Ask a Gynaecologist and Get Answers to Your OB/GYN Questions ASAP
Are you on any birth control?
Are you sexually active?
Neither to both
Well what you more than likely have is called Endometriosis- this is a very common problem and usually helped with birth control pills
Also, I would make sure you to not have an UTI - Urinary tract infection - as that is a common problem too to see
I have given a urine sample which has come back clear
Then more than likely this is endometriosis - which is the cells that are normally on the inside of the uterus - then can be a various places around your pelvis and abdomen - and hence cause the problems you have.
So the BEST thing to do is to start on a birth control pill - as this should help you tremendously
Okay I dont understand why my GP hasnt sent me for an ultra sound though or anything else, she has just felt my stomach and done a urine sample..
Is endometriosis a serious problem
No it is not a serious problem - and honestly your GP should just put you on a birth control you really do not need an ultrasound -
Its very hard to explain but my pain isnt severe enough to stop me carrying out normal tasks its more like lower back pain and some slght discomfort/twinged in my genital area/pelvis
yes - and that describes the early stages of endometriosis - so hence going on a birth control - this will Really help you
Okay thank you.. I was n birth control pills over 3 years ago but only for a few months never been on anything since..
well stay on the birth control and only stop when you want to get pregnant.
