Since having dd2 (15 months ago) my periods have got worse and worse, im doubled over mid month with ovulation pains, and then my period lasts 10-12 days, i spend most of the month in pain, with PMT or bleeding (sorry if TMI), surely this is'nt normal?

It is not normal.

Would suggest you see your GP asap with a view to getting a referral to a gynae. Problems like fibroids and or endometriosis cannot be ruled out here.

Would any of these conditions show up on a smear? i had a smear last week and am waiting on the resaults, i told the nurse about my symptoms, she asked me a few questions but did'nt say anything about referral.

Realy worried now

I dont realy know much about these things, i think my mum had tibroids, what is endometriosis?

Endometriosis can cause severe period pains to arise. will have more information.

Neither of these conditions would show up on a smear test. You need help from a gynaecologist asap, this is not something that you should readily put up with. I would go to your GP and insist that you are referred to a gynae asap as this is interfering with your day to day life; not just to say quality of.

Thankyou AttilaTheMeercat

Just spoke to my mum on the phone and she conformed that she had fibroids and her sister has them (so it seems to be in the family)

I will go and see my GP next week and see if he can refer me to a gyne.

Thankyou all for your advice.
