Hi.I would really appreciate any help,I'm22 years old&since I was 12 I have had hideous period pains, irregular bleeding&a stabbing pain in my ovaries.This has gotten worse over the years& my periods last around two weeks&are so heavy- the blood is dark&clotted&during this time the pain is often so severe that I cannot go out of the house! I also experience terrible pain during sex with bleeding &occaisionally a popping noise and then lots of blood,which is hideous!2 years ago I had a laparoscopy,they said I had polycystic ovaries I was then fitted with a Mirena coil.After this I bled and was in pain every day for about 4 months,I had to go to e.r 3 times it was that painful,I was prescribed cocodomol 30/500.After 6 months I had no more bleeding but the pain was still there &I developed bowel problems.I now get dreadful pain in my lower back&have to dash to the toilet anything from 5 - 15 times a day! About 20minutes after food I have to go to the toilet.6 months ago I had a colonoscopy as they suspected colitis but there was no evidence of this,I also often get bleeding when passing motion.The only way I can control having to urgently go to the toilet is by not eating&this only minimises it,does not stop it completely and obviously is not an answer!!IIf I have an exam at University I tend to not eat at all the day of it or the day before to avoid the problem.Every day I am in pain& I am trying not to take tablets on a daily basis when I get the stabbing pain in my ovaries (about once a week )I feel that bad I cannot move therefore have to take the cocodomol although they do not get rid of the pain entirely.I still get occasional random bleeding even with the coil in and the pain worsens around this time but this only happens around 4 times a year.Is there any advice you can give me? I don't know they’re connected in any way (ovary pain& bowel problems)but I had to take a year off Uni due to them &my attendance this year is suffering.Thank you, Carrie.
