I am 29 years old and have had PAINful periods since I was 14 (crouched over in pain, staying home from school). YEARS of misdiagnosis led me to a fertility dr. at the age of 22 who performed laproscopic surgery and said I had severe endometriosis. I was then put on birth control which 'helped' the symptoms. Well, I stopped the b.c pills 3 months ago. The first month of ceasing the pills, ALL the pain returned ...heavy bleeding, long periods, swollen abdomen, bleeding feces, etc. Well, 5 days ago when having sex w/ my fiance, I was curled over in pain following sex for a good 2 hours. Since then my abdomen has been very swollen (friends asked if I was pregnant...nope, took a test) and VERY painful pelvic pain. The pelvic pain greatens severly when I have to deficate (sorry). My symptoms are:
-frequent urination (not painful)
-painful sex w/ deep penetration
-swollen abdomen
-constant fatigue (not sure if related)
-depression (not sure if related)
-bleeding during feces during periods
-long painful periods w/ lots of bleeding
So, I went to a new gyn. today since I moved towns, and he said I have a bladder infection and he does not recommend another laproscopic surgery. I want to have children and i want the pain to decrease. Anyone with similar problems or suggestions, PLEASE HELP!!!! Thanks :)
