I have Pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and as a result my periods have always been really weird, naturally. but i was overweight and the doctors always told me that losing weight will work well to help my pcos. so i have been slowly losing weight as i've been getting older and am noticing a change.

before the pattern was that i'd only get a period maybe once a year and sometimes it would be a couple of dots and then nothing. now i still don't get them every month but i do get periods maybe once every two-three months and they will be full periods, heavy with clots etc but in the past years i was lucky not to get any period pains, i'd usually get them the day before but not on the day

this time i got the pains before and then during. i've had bad stomach cramps for about 5 days now and yet have only had period for 3 days.

also there are huge clots (nothing new) but the new thing i'm noticing is the strong musky smell that is coming. yeah i know periods are naturally smelly but it was never so strong that you could smell it everytime you walked. from yesterday till today the smell has been soooo strong that i almost gag. and it smells weird, sort of like a strong fishy smell mixed with a rotting corpse smell. (i know, tmi!) it just smells a lot and the smell is soooo overbearing

what i want to know is, does this sound like endometriosis? is one of the signs of endometriosis having a horrible strong odor coming from your downstairs as well as ongoing cramps?

I had/have PCOS. I found out two years ago. I would not get regular periods. However, when I visited the GP and she told me I had PCOS, weirdly my period became normal.

Idk about the smell but the cramps and the huge clots point towards it. My mum is diagnosed with endo and I know that she gets awful cramps and huge clots during her period. Get seen by a GP to make it official! In the mean time, hot water bottle, pain killers and a mug of hot lemon tea or ginger tea will help you.

No I don't. You should check with the GP though. Try a diet change and eat more fruits and vegetables.

Every time you’ve gotten your period, it seems like it’s a surprise. Good luck!
