I have suffered with extremely painful periods since I was a teenager and I'm now 40. I started taking Cerrelle to ease the pains. This started working after a few months and now the pains have returned 18 months or so later. The pains are horrendous! They start a week before and up to two/three days into my period. I get shooting pains, aches, cramping pains and shooting/throbbing pains in my bum (sorry for the detail). Nothing seems to ease the pain, I take whatever I think will try and help and the pains last all day and sometimes more. They last now for a week and last month I had three separate periods lasting 1 day, 2 days and 1 week.
I'm trying to lose weight however my stomach is often bloated and I have only managed 2-3 pounds despite eating healthy and keeping fit.
I experience pain during sex, I'm not sexually active at present.
I am due to visit my gp again in 2 days, does anyone have any suggestions before the appointment? Thank you in advance.
