Im getting to a point now where i feel like my age (21) is getting in the way of being taken seriously at the drs. I have been going for just under a year after being diagnosed with PCO, but all they ever did was give me an ultrasound and the pill. I have explained explicitly every time i go to the drs about how much pain i am in on a daily basis, as well as it being horrific during a period or after sex. My periods are very heavy, full of clots and i honestly cant move for the first 3 days without feeling like im going to pass out, the same as if i have had sex, i go into a crippling pain (not every time) and this lasts about 20 mins sometimes more. I have explained this over and over and have even been told that i probably have endometriosis but to just keep taking my pills without any breaks for 3 months- im not sure how good that is for my fertitily. My dr even said to be that if we examined every woman walking down the street, loads of them will have PCO or something similar, which made me feel completely irrelevant and as if i was being dramatic. My friends have been concerned about me because they have seen me when i have episodes of pain and have wanted to take me to the hospital. Again i have told my dr this but she basically brushed the whole thing off as period pains and told me to come back in 3 months before they will refer me to a gyno, even though this has been ongoing for about a year.
