21 years old, may have Endometriosis...?
2 Replies
alisonjayne89 - August 25

I've been having severe cramps, pain and heavy periods since they first began at about 14 years old. I didn't think much of it because I was always told cramps were normal, heavy periods were normal and pain is normal.
But after almost 3 years of unprotected sex with my partner and no pregnancy, I decided to see my doctor who asked various questions and came to the conclusion I may have Endometriosis.

I didn't know very much about it until she explained and have done a lot of research since. I've been put on a 3 month trial and given a prescription of something acid tablets to take during my period to see if it helps. I've been told to make notes of any pains in my abdomen and any unusual things I notice during my cycle, she wants me to return in 3 months with my notes and then she'll assess whether a Laproscopy is neccessary.

Sorry about the babbling but, is there anyone else my age who has been told anything like this?

I'm not actively trying for a baby, I would like children though and me and my partner have just been trying the 'see what happens' approach. But since seeing my doctor, I feel like suddenly I'm forced to think about timing and options and it's throwing me a little off-guard.

My concentration is shot to pieces and suddenly I'm worrying that I may difficulties having children which is affecting my mental state somewhat.

Any advice or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated.
