Hi, I'm a 29 year old, never been pregnant female and im at my wits end in need of opinions...
Ive been having pelvic pain a number of years. Always a week or so before my period woukd start; I'd be be in crippling pain for 4-5 nights.
I saw a gynecologist once who said she suspected endo. She said she'd arrange a scan. That got lost in the ether. I saw another, a man that passed it off as ibs. I gave up.
I moved and the pain continued but getting a referral still seemed impossible from my gp not filling out a form correctly to another just not caring.
October last year I started bleeding and having terrible lower back pain. This persisted until January. Non stop heavy bleeding. A new Dr finally got a referral but it takes time. I started soaking through a pad in 30 minutes. I went to ED.
I was put on progesterone. It stopped it but the pain redoubled. I was in agony.
I had an ultrasound shortly after and they weren't sure as my lining is too thick but she said perhaps a polyp hiding there. I'm still awaiting the followup.
Since then I've stopped taking progesterone - the pain was too much. I still get pain, particularly after orgasm, be it penetrative or not. I bleed slightly after but nothing major. My periods have been awol since. 2 months and nothing except an occassional pink watery discharge with specks of blood once every few weeks.
Pain continues. Hard to lay on my side sometimes. Been tired and naeusus a lot. I feel like my stomach is bigger but s**t, may be in just fat and have had some rectal bleeding.
Should I go see my gp? Here in nz you can't just go see a gynaecologist and the wait list is massive so it could be months before the referral goes through; but I'm starting to get really scared something is wrong...
Do you think endo?
