I'm 44 and in the last 6 months my periods have changed, in the main, by becoming more painful. I'm also experiencing menstrual pain throughout the month. During my period I have an intense pain in my lower right abdomen. The left side is totally fine. Also, I'm generally constipated and bloated, pain outside of period can keep me awake at night. My GP sent me for a pelvic abdominal ultra sound, expecting that I would have a cyst but it was clear and now he won't take me seriously. I'm wondering if I am just being paranoid or if I should pay for an additional test? I have lost most of my family to cancer and I just feel that there is something not right.
Thanks in advance and best wishes to everyone
