Hi! I am posting here because I'm a bit desperate. I always have had painful periods. I took the contraception pill for 4 years, which helped a lot but I stopped 3 years ago to have a break. My period has been much better since then (some pain, but I could totally handle it) but then during the first lockdown I started again with awful periods, and I once ended up in the hospital. I had an ultrasound scan that showed bulky cervix, and I have a referral to gynaecology but it looks like it will take time due the pandemic. My periods have become a nightmare, I can't manage the pain, I started having pain during the intercourse, and since last month feeling cramps everyday of the month. I am so scared because that never happened to me before. I just feel weak and dizzy, I cannot do thing I always have been doing. I am scared it could be cancer as I was positive last year with HPV, but my GP told me it looks like endometriosis.
I have started taking the minipill (I can't take the combined pill anymore for health reasons) and it's not helping either.
Are these symptoms normal? Can they just appear like this in a few months? I can't stop overthinking and I am with anxiety because I don't understand what is happening to me and I am not feeling myself.
I apologize if my spelling or grammar isn't correct, spaniard living in the UK!
Thanks in advance and wishing you a merry xmas!
