Hello everyone I hope you’re all well! This is my first time using a forum like this but I’m really desperate for some advice and would really appreciate your time please
So I am 17 years old and for the past year I have struggled with an awful menstrual cycle. Firstly they are so irregular, so much so that my average cycle length is 72 days and my last period was 50 days ago (absolutely no chance that I am pregnant). Additionally, when I do eventually have a cycle, it is always super heavy, prolonged and painful. Usually it will last anywhere between 7 to 9 days and the pain is so debilitating. I’ve missed college and work every time I have my cycle because it’s just too heavy and too painful to move. I always feel faint when I am on and even sometimes I do actually faint.
I have spoken to my GP countless times and I just have the feeling they don’t believe my symptoms. They’ve issued blood test and ovarian ultrasound in the past in which they told me have come back normal. I’ve tried lots of medication and it’s just no use. I just honestly don’t want it anymore I’ve spoken to my mother about to and she’s not sure what to do either. I just wish my GP would take me seriously.
I am ever so sorry for this rant I’m just honestly quite fed up (I know it sounds selfish). Thank you so much for reading my essay lol 😅.
