Hello so i’ve always had bad period pain which is pretty normal i guess but i also never could eat anything especially on the first day because of the pain and nausea. However, for the past one and a half years my period has gotten even worse to the point where i was vomiting all day and couldn’t get out of bed each time so i’d leave a bucket at the side of my bed. I didn’t think anything of it though but recently i’ve seen people talk about it on tiktok and how they have endometriosis? I’ve started taking 2 ibuprofens as soon as i start my period for the past 3 months and haven’t vomited since. Could i still have it or is it just regular symptoms of a period?

You cannot self diagnose medical conditions like this.

This is a question for a doctor not TSR or tiktok. Endometriosis is serious and not managed with a couple of ibuprofen

I’d say it’s not normal, and it’s worth going to see your gp about. It may not be endometriosis, but there could be something wrong. Always best to check Xxx

Endometriosis is diagnosed by doing keyhole surgery to look inside your pelvis with a camera. If you are worried about having this, see your GP but to me, if your symptoms are controlled by ibuprofen, that just sounds like normal period pain.

My GP has on my file that I have endometriosis due to my severe pain that couldn't be controlled by ibuprofen or the usual prescription painkillers they give for period pain, bc my pain wasn't unusually bad in other parts of my body, not just in my stomach and I have a regular but short cycle which are all indicators.
I was told a true diagnosis would require a general anaesthetic and laparoscopy (camera inside) but she didn't think it was necessary to go through all that when there's no real cure for endo anyway. My doctors are just stopping my period completely so I've gone on the progesteron only pill to see if that will stop them.
