i am 35 yrs old. i had my first period when i was 13 and starting from that time, my periods were irregular. i use to have it once in 3 months. but it was heavy. it went on until i got married at the age of 20. after one year of marriage i tried to see a doctor cause i could not conceive n the doctor did a leproscopy for me and he said that everything is okay and the chances of me getting pregnant is 50/50 cause of my irregular periods. anyhow he gave me medicines and my periods were regular. once i stopped eating the medicines my periods were irregular again and i put on weight.

everything went on just like that till one day, after i lost some weight, i got pregnant after 12 yrs of marriage. i was so excited and then sorrow. i had a miscarriage. now that recently after 2 yrs of the incident, i m experiencing something new. when i start having periods, i get only spotting but it is not coming out properly and when i have sex, i can see the blood. i went to see a doctor and he did pep smear and the results were okay. but then i dont know what is wrong? please help

  • Did they mention endometriosis to you thats what i had and sounds like some of your symptoms> Often hard to diagnose but i know I had symptoms for years before I took myself to another doctor who diagnosed my freind and sure enough that wsa it, sometimes they go my tthe ymtomes alone to treat it, they think my niece age 17 has it. I had a laproscopy done and they drained a cyst with it was an endometriosis cyst casue it has a dark thick consistency when drained . Maybe they missed it on the first lapro casue they missed mine. But I did have it.
