hi, i’m 21 years old! Long story short, I started having this weird pain in my pelvic area in the beginning of March, got diagnosed with UTI but ended up being allergic to medicine and I still had like this jab of pain in that area that wasn’t consistent at all and wasn’t ruining my daily activities, it was just annoying. Then I started having really bad lower back aches, and some bloating. Sometimes I’d even feel this pain in my rectal area around my period. Through that time period though, I had a really stressful job working with kids and it wore on my body. Resting it helped a lot! I decided to go to a gyno and they did a transvaginal ultrasound for the pain and they said they found nothing - as I was scared I had ovarian cancer since my aunt died of it.
For a whole moth after that i felt none of the symptoms i had before except this annoying indegestion/grumbling noise in my pelvic area and stomach area, too. sometimes that random jab of pain would come but was rarely happening. Then a week before I was supposed to start my period (on the 22nd of June), I started having those same symptoms (like PMS) and the jabbing pain more often. I ended up starting my period 11 days late. I have a scheduled appmt for another vaginal ultrasound and did a CA125 blood test (doctors never called back so i’m guessing it was good). Anyway, I was thinking endometriosis or something else. I’ve had friends who have had similar symptoms with endo that I have. What do you think? Thanks for reading all that! Lol
