I've been experiencing problems since jan 2014, heavy periods/irregular bleeding/excruciating pelvic pain/lower back pain etc. continuously kept going back to gp as knew something was up, first of all I was fobbed off with painkillers by a locum doctor! Which did nothing.. Then received numerous blood tests (all clear) had about 3 ultrasounds in total (all clear) had numerous swabs (all clear) also had smear test (clear!) the pain keeps getting worse as months go by! Finally was referred to gynaecologist who I waited months to see.. But in the meantime while waiting I started bleeding Iregularly (hasn't happened since!) and was referd for an immediate colposcopy.. Which was clear thank god but she did say I had inflammation in the neck of my womb & took biopsy which came back clear and was a relief! Finally had the gynae apt and I saw his assistant basically she tried fobbing me off saying your only 26.. It's normal periods (she clearly has never experienced any problems!) once again was sent for ultrasound & she did say if nothing is found we will probably just give you hormone treatment.. I thought no way have I been suffering in all this pain for so long to be told I will only be offered that! So anyway luckily I saw the gynae when I went back and he said he suspects Endo & only way to diagnose is by a lap.. This was back in January when he referred me for it.. Still waiting for a date!! How Long did u all wait for the lap? It's been 4 months now, I'm just a bit worried about fertility etc I have a 5 year old daughter & would like more children in future! But fed up of living in more or less constant pelvic pain very day (especially as I write this I am ovulating & the pain is excruciating!) does anyone else experience this? Painkillers don't seem to touch it!! Sorry for rambling on, but if anyone has any input would be much appreciated! Thanks
