For the past year or so I have had persistent pain in the lower right abdomen, hip and groin area. The pain comes and goes, some days feeling like a sore hip and others like period cramps or an upset stomach. I have also had a bunch of other random health issues like hormonal acne, spotting, pain with sex, mood swings, diarrhea and loss of appetite. I’ve had three ultrasounds (pelvic, transvaginal, abdominal), an echo, pap smear, colonoscopy, and a few rounds of blood work. All came back normal besides two small cysts on my right ovary, which my gynecologist said are too small to be causing pain. I also have a Mirena IUD.
I’ve done some research online and think it could be endometriosis, but the gynecologist said the Mirena IUD is the treatment for endo so it wouldn’t make sense to start having symptoms while I’m on it. Does anyone else have experience with this or similar issues? Thank you!!
