Endometriosis

Elliee

I think i might have endometriosis and Idk what to do
No one takes me seriously about it but for example the pain i get during My period is so bad no painkillers work and i can barely get Any sleep
Also sometimes it hurts really bad when i pee and then it just goes back to normal then hurts again
Also sometimes My vagina just throbs randomly and it's geting worse
Idk what should i do? Could i have Endometriosis?

Go to a doctor if you are worried

The only way to get diagnosed for endometriosis is to have a laparoscopy surgery. Do you bleed real heavily? Does your back hurt? And the urination isn’t an complication of it. You may have a UTI or something.

UTI?

Hi Cat8. If you are a Facebook user check out the page Nancy’s nook. It has loads of information about endometriosis and is a great start if you want to find a doctor who knows what they are talking about. Severe pain during periods is one pretty good indicator of endo unfortunately but the previous poster is correct - the only way to get diagnosed is laparoscopy and it’s really important that is done by a specialist in endo (not every gynae is).
