Period Cycles and Endometriosis

Posted on March 14, 2018

Women with endometriosis often experience pain during their periods. Living with endo can mean a constant struggle against pain, especially at different points in the cycle. In addition, different treatments and procedures can affect their menstrual cycle, including how regularly they have their periods.

On MyEndometriosisTeam, the social network and online support group for women living with endometriosis members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. The impact of endo on periods is one of the top 10 topics that members discuss.
