17 year old daughter in terrible pain during and before period

Posted , 3 users are following.

My 17 year old daughter has been suffering with terrible pelvic pain for a few weeks now. She saw GP and she sent her for a scan, sonographer said everything looked okay. About 2 weeks ago she had dreadful pain and I think this was ovulation, I nearly took her to A and E, but eventually pain killers kicked in. Now she has her period and is in terrible pain again, she has been crying in so much pain and said it feels like it's in her bones. She has also had some clotting. She isn't secually active so no chance of Std. We daw a different GP on Friday who put her on the pill, said it was hormonal, but didn't give her anything for pain. It's day4 of her period now and still in so much pain. Not in with other GP till 30th October. I'm just so worried, could it be PID or endo, I read these things do t show up on a scan. If she's still bad today will rinf out if hours. Just so worried see g her in so much pain. Please help.

      Hi Eleanor sorry you are suffering too. I have been doing some research and it seems oestrogen is the culprit in female reproductive system. She is going to follow a diet that doesn't stimulate oestrogen production, I. e free range chicken. Here in UK they inject chi lens with oestrogen to fatten them up quickly. Soya products also increase oestrogen production. Trying anti inflammatory foods and supplements, Magnesium Glycinate from nutri and fish oils omega Also agnus castus herb to naturally balance hormones. Not gonna do these things instead of medical treatment, but hopefully they will help long term.

    Sonograms aren't reliable on endo. Your daughter needs to see a gynecologist, who might put her on the pill anyway but it might be a different one. Stuff that idiot who said it's hormonal: EVERYthing to do with periods is hormonal! But that's also an insult here in the States and a joke docs use in their coffee or tea breaks.

    A&E will never be much help unless she hemorhages and we hope that never happens. I've only ever heard of it post-laparoscopy.

    When you find a good gyno, don't be surprised if a bunch of gastro tests are ordered. There are several very serious diseases they always have to rule out. But due to her age, they may try to make her wait for yrs before they run a single test. She needs to start a symptom diary & it needs to go with you to every appointment. She needs you as her advocate or backup with the docs. They pay more attention when there's someone else there.

      Hi thanks for your reply, here in UK the GPS don't refer to specialists straight away, they tend to try things first. Although this one seems better than most and did at least send her for a scan. Thanks for info regarding a diary we will do that. Its a shame that endo only shows up with a laperoscopy. GPS in UK have cut down on prescriptions, but am going to go. In with her next time and ask for stronger pain relief. I ha e read that anti spasmodic meds can help. If pill doesn't help will request to see a gaenicologist.
