    Painful urination not STI/ UTI/ yeast or BV

    I’m at a loss. I’m 23. For a year it’s hurt to pee everyday. It gets better when I drink water, but nothing has helped. I was on 3 rounds of antibiotics for a UTI: nothing. Antibiotics for BV: nothing. All my STI checks were clean and so was my yeast. I don’t have urgency to pee, but it hurts every time. I had a OBGYN recommend I see a labia specialist because I might have a sensitivity. But it came on so suddenly. I did a 5k in high waisted shorts and that night it felt like I had a UTI. Then the....

    Extreme periods

    I started my menstrual period about a month and a half ago. It was normal, lasted about 6 days and was pretty light. Two days after finishing I went to the washroom before bed and had started again, woke up in the morning and it had stopped. This happened 3 days in a row. The fourth started and didn't stop for somewhere around 22 days in that amount of time I went through 4 big boxes of tampons, 3 huge packages of pads and I even used a couple of my 10 month olds diapers because I had ran out....

    Endometriosis....Ehh... I dunno, Possibly?!?!?!

    I was 29 when I had my first child *he's 6*... 6months later found out I was 2 months pregnant with my little girl *she's 5.* Needless to say before my husband I never thought I'd have kids, just because well it hadn't happened so it wasn't meant to be. My periods have ALWAYS been horrible and painful, kinda just assumed I was broken and moved on. I've had cyst rupture; multiple cyst rupture... It happens often. I've had my right ovary removed during emergency surgery....

    Concerning menstrual patterns

    I have had my period for 6 years now (i am 18) and for the last 3 years, it became insane. This year i had breaks between periods of only 2 weeks and 10 days heavy periods. My last period ended a week ago and it started again now. I also have severe pain with intercourse. Any opinions on what it could be? xx

    Where to begin

    I've been thinking I could have endometriosis for the past couple years. I have pelvic pain almost constantly and sometimes after sex it's really bad. I've also been told that could be the reason for my fatigue at 21 years old. I haven't seen a doctor for it yet. I will this Friday. Where do I even start with my doctor?
