I am a 25 year old female.
I began my periods aged 9 and have always suffered really bad with them.
My first ovarian cyst to burst (that I know of) was when I was 15 and happened to occur the same day I needed my appendix out.
Again one burst when I was 18 and 20 on holidays with my family.
I became sexually active at 19 and up until 22 my sex life was all normal.
For the last 3 years sex is unbearable and my periods are non existent.
On December 6th 2015 I was rushed to hospital by ambulance at 5am with was then confirmed an ovarian torison as yet another cyst erupted.I was dosed up on morphine and sent home.
Again January 2016 a chocolate cyst erupted leading me to the E.R once more but again doped up and sent home.
I have been trying to get a gynae appointment but constantly ignored.
March 4th 2016 I was admitted with extremely pelvic pain ... AGAIN.
My pain scale is a solid 10 / 10 and honestly even morphine doesn't help.
I was told I have a large number of follicles and was promised a gynae appointment that I am STILL waiting for even though I'm pretty sure I warrant one at this stage.
My last period was January 29th 2016 which lasted 10 days and nothing since.
I have no quality of life like I should at 25.Some days I feel I'd be better of dead than living like this.
My GP thinks my thyroid has been affected and I am now awaiting blood results.
Has anyone else been constantly fobbed off like this?.I feel I've been forgotten about and completely let down by medical professionals 😢
