hi i just found this site after none stop searching for some help and answers . i am praying someone here might be able to give me some advice . 7 months ago i was having right sided overy pain first day of my period to the point i could not move and was going dizzy and faint this normally lasted about 2 days then the rest was not so bad apart from very heavy bleeding and clots . strange thing is everything as changed . since these 7 months i have been having alot of pelvic pain and periods lasting longer but now the pain seems to be almost everyday and seems to move around also i bleed between periods and after sex . the pain is now becoming strong in my left side and lower pelvis also backache .. sometimes it hurts after passing urine and opening bowels ..this pain wakes me in the night and is getting me down so much now suffering from tiredness and stress because of this . doctor as carried out some tests last week waiting for some results on that urine was fine so no bladder infection . also i have noticed now that ibs is kicking in on top of all this ..i am hoping that someone might have an idea here ..the pelvic pain is never in the same place it moves lower pelvic which feels sore and deep then moves to left side .. doctor gave me a pelvic exam and said he thinks it might be a left side tube infection again antibioctics . they have not helped me in the slightest in fact i think they made my pain worse ..sometimes after passing motions i see little spot in urine depends if im consipated " sorry for the to much info bit " but im really needing some help on this .. my periods now seem to go on for longer and bleeding in between .. the next period from ***l is not far away it makes this pain so much worse i am thinking of asking my doctor if he can stop it coming ..hoping to hear from someone soon cant take this nomore sending me crazy ..

  • hii have endometriosis and to me it sounds alot like that! but i know that similar symptoms can be casued by things like infection etc. mention it to your doc next time but they will probably still want to rule out other possibilities as it's very difficult to diagnose endo. Hope you find out what's casuing your pain and hope this may have helped. Goodluck

You are showing classic signs of endometriosis. Your gyno sounds like he is not doing a very good job, but also endo is hard to diagnose...google this and get more info. You need to find an endo literate doc. OR better still, please find a good Oriental Medical practitioner who specializes in Chinese herbal medicine and women's disorders. I have treated endometriosis very successfully in my clinic...it is often the only treatment that gives relief. Endo is a bear! But you are not alone. Please consider acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine I feel it would help you tremendously! Visit www.acufinder.com to find a practitioner near you. Can't recommend this highly enough! Have you had a transvaginal ultrasound and lower abdominal ultrasound done? If not, then you should to rule out ovarian cysts or fibroids, which this could be as well. But I really think it is endo due to your severe pain, bleeding, and IBS symptoms. Best wishesDOM

  • You should really get a 2nd opinion. I lived with the pain you are describing for 3 years before I was dx. I had a huge uterine fibroid and polycystic ovaries. I feel for you, I know how much you hurt. Good luck and I hope you find some answers soon. With what you are going through, if you are still of childbearing age, you may want a laparoscopy to diagnose you. If you are not, you may consider a hysterectomy. I hope everything works out and quickly.
