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.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about endometriosis and periods:

Can endo cause your periods to basically stop? Worried and need advice, please!

Has laparoscopic surgery interfered with my cycle?

I had a normal period last month but this month my period was not normal... what should I do?

Here are some conversations about endometriosis and periods:

My cycles are so irregular it gives me so much anxiety.

Woke up this morning with period pains. They have been bad the last 2 or 3 months. Feels like my insides are gonna fall out...

Having my cycle for the first time in four months, and it's hurting so bad.

Have another topic you'd like to discuss or explore? Go to MyEndometriosisTeam today and start the conversation. You'll be surprised just how many others may share similar stories.

Feel free to ask a question here.
