Hello, I'm new here! Straight to the point...
So I'm 18 years old and I had my first period at 14 without any complications. But for the past 2 years I've been experiencing really painful cramping associated with back pain and irregular periods - sometimes even a month late! Also 90% of the time I get diarrhea. This sometimes happens even 2-4 days before my period. In July my period was late and I was bleeding just a little one day, next two days nothing, then I bled a tiny bit again, then nothing again, then I had diarrhea for 3 days straight with horrible stomach cramps but no bleeding. And then, I finally got my period. About 2 months ago I had urinary tract infection (not sure if this is important). I went to see a gynecologist for the first time a month ago and he told me it's hormones, gave me hormonal birth control which I just stared taking with my current (still super painful and uncomfortable) period. Other symptons I have include pain during urination (especially during menstruation but also at other times), sometimes slight pain or discomfort during sex (I've been sexually active for about 3 months) and painful bowel movements. Should I be worried or am I overthinking this?
