Hi everyone, I was wandering if anyone els has been told "it's just bad period pains and that I'm fine?" I have been struggling with the pain for sometime now and I've been backwards and forwards to the doctors. My fist GP said "take pain killers it's just my period" members of my family agreed with him because he's a doctor and told me to ignore it and think positive even though I've ended up in hospital with the pain. It's only my boyfriend who said there's something not right with me and I should see a different doctor so I did and she said it sounds like endometriosis and referred me to the gynecologist. I'm now waiting to have a laparoscopy which I'm now getting nervous about. I keep thinking what if they don't find anything. It's not that I want endo but I really would like to know what's causing all my problems and that I'm not just imagining it. Has anyone els felt like this before going to have a laparoscopy or about their symptoms in general?
