Patient : I am 26years old. I have had problems with my periods since i started them when i was 13. They were always very heavy and painful and full of clots. They were very irregular, sometimes not coming for months at a time. When they did come they could last up to 12 days. The last 2 months they have been right on time and i am lucky if they are lasting 2 days, with very little blood at all. I also find sex impossible as the pain during and after is too much to deal with, also i have bled after sex each time. A smear is next to impossible due to the pain and even an internal examination is soar. I used to faint with my periods but i seemed to grow out of that as the years have went on. I have alot of pain in my tummy, like a dull gnawing pain most of the time, but also get sharp, stabbing pains and hot burning ones. Painkillers don't help. I get sharp pains threw my bottom and vagina too. I seem to be prone to alot of wind just now and have been having problems going to the toilet. I am even soar after a pee. I feel alot of pressure in my stomach from time to time. I have been tested for stds and urine infection but these came back clear. I was diagnosed with ibs years ago and more recently a cervical etropian but the doctor's don't think this is causing all my problems. I have also had an ovation cyst that went away on its own. I am also tired all thetime. I am having to go to hospital for a laparoscapy to see if i have endometriosis. What do you think?
