I am looking for a bit of reasurrance. I have suspected endo and adeno and I am waiting on an MRI to see what's going on. I also have a cyst on my left ovary. The major problem I am having at the moment is with my bowels. For the past 5 months I have had mucus from my bottom the day before and 1st day of my period accompanied by horrific pains when trying to have a bowel movement. The rest of the month I am left with this horrible feeling of needing a poo, or to pass wind. I think I've caused some hemorrhoids by straining which isn't helping. I am also having looser stools, sometimes harder to pass... it's just all over the place. My periods are always very heavy but this month, weirdly was only 3 days, but the rectal pain persists. Sometimes its in the tailbone or in my back. I just wondered if anyone has symptoms outwith their period?
