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.

Here are some conversations about endo belly:

I'm once again meant to be on my time of the month. My mind is uncomfortable and I feel my belly is really sticking out.

Painful bloating... I'm over this! Been over 5yrs and still can't find relief from it.

No relief on the swelly belly. This pregnant looking belly has been causing me a lot of emotional distress. What do you do to find relief?

Here are some question and answer threads about endo belly:

Does anyone else notice they jump dress sizes during their period?

Has anyone noticed they have stretch marks from bloating?
