Doctor :   is there any foul smelling discharge from vagina?
User :   i always get bad cramps the first few days of my period but this pain is always here with really bad bouts maybe twice a month no smelly discharge
Doctor :   ok. if these symptoms have started after the childbirth, then possibility of adenomyosis, endometriosis, and adhesions cannot be ruled out.
User :   ok so what do I do to find out?
Doctor :   you will need to get thorough examination by a gynecologist along with investigations to come to teh exact cause
User :   how to get I my doctor to refer me when he keeps just saying its constipation?
Doctor :   it might need a Laparoscopy to be done to see what is going on
