Hi there! I’m being investigated for endo or any other problem. I wanted to share my symptoms so if anyone who has endo can say if my symptoms are similar.
My first one is very very heavy periods I use around 50 pads per period and I layer multiple pads on top at one time. I also hve a lot of pain that painkillers dosent help and it feels like a burning , squeezing pain. I also have painful bowel and urinating on my period. I also feel very nauseas. Outside my period I have a lot of pin after peeing and it feels like a mini period. I get random shooting pains also inside my butt. I’m also very bloated. When I lay down my lower back hurts so much.

I don't have endo, but I get pain when opening my bowels/passing urine during periods too. I also get period pain when not on my period (throughout most of my cycle really).

Hope you get an answer as to what's going on.

i’m so sorry you’re experiencing this. Feminax is good for pain. Please go back to your gp and ask to be referred to gynaecology!! they can look into the problem and help you properly. I would recommend a menstrual cup and / or period pants to help with the amount of bleeding. They can hold much more than pads. I’ve tried period pants from floweret and i thought they were really good!! best of luck

I definitely agree with you!
I have the period pants from floweret too and they're incredible. I think I have like 5 or so.
I have an incredibly heavy flow during my periods and they hold so much. I also recommend the reusable pads too. They're so much better for the environment. Also the cup, not only is it better for the environment, but it also is better than wearing tampons too. Less likely to get tss since there's no chemicals involved, all that's needed is to sterilise it in boiling water and you can also get washes for them too. Highly recommend. If your cautious about them, there's loads of videos online talking about them and they do different sizes for different flows and stuff,

I get similar symptoms. The pain I have isn't quite extreme throughout the whole period, but the first couple days it literally hurts to move any part of my body. I never considered it could be anything like this. I though it was just heavy periods. I went to my gp and all they recommended was Rigevidon, which I recommend you don't take, it did nothing but make it worse and more irregular for me, as well as making me break out more and gain weight. I'd do what the quoted person said and go to the gp and ask specifically to see a gynocologist. Speaking to a specialist of the medical field is probably the best thing to do here, instead of just talking to a general practitioner that is. A specialist will have more knowledge on the subject and is less likely to tell you to just take some pain killers and be on your way (which is unfortunately the case for a lot of people)

Also, to help with the back pain, maybe try lying down on your back with a hot water bottle and a rolled up towel under the arch of your back by the bottom of your spine (or wherever it hurts) and put your feet flat on the surface beneath you so your legs are bent (I hope this makes sense). I've recently started doing this on my periods and it really eases my back pain, it may not be affective, but you might as well try it, what's the worst that can happen?

I hope some if this helps x I wish you the best of luck

Before anyone hops in and criticises this, I am very well aware this is the wrong word. It was 4 am. I was shattered 😂
