I am in need of advice as I am now at a dead end of where to go next.
Age 16 I got told I had POCS, the doctor sends me for a scan and they say they can’t see any of my left ovaries. Doctor is not concerned as still young.
Periods get more intense over the years where every time I have a period it results in one week off. I have been to A&E previously where they gave me two co codomal left me in a room they came back later and said they needed the room. Pain is so intense that my partner now has to look after me as I can’t physcially move any part of my body. Doctors have known about my period pain for years. They reccomend I use the mini pill however, my hormones do not agree with that and I end up on anti depressants. Fast forward to this year.
I went to see a new doctor as I realised my doctor wasn’t doing anything about this. New doctor sends me for a scan - whilst getting scanned the lady says that everything is fine and there will be no problem of having children as it looks all great down there. Amazing you think to yourself wow I can have children!!!
Fast forward a week where I get a phone call from my doctor saying I have POCS and that I need to come in for a chat. I go in for a chat she half explains what the problem is gives me the mini pill (after I had explained it does not help me) and says come back in a month and She can refer me to the gyno.
Please can someone give me advice on what to do?
I should say that I am 25yo I am not looking to start a family yet but I would like to in a couple of years hence why I want to get this sorted out early. I have not used contraception in the past 5 years - I have not been pregnant once - no STI’s. The doctor has said that I should treat my pain first and then think about children as I am still too young. I do not agree with this as I think the problem should be resolved now not later on.
I would appreciate any advice small or big or if you think anything could help. Please please please do message.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
