I started my period at an early age of 8 years old. I suffer with irregular periods which are painful and lose quite a lot of blood clots. Also bleed in-between periods. Got put on the pill at 12 years old to try regular my periods, slow the bleeding and help with pain. Try several pills throughout my early teens. Then went on the implant at 16 years old.
Endometriosis runs in the family, my gran stuffered with it and my older sister does who has unfortunately had to go through early menopause at 28. I've been to the doctors numberous of times concerning my periods, pain all the time, bloating and painful sex.
The doctor has advised me to have a Mirena coil fitted and said he wouldn't advise me to have a laparoscopy as it could cause more endometriosis and more complications but does seem very likely I do have endometriosis. I'm scared as I'm only 22 incase I may not be able to have a family and what if it spreads to other organs in my body. Why won't they take me serous? It's affecting my day to day activities and my relationship due to painful sex. Just wish it was all normal.
Sorry for the paragraph, hope you all can advise me. Thank you for reading
