I've been having problems for awhile with really HEAVY menstrual bleeding/clots. I go through a super tampon + an overnight pad every 30 minutes or less. The cramps are super intense, pain killers don't do anything and the past 3 months i have vomitted on the first day of my period and intense lower back pain. I could go on about the symptoms.
I went to the dr and had a pap done and that came back normal. After the doctor felt around on my abdomin he ordered a US which will happen on Tuesday. He said he wants to check for fibroids or cysts. He said I could either have fibroids or Endometreosis and with my job (I sit at a desk) i'm more at a risk for either one. I also have family history of Endo and fibroids.
I've been having pain on my lower right side around my ovary and I think I can feel something that's not supposed to be there. Sometimes it hurts so bad that it hurts to walk.
Does anyone have advice for me ? Anyone that has experience with either Endo or fibroids? Oh and I'm 26 and have never had kids.
