Hey I’m Sarah 25 years old.
I started my periods very early on at 10 years old and ever since then I’ve had bad period pain & heaviness. Anyway they put me on the pill when I was about 15/16 until I was 23 as it did not improve symptoms.
Anyway every month I’m extremely heavy bleeding and the pain is just crazy to the point I can’t control it and I’m being sick ending up going to a&e for strong painkillers.
Anyway I’m feeling quite down today I went to the hospital appointment yesterday to gynaecology seen a doctor who just wanted to stick me back on the pill and send me packing. I fought as I don’t want to be on the pill anymore and them just covering up a problem.
They gave me some more pain killers and mefenamic acid.. I said I wanted the pain investigated instead of just labelling me as heavy painful periods.
They done a D&C on me to rule out endometriosis.. I’m just wondering if that test will actually come back with anything?
I told my doctor I’m sure I’ve got endometriosis as I’ve had 2 ultrasounds in the past and they came back clear.
I’ve got a follow up appointment in 6 months time. Do I try and push it for an Laparoscopy or as for a second option?
