowel movements and have this immense pressure in the back passage where i feel like i need to go to the toilet but really don't.
Also, recently i have been getting pain in the lower part of my stomach ( sometimes on my right side too) and that same pressure in the back passage, when i'm not even on my period.
I've have been to my GP quite a few times and was told to take mefenamic acid and when that didnt work, ibuprofen then co-codamol and then to go on the pill ( which i didnt want to but am considering) and now she gave me naproxen.
None of them have helped as much as i would have that they would but i am yet to try out naproxen.
I dont know how i should feel when my GP says its normal so the pain will pass as i grow older and whoever else i talk to don't experience this sort of pain. Maybe i might be exaggerating my pain?
i would be extremely grateful if i could get advice on this please .
