    Help with unbearable period cramps?

    Ever since I started my period at around 14, I’ve had super bad menstrual cramps. I’m 17 now and over the years they just keep getting worse and worse. I’ll take all the OTC pain medicine I can even starting a week before I’ll get my period, and it doesn’t help. The heating pad doesn’t help either, and during my periods especially the first couple days I bleed really heavy and I’m in so much pain that I can’t even get out of bed. My doctor started me on a birth control a couple months ago to help....

    Perimenopause or???

    Endo questions and concerns

    I am 52 yrs old and I have been diagnosed with endometriosis. I had painful periods every other month when I first started. The pain seemed to increase each year and it got to the point of doubled over in the fetal position when I was in my late teens. I joined the service just out of High School and didn’t have a period for three months. Those were the best three months of my life. After that, I had painful periods every month that were increasingly more painful. But I was told to ‘suck it up and....

    Pain coming from abdomen on my right side. Possibly from ovaries?

    I’ve had perfect periods since forever. I’ve been on and off birth control pills and I’ve been fine. I decided to try the copper IUD in March 2017 because I was tired of having to remember my pill. Anyways, that was a huge mistake. I had multiple yeast infections and multiple UTIs. I decided to take it out in May 2017 and go back on the pill. Since then, I’ve been on and off the pill. When I’m not taking the pill, I have constant burning pressure pain on the right side of my abdomen. It gets increasingly....

    Vaginal Bleeding

    I had my menstrual cycle this month from February 6th to February 15th. It was a little heavier and lasted longer than usual. My cycle is usually 7 days long. Last night ( February 22nd) I felt some slight burning inside my vagina. Felt as if a UTI was coming on so I drank plenty of water and the pain subsided. Later that night I struggled a little to pass a bowel movement. Shortly after, I noticed I started bleeding from my vagina. There was a blood clot and medium flow bleeding as I wiped myself....

    Prolongued bleeding on birth control with PCOS

    Hi all. I am 24 years old and was diagnosed with PCOS and Uterine fibroids last year (around February). My GP wanted me to try birth control to try and regulate my period because I have had super irregular periods since I was about 21, usually skipping 2-3 months and sometimes up to 5 months. I had a little intermediate spotting here or there, but overall super irregular. I tried Marlissa (the oral contraceptive with estrogen and progestin) last year starting in May. I was on my period for a month....
