This is my 1st time posting so bare with me. This started around March/April time I think but I haven’t yet been to the doctor as I suffer bad health anxiety and I’m petrified of doctors/hospitals!
I’m 32, my periods have always been regular, every 28-30 days. I’ve always had a little pain with them but nothing major, they’ve always lasted around 4-5 days and not light but not overly heavy either. Just normal I guess!
For the past few months the period pain is really bad, I have to take pain killers and lay on the couch with a hot water bottle. Radiates down my legs and my back. They’ve also become a little odd. I’ll spot like brown blood for the 1st day (like the end of my period) then bleed heavy for 1-2 days then the next couple of days are really light until it ends. I’ve had pelvic pain a few days before my period too, pain when urinating on my period and loose bowels too.
I had a smear a couple of months ago and that was all clear.
My symptoms match up to endo but just after some advice really.
Thanks in advance x
