I've had heavy, painful periods ever since my first one, sometimes highly irregular, and always involving severe cramping, muscle pain, joint pain, diarrhea, nausea, and headaches. Once I started birth control most of those symptoms went away until recently, with the recurring sharp pain and the irregular periods/spotting, as well as chronic headaches. Does anyone have any insight into what I should ask my doctor about? We've already done STI testing (lmao) and a pelvic ultrasound/transvaginal exam, we're just waiting for the results.

      @kittycrime Alr! I'm excited for you! I've had all your symptoms that you described, even the diarrhea (which I'm glad you were brave enough to bring up, seems like it's something that gets ignored). I however can't give any good advice since you're farther ahead than me; I've kinda been too scared to get an exam. Godspeed!

      I mean, I personally would wait for the results to take the next step! Do you know how long it'll be before you get them?

        @Blinky I'm supposed to see her again on Wednesday, so hopefully everything has processed by then.
