Nobody understands my pain.. I don't even understand it seeing as I have had pretty much normal periods. I'm 36 with two children, 16 and 10. I went off all birth control 7 years go do to migraines. I have been through a divorce almost two years ago and have a new boyfriend. I went on the pill to try it out for three months but got the migraines again so I stopped. Than I started getting breakthrough bleeding during sex so I went back to the OB/GYN where she said I was fine and sent me on my way... The next month period was SO different from any other period in my life! I had extreme pain to the point of being curled up on the floor and bled like crazy with small clots. These spasms in my lover belly brought me to my knees and I would scream out in pain! They would last 1 min to maybe 5 than dull down. Two days of my period was the worst pain in my life. I called the OB/GYN and went in two weeks later where they set me up for an ultrasound where it showed I have a cyst in my uterus, the nurse practitioner said it was small but could be why I was in pain and we talked about birth control once more. She put me on a pill called Heather that was just estrogen-based and said it would help with my bleeding and shrink the cyst. 4 months later NOTHING changed! Crazy pain where I couldn't even use a tampon and hurt when I drove over bumps!! During this time I would call the doctor and she said give it time. NO MORE!! I was done. I stopped the pill.. That next month the pain was so bad I went to the ER it hurt so bad to just walk! I sat there for 6 hrs with extra strength Tylenol seeing as I do not take pain meds. ( crazy I know) it did nothing. Gave me another ultrasound said everything was the same asked what they could do for me, I said " fix me" they looked at me like I had 10 heads and sent me on my way.... I now felt very lost and just dealt with it... The pain went from a 20 to a 10 no more spasms so I thought I was getting better. The last incident I was at work feeling soooo sick and in Pain my coworker even commented on my look asking if I was ok... I went to the bathroom to freshen up came back and all of a sudden I felt this griping twisting knife stabbing pain and than a gush!!! I bleed through a new supper+ Tampon along with an overnight pad!!! It was all over my jeans! I felt like a balloon of blood had popped inside me! I rushed to the bathroom and out came this large clot the size of both my hands! I was freaked out! I called the doctor and they said to go to the ER if I wanted and called in another drug to stop the bleeding that I didn't even pick up do to the Side effects and just went home.. I want to the OB/GYN once again when I finally met the real doctor and not the nurse practitioner. He didn't even examine me and I asked for a hysterectomy. He said no way would he ever give me a hysterectomy and to make sure I do all The research I need to do first, to cross my T's and dotting my I's and that was it ... Are you kidding me!!! So I went to see the nurse and told her how unprofessional he was than she said she would recommend me to another OB/GYN two months later no word and I'm sitting here in pain where I can't even touch my belly, I am so tired I sleep all day and my back feels like a twig about to snap, I'm in bed missing family time and my boyfriend has no clue what my pain feels like with 3 Advil that does nothing he just thinks I have cramps and to come out of bed. This all went from normal periods to this craziness in one month/ over night. What is this?!! And why now?? Anyone please let me know if this happened to you!!
