For about three years I have had severe menstrual cramps. It gets so bad that I can't even walk or stand up. I usually throw up, get chills, diarrhea, nausea, dizziness. It's usually a left side pain during my period, mainly through my back and lower abdomen.
I have been to my doctor and all they have done is prescribed some pain medication, but not even the strongest that he can prescribe helps.
I was told to see a gynecologist but I am only 17 and I am not sexually active. My family believes in staying intact until marriage and I don't think I'm too comfortable letting someone down below.
If anyone has experienced what I have been going through, please comment. I really need the help right now.
