Long lasting ovulation pain
Have read the previous long post re ovulation pain which has helped me especially the description bowel/urine activity causing agonising pain as thats me!
I am 46 yrs old and perimenopausal and in past 18 months have only had two normal cycles and periods! I have just had hysteroscopy and D&C for irregular bleeding and spotting and flooding and all normal so its my hormones as they say.
Since a teenager I have experienced ovulation pain every month on right side lasting up to 2 days always ending on day 14 of cycle.
18 months ago when everything went haywire and my cycle could be from short to two months long I started getting ovulation pain at anytime of cycle and it was much much worse and lasted up to 5 days. I have had three ultrasound scans in last 18 months but everytime by time I get the scan the pain has gone and all is normal.
Also I can now go months without the pain but when I do get it its awful and last so long.
I call it the walking on eggs pain as everytime I stand up or sit down its like I am on eggs as I have to be that gentle!! Also I get the excrutiating pain just before I pass water or have a bowel movement it shoots from very low down right side of abdomen up to top of hip and over into back. If I press my lower abdomen very low down the pain is evil.
I have rushed to my Dr many times in last 18 months convinced I have appendicitis even though it is the same pain everytime and of course have blood test and its not appendicitis.
this last 18 months nothing is normal as I know it anymore so I don't know what is going to happen and I get in a panic. Previously whenever I got the ovulation pain I would know that it would go away everytime on day 14 but now everything is haywire I have no idea how long it will last.
this cycle I got to day 49!! and I started the ovulation pain and also slight bleeding and spotting. I am now on day 6 of this awful pain and its not getting any better.
Doe anyone else get this pain lasting long time??
