    Default 11 years old with bad ovulation pains

    DD admitted to hospital with suspected appendicitis, three blood tests later and two very thorough ultrasounds checking ovaries, bladder, appendix, liver, kidneys,, got the all clear, diagnosis was ovulation pains. Poor thing couldn't walk for two and a half days.

    please tell me she's not going to get this all the time.

    how young is too young for the pill!

    For or the last three months, she's been having spotting and a fair amount of mucous for 3-4 days every pretty much spot on four weeks. Liners at this stage have been sufficient. Has had cramping but no ovulation pains.

    But this time after the pain eased, she's had spotting and brownish blood just three days after the pain started. And has needed a pad. Would this be classed as a period, or just associated with ovulation. I've always thought you got your period about 14 days later.

    we are following up with the GP soon, hospitals said wait about 8 days for their notes etc to reach the Drs. Just thought until then some ladies on here might have had similar with their daughters.

    My 12yo (11 when first got her period) suffers horrific period pain, usually accompanied by dizziness and nausea . She usually has to have a day or two off school and doesn't move from her bed. She gets a bit of cramping at ovulation but not to bad.
    I have taken her to GP and women's health Dr but there's not been much help other than to use pain relief - she finds Ponstan and neurofen work best. She takes pain meds about every 4 hrs on day one. I am reluctant to use hormone control at this point and am hoping it will settle a bit as her puberty progresses. She us so depressed she has to go through this for the next 40 years! Poor kiddo
    Your DD sounds like she has really extreme pain..I'm sure there are specialist in the field you could be referred to?

    Yeah, I'm asking at GP Visit. Or we might wait and see if it happens next time :-/ My daughter was given panadol and nurofen together and some other stuff OxyCone or something and they did little to help, took the pain level from 9 down to 5

    hugs to your DD Hope it settles.

    Default 11 years old with bad ovulation pains

    Our situation is a little different as DD, 11.5yrs, does not have her period yet, but the last year we have had similar problems, it started at school when I was called to come and get her as they thought it was her appendix. She was in so much pain she couldn't walk.
    All tests came back clear. Then it happened again, after numerous times and lots of tests I was told that hormonal changes tend start 2yrs before your period comes, and that there will be mucus for sometime before she actually gets her period, sure enough it does seem to be happening in a 28 day cycle.

    Some months it's better others not so much.
    A nurse at the hospital told me to try cranberry tea, I have no idea if it's helping, sometimes I still need to give her pain medication but it seems to be not as bad lately.

    If your DD is in a lot of pain each time, I'd keep seeking medical advice, but the brownish discharge sounds like a normal first period.

    ETA- a heat pack relieves some of the pain for DD, not enough to go about the day normally, but it makes her a little more comfortable.

    Poor kids 😢
    I'd be asking for a referral to a reproductive endocrinologist who specialises in endometriosis if the pain continues like that and just wave away any opinions that you're overreacting.

    On average it takes a decade between onset and diagnosis of endometriosis because womens pain is minimised and disregarded and women are told to just put up with it.

    Took me twenty years for a doctor to diagnose endometriosis.

    I'm not sure if this would help but I use naprogesic for period pain and it is fantastic.

    I hope you guys get some answers. Your poor DD.

    I ended up in hospital with severe pain at 11. They think it was ovulation pain. My AF started a year later (very heavy and very painful) and I went on the pill the year are that. I'm no longer on the pill and although I do get OV pain it is nothing like it was at the start.
