How do i know if i have endometriosis?Watch
You cannot self diagnose medical conditions like this.
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?
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.
