I have been having pain and cramping off and on, not just during my period. Also have cramping and pain after intercourse. This all started after the birth of my youngest child 2 and a half years ago. For the first 8-9 months after having my daughter, I would get extremely bad pains that would cause me to double over. Sometimes the pains would be not extreme, but would last several hours at a time. I went to my OB/GYN several times for the pains and cramps. He did a couple exams and had an internal ultrasound done. During the ultrasound I started having pain and the tech said that my uterus was moving. She said that can been seen at times right before someone starts their period. I however, was over 2 weeks away from mine. During my next Dr appt, he said that there was nothing abnormal seen on my ultrasound. I mentioned the movement the tech stated at the time of the test and the Dr told me that it was impossible for any movement to happen. He then told me that there was NO MEDICAL reason for my pains. Why is it that if some Drs don't know what is going on the pretty much say that it is all in your head?!?! I do not get the extreme pains as much anymore, but I cramp about 3 weeks a month on average. This is not normal and is not a great way to live. What can I do? I need someone to listen to me and to take me seriously! Please Help!!! Thank you.
