Hello. My name is Melody. I am 20 years old. I have been struggling with figuring out what is going on with me. As this is a site with many diagnosed endometriosis women, I want to know what you all think of my situation based on your symptoms. As a teen, I had heavy, painful periods. I started birth control at 18. My periods lightened at first, but are now back heavier and longer than ever before. I am fatigued to the point that I can sleep for over eight hours and still feel tired. My body aches, especially in my pelvic area. Going to the bathroom has been painful during my periods. It was not until recently my cramps take my breath away. I have vomited before due to cramps.
I went to the doctor recently and she gave me all kinds of blood tests. My thyroid is fine. She is convinced I am depressed and not sleeping at all, but I know that is not the case. I am going to get a pelvic ultrasound soon but don't know if that is the right path to take. I have a family history of uterine fibroids, PCOS, and endometriosis. Thoughts?
