So I'm a female in my early 20s and my periods started when I was 15. At the start I ranged from having no pain/ cramps to mild cramps but one day I had a period suddenly which was agonising and I vomited/ almost fainted. Ever since then periods have been excruciating. I get cramps but they are not the problem, the issue is I get a very intense sharp pain in a very localised area in my lower right abdomen. Because of this pain on my first two days, I literally have to crawl to the bathroom (which is literally just outside my room). The pain that I get from that is enough for me to vomit repeatedly, turn white as a sheet, almost faint, shake, sweat and I have to lie on the bathroom floor for at least an hour until I can build up the strength to crawl back to my bed. Urination is agonising too.
Over time, I developed similar symptoms during ovulation - pain in the same area, vomiting, feeling faint but they are not as intense as on my period.
For this I used to take mefenamic acid, cocodamol, tranexamic acid and buccastem which I either couldn't keep down because of the vomiting or it didn't even touch the pain when I could. Eventually I went on the pill and symptoms disappeared. (However the pain is gradually coming back after two years).
I have been in a relationship for a year now which is active. Despite having lost my virginity a year ago, using a lot of lubrication, always used protection and spending a lot of time before, it's still very painful during the first ten mins with either a sharp pain or burning sensation on all of the lower regions (inside and out). Enough to make my eyes water.
I've had ultrasounds before which have shown no cysts. Any sufferers on here think this is like the symptoms they get? Do you think this is endometriosis?
Also I don't know if relevant but for the past 4 years I've had almost daily nausea (no pain though) and loss of appetite. Could this be a symptom?
