Hi ladies, this is probably going to be a long post with a lot of 'tmi' so I do apologise in advance.
From the age of around 15/16 years old I have suffered absolutely horrendously with my periods, I have had surgery on my spine when I was 16 years old and I swear my period pain is worse than that whole experience. It's absolutely agonising for the first 2 sometimes 3 days of my period and then it goes completely, also along with my period is horrible diarrhoea and sickness for the first few days.. every month which means I always have to have time off work every month.
Ive tried once before to go through the process of getting a diagnosis but as I was so young I felt like none of the doctors took me seriously and thought it was just the process of my periods adjusting to my body as I was/ I am so young. They refused to give me a laparoscopy and told me to try the contraceptive implant which totally messed up my cycle completely and I got it taken out after 6 months due to constant bleeding. (literally a weeks worth of not bleeding each month)
I am now 18 years old and with the support of my amazing partner and family I have been trying for a baby since November last year because I was and still am terrified about not being able to have children- with no luck yet.
I know a lot of people wont agree with me trying for a baby so young but this is right for me and my partner and we both are as prepared as any other 'wannabe' parents. I hope someone can give me some advice and support as to what to do next.
