Hi all! After seeing a gynecologist 10 years ago for long painful/heavy periods and extremely painful sex, it was suggested that I may have endometriosis. The outcome was an ultrasound that came back ok and that the painful sex was psychological. So I carried on dealing with it.
3 years ago I was put on the mini pill that has stopped my periods completely. I still have frequent abdominal pain (feels like period cramps). For years I've also suffered with daily diarrhoea and severe bloating. I went to see my GP in February because it was getting out of hand and I've absolutely had enough. They're saying it's ibs and I'm currently waiting on a flexi sigmoidoscopy appointment.
My question is, even though I don't have periods anymore, what if I did have endometriosis and could it have spread to my bowels? Should I push to see a gynecologist again.
I'm horrified by some of the stories on here and so sorry you're all going through this. Thanks for reading!
