Shall i give up?

Hey everyone. Im a newbie here and felt i had to share a little bit of my experience.

When i was a teen i was told that i kost likely had endometriosis combined with IBS. Doctors felt it was too "invasive" to carry out lap surgery and that i would manage symptoms myself. I then had a miscarraige at 16, but went on to have a healthy little boy 2 years later. (Now 10). I was then diagnosed 4 years after my son with pelvic imflammatory disease. That year i had an ectopic pregnancy with left tube removed. There is period background ie very unregular, where i would miss 3-4 periods a year. I went between 32 and 60 days between. Very painful and heavy. 5 yrs later i finally got pregnant again only to discover it was a 2nd ectopic on my right ovary. They left tube intact to try and give me one more shot at pregnancy but the chances where slim. I was also diagnonsed with cysts on my right ovary at that time. 1 year on and things have gone from bad to worse. I get extreme pain during menstrual cycle where i literally cannot walk,msit or lie down. I just cry. Then precisely on my peak ovulation day i get this ache in my right groin, back, buttocks and thigh region. Sometimes radiating to my ribs. I feel bloated and extremely uncomfortable. Ive now had 2 scans including internals. Doctors say there is nothing wrong. I just dont know what to do. Shall i fight to be seen? Shall i give up and try my hardest to live this way? Your comments would be so appreciated ladies.

Thankyou for your time xxx

Don't give up! Keep fighting for a referral. Ask to be sent to a specialist endometriosis centre. I had endo on my ovaries and always had ovulation pain. You need to exhaust every avenue before you settle for living in pain. A pain clinic referral may help to control the pain too. Good luck.
