Does Anyone Else Experience Severe Fatigue At Ovulation?

Does Anyone Else Experience Severe Fatigue At Ovulation?

Hi ladies,

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.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there anything I can try to help it (avoiding the pill as that made my fatigue significantly worse)? Could… read more

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 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.

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.

Yes I experience this as well. I'm dead to the world for a few days a month, usually right before my period. I always feel guilty for being so tired but there's nothing I can do about it

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
