Endo Belly

Posted on May 10, 2018

Do you experience bloating? Sometimes called "endo belly," extreme bloating can cause the stomach to protrude and become noticeably bigger. For some women, this occurs during their period. For others, it becomes constant. Dealing with bloating can take an emotional toll.

On MyEndometriosisTeam, the social network and online support group for women living with endometriosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Endo belly is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
