Symptoms

Symptoms are your body’s way of alerting you to a problem.

The experience of endometriosis is not clearcut. For some women, endometriosis is extremely debilitating and has a significant impact on their day-to-day life. For others, it’s most apparent during their period. Yet still, there are those who don’t present with one of the most common symptoms – pelvic pain – and are only diagnosed through investigations into fertility or other conditions.

Symptoms can include:

  • Chronic pain, notably pelvic pain
  • Extreme period pain, including pelvic, back and leg pain.
  • Heavy or irregular periods
  • Blood clotting
  • Fatigue
  • Bloating (often called “the endo belly”)
  • Depression
  • Low immune system
  • Painful bowel or urine movements
  • Painful sex
  • Fertility complications
  • Nausea and vomiting with periods

Although I had my symptoms under control by the time I received my diagnosis, it was the confirmation I needed to treat this as endometriosis, not just period pain. Getting a clearcut diagnosis is an important step.
