MENSTRUAL CYCLE DYSFUNCTION- 5. Endometriosis

​Endometriosis is an inflammatory disease where the tissue that is similar to the lining of the ​uterus grows outside of the uterus. It can grow and attach to major organs such as the ​bowel, ovaries, kidneys and liver causing severe pain and dysfunction.


​Endometriosis normally gets misdiagnosed for normal PMS and can take many years to be ​formally diagnosed.


​Slight cramping and pain in your pelvic area and lower back the day before or the day of ​your period are normal symptoms. Pain that is a constant throbbing, stabbing or burning ​sensation is not normal.


​Endometriosis pain can last for days leaving you bedridden and can feel so bad it can cause ​vomiting. It can occur in your uterus, pelvic region, lower back, bladder, rectum and legs.


​Other symptoms of endometriosis include:

• Fatigue

• Crippling period pain

• Pain with urination and bowel movements

• Heavy bleeding

• Bleeding between periods

• IBS

• Vomiting

• Constipation

• Diarrhea

• Incontinence
