hi, i have always had heavy and painful periods, 2 yrs ago had microwave treatment (removes lining of womb i think) which helped with the bleeding, but the pain has got worse as time has gone on. When i do 'have a period' its not heavy but the pain i get is unbearable, i'm completely bent over, and it hurts to move my legs, all i can do is lay down curled up in a ball untill it eases, i say 'when i have a period' because most of the rest of the month i have mild pains and just a brownish discharge. when the pain is at its worse it is low in the groin area. i do suffer irritable bowel syndrome but i'm sure i know when, i don't know what is what at the moment, any advice would be great. thanks mandy
