I'm undiagnosed but having laparoscopy at the end of the month.
I'm starting to question myself now and worried that it's all in my head.
I have the mirena coil which has helped massively with the heavy bleeding and pain but I'm finding ovulation the worst time of the month. Bloating, bleeding, pulling twisting in right side, very bad lower back ache, dragging sensation.
Before the coil my periods usee to be so heavy to the point I was changing tampons every hour, sometimes sooner and my pyjamas would be soaked with blood sometimes twice a night on the heavier days. Ive also got chronic anemia which the gp's said was heavy periods but never referred me or looked into it? Been on iron tablets for a long time as the ferritin (iron stores) have got so low it will take a long time to get them back up.
'Im fatigued and sometime nauseous but the pain isn't as bad at what most ladies on here is experiencing so I am doubting myself. I also bleed a little when having a bowel movement when on my period. This was confirmed with a positive stool test which I had a colonoscopy for and it was normal.
I've also had clear ultrasound and ct scan.
Anyone else like this? Or have Similar symptoms to me and have a diagnosis? I'm worried it's all in my head 😩
