This is my first time posting here and i am now because ive had enough.
History: im 30 years old. Ive had 3 babies, 10,3 and 2. Ive never had any period or cycle problems till mid last year.
Ive not been diagnosed but have an app with the specialist in july :(
First time i realised something was wrong was when i went to the toilet during my period on the 1st or 2nd day. I went to use my Bowels and it was excruciating. Like a stabbing sharp pain in my bum and inside my stomach. It took me by surprise and i may have screamed a little..... (awkward).
Ever since then my cycle has been all messed up. I get my period every 2-3 weeks rarely ever a 28 day cycle, once it didn't come for 5 weeks. Generally the worst days and most painful days are the 1st and 2nd day and the flow is very heavy and im pretty out of it for those days (like today).
I have pretty bad cramping and i feel like my vagina will fall out because of the pressure feeling, The pain when using my bowels and when urinating. I try just not to number 2 on the worst days to avoid the pain.
I cant use tampons as its just too much pressure in my bum and i get sharp pains when i sit directly on my bum for the first few days.
I also get many of these symptoms when im ovulating which usually happens around the week after my period.
My pms is pretty out of control also and it almost feels like depression when it comes.
Does this sound like Bowel endo or could it be something else?
Why does it flare up now and not 20 years ago?
