    I'm 33yrs old, about 5yrs ago I was diagnosed with IBS (or so we thought). Debilitating abdominal pain with bowel movements and arousal (especially with orgasm) and tender breasts. Noticed a pattern, symptoms were always 2weeks before my period (I'm on birth control). Thinking it was hormone related my doctor decided to change my birth control to a higher dosage and have me take it continously (no periods). The IBS symptoms have stopped but I have spontaneous bleeding & cramping every couple days and with any kind of arousal (even reading a erotic book). No pain with intercourse only major cramping with orgasm (i have a very supportive husband thank goodness).
    Have had pelvic exam, ultrasound nothing showed up. My doctor ended sending me to a gyno this week. He told me I was an odd case. But he too is concerned it may be endometriosis. He wants to start me on Lupron shot next week, another shot in 12weeks and to do a follow up exam to see if symptoms have subsided. I'm nervous about taking the Lupron but we'll see what happens. I just want to know what is wrong with me I'm alittle scared. Has anyone had these symptoms or could tell me if we're looking in the wrong direction.
    Thanks so much
