    Default Could it be endo?

    I am 17 years old and have had period for 5 years with not problems/bad period pains.


    3 weeks ago, there was slight pain in my uterus when having sex (previously no problems during sex). the next time I had sex (1 wk later, with the same person of course), extremely painful - nearly fainted after and felt very nauseas. my pelvic region and lower back were also very sore afterwards. (even the next day). Pain to open bowels for the rest of that day and 2 days after. I noticed I have been urinating more, however I have also been drinking a lot more water so that could be why. I have had slight constipation a few days after the painful sexual intercourse but not so much now. Don't usually have PMS but had a lot this period. It is very painful to insert tampon, (same as pain during/after). This also makes it painful to pass bowels. All of these symptoms have come in the last 3/4 weeks and have never experienced them before. I researched my symptoms and I found that they were simliar to endometriosis... could I have it? Help me!

    I had endo for years and some of the symptoms you describe I had. Mine were:

    painful sex
    very painful periods
    very heavy flow
    painful bowel movements, particularly during period

    the insertion of tampons, no. The endo sits on the internal organs, usually around the uterus, ovaries and also the bowel and rarely other parts, so the vagina itself inside is not sore.

    When you say sex was painful, was it sharp pains in your tummy, or in your vagina?

    Did you use protection, as an STD could explain some of your symtoms.

    Hi hun
    Sounds more like pelvic inflammatory disease which is most commonly caused by an infection/ sti. You need to go to your gp and get checked out.
    Hope u feel better soon

    Yes PID was what I was thinking as well. Often comes from gonorrhea.

    I have used protection every time I have had sex so it really shouldn't be an STI.

    Also, my periods aren't really painful as such but they definitely feel different than usual.

    Woops sorry, no it wasn't painful in my vagina, only in my pelvic region (my lower tummy/bladder area)

    Well that would rule out an STD then, that's good news, and yes endo causes sharp stabbing pains where you describe.

    I would go see a GP. They will refer you to a gyno who will first do an ultrasound, then look at a procedure to insert a tiny camera and have a look then burn out the endo if that's what it is.
