Hello. Before I started using birth control I used to get the most excruciating cramps to where I was bed-ridden and once I even fainted from the pain. Now, I no longer deal with that pain thanks to birth control. However, I have always worried that I may have a growth of fibroids or endometriosis. After several trips to the OBGYN and after several attempts of expressing my concerns to them, they seem to tell me not to worry about it. Now, after just giving up on my concerns, a new one has erupted. I now find that sex is painful just about every time I have sex. It used to be just every now and then, but now it seems to be constant. The pain occurs with deep penetration. Finally, a slight recommendation was made the last time I seen yet another new OBGYN after expressing this other concern on top of my old previous concerns. He said that he can do a small noninvasive procedure to where he cuts a small slit beneath my belly button to look for any signs of fibroids or endometriosis. I am just wondering if I should go through with this as all the other doctor's before him told me not to worry about it now that I am on birth control. But the pain from sex is really irritating and very unfortunate. Do you have any advice for me? Thank you so much.
