Hello, I don't know if I'm at the right place, but I figured it would give me somewhere to speak to people who may have had a similar experience.
I've not been diagnosed yet with endometriosis, yet ten years ago I had a laproscopy for unrelated reasons at the time and apparently was treated for adhesions and my ovary was stuck to my uterus wall or something. At the time I didn't understand that kind of thing so I just accepted it and ended up going on the combined pill to stop my bleeding issues that I'd been having. That worked, and I didn't really think about it, until I recently came off the pill five months or so ago and have had nothing but issues since.
Every month when I'm due to be ovulating I end up with moderately bad pelvic floor pain that feels like a lot of pressure around my rectal area and pelvic area (pubic bone area) as well. I figured it was a weird thing to happen so after the second month I made an appointment and got a referral to get an internal pelvic ultrasound to check everything is okay. However, the last week or so my bowels have been exceptionally bad, and especially when I started my period a few days ago. But yesterday I had a moderate amount of rectal bleeding when making a BM, and this has happened now maybe 3-4 times since yesterday? I generally do get a lot of pressure around my rectal area when on a period so I wouldn't have noticed before, but for some reason there has been a lot of blood and I'm freaking out.
I had a sigmoidoscopy a year ago that came back normal, but I stopped the pill due to HPV, and worrying it would worsen things. Therefore I'm wondering if all these symptoms could be related to endo.
I know nobody here can diagnose and I still have to wait for the ultrasound but I wanted to hear any other experience in case I'm just thinking of all the wrong things.
Thanks for reading!
