I have had a baby and I am 20 years old. I have never had any problems in the past.
I have been having lower abdominal pain for about 7 months now. I hurt almost constantly, the pain is worse when I am on my period, my periods are irregular, fatigue,
some fever (on and off), severe mood swings, bloating, and its very painful during intercourse. I have had a scope about a month ago and my doctor didn't find much.
He wants to wait 3 more months to see if anything gets any better since my scope. I also don't think he is very interested. I can't take birth control because my body produces too much serotin. I am really getting depressed over this and it is affecting my marriage because I can't have sex. Please, any suggestions.

Are you on medications? Was the birth vaginal or C-section?

Keep in mind that your hormones could be out of whack for a long time after giving birth. The extra stress of a new baby can take the sex drive out of anyone and your body is still healing itself from the birth.

Keep in close contact with your physician with regular check-ups of this condition. Be patient. LIfe will calm about 18 years. :wink:
