My tummy pains were period pains. I didn’t know that they were period pains but my support worker (I have learning disabilities) took me to the doctors. I hadn’t met the doctor before but she told me who she was and smiled at me. She asked me if I had period pains a lot. I didn’t know if every time my tummy hurt it was period pains but it might be. She told me I can take painkillers or a different pill if it hurts badly and that a hot water bottle might make me feel better. I’ve tried a hot water bottle and sometimes it does help and sometimes it doesn’t. The doctor gave me some leaflets but I can’t read them so I put them in the bin.
