I have been experiencing years (5-8) of symptoms that have been misdiagnosed or totally ignored by doctors and specialists. I have been hauled into the Dr. after Dr. and as I arrived I was told I was misdiagnosed, so any and all help would be appreciated. Please, read my story and help point me in the right direction, I need help.

The Big Problem: I have experienced extreme pain in the lower abdomen/pelvis area during, and after, intercourse (the pain is less if I am on my side). The pain will go from mild, to moderate, to stabbing, and then a pleasant numbness. After intercourse, a mild to moderate bleeding will occur followed by a clear, but sticky and thick, vaginal discharge. This discharge can last for a day or two and is then followed by a slightly heavier and darker discharge that can last for several more days (up to a week and a half). The abdominal/pelvis pain will come and go during this time. Then, I have horrible periods during my cycle that are either heavy, cause pain, or mood swings, so intercourse is rare with the multitude of symptoms that last almost a combined month between it all.

Medical History: 26 y/o f with irregular periods (taking Lo Estrin) and a history of thyroid problems (.88 Levoxly). Currently experiencing, premenopausal-like symptoms of: hot flashes/night sweats, depression, headaches, irritability/mood swings, tender breasts (mild breast tenderness with extreme nipple tenderness OR I can not feel contact with breasts/nipples at all; quick and severely changes), change in hunger, irregular heart beat, trouble sleeping, exhaustion/fatigue w/ aching, lack of desire. I am a high stress person and have been experiencing more backpain as well.
