After years of symptoms, I have been under a gyno consultant this year who suspects I have endometriosis. I am awaiting an official diagnosis but experience the majority of endo symptoms.
Every month, around 1-2 days after ovulation, I experience severe, debilitating fatigue that lasts a couple of days.

This is my constant struggle ! Reserving my energy for what really needs to get done & on my good days zipping around like the Tasmanian devil ! I have been trying to do better in all areas , eating , sleeping , keeping my body moving / walking for fitness & keeping up with supplements . Despite all of the effort , the exhaustion is still part of life . Meditation has been helpful with the mind body connection & I try to do that daily .
I get extremely tired a week before my periods are due also after I have had a busy day I have these days where I feel really energetic and not in any pain so I do so much that day then i feel so sore achy and tired the next day.
I tried to track my exhaustion - definitely right before and right after my period and right around ovulation... but that ends up being most of the month! More good days then bad. I feel like I'm always exhausted but then some days are kind of unbearable. And I used to be such an energetic person! super athletic, love to be busy.. I hate this so much. I had no idea it could be linked to endo until reccntly and finding out has made my teary - reading these stories, finding and answer - and also furious because no one ever told me and none of the doctors i've been to have taken me seriously.
Happens to me quite often, especially after my periods. Getting out of bed becomes such a struggle and end up not going to work. Very few people understand this. I've never discussed fatigue yet with my obs/ Gyn. I think I should coz it's such an issue
