First off, let me start by saying “there is nothing wrong with your daughter” and I can completely relate to what she is going threw. Currently, I am 37 years old and the proud mother of a wonderful healthy and very active 11-year-old boy.
From the time I was 9 y/o until now, I have had a total of, 5 maybe 6 periods total. My first was at 9 and it lasted all of a half day, the second was when I was 17, just after having a D&C - compliments of the US ARMY while on Active duty. My other 3 to 4 was all medically induces and I must say was more painful than labor pains.
I have always been a very physically active person (and still is) and have been seen by so many different Specialist, been on countless medications, and had numerous painful procedures, during my 12 years of active duty, that I my medical ID number was "flagged" with a special medical code. My husband (who is 2 years away from retirement from the Navy) fears my Medical history will turn me into a "Science Experiment" if we choose to change from TriCare to a civilian insurance company and their doctors.
Over the years, I have done extensive research as well as spoken to almost every child bearing woman in my family to get a better understanding of what was going on with me. The best answer I got came from a female GYN Major at Brooke Army Medical Center that sat me down and said to me “This is the way you were made and for some God given reason you defy all medical logic.” I’ve also found out that I am not alone. There are five other women in my family with the same history as well as countless fellow soldiers, many whom are currently on active duty.
There are some things that science can explain and there are many it cannot, this is one of the many. I ask this of you, before you subject your lovely daughter to any Gynecological procedure; please have her estrogen and progesterone levels check. If this was done for me over 20 years ago, I know I would not have been subjected to so many painful tests.
