Pain after period

For the last few months I've got off pretty much scott free in terms of period pain, but this month I've been absolutely knocked sideways by pain after my period. This morning I could barely get out of bed. The only way to describe it is a feeling like I'm carrying rocks in my lower abdomen.

I've always had pain after my period until around mid cycle when I think I ovulate (although not sure I actually do due to my ovaries being fused together with endo), but this month's been pretty awful.

I also have fibroids so wondered if that could also be a factor.

Anyone else experience pain after their period?

  • Hello, yes I am in constant debilitating pain along with bloating, nausea,headaches and exhaustion. What pain relief are you taking? Have you tried changing your diet and cutting out wheat and diary seems to help some ladies. Another lady recommended a tens machine for pain relief. Best wishes xx

  • I take mainly paracetamol. My GP has prescribed co-codamol but it tends to make me sick. I've been told not to take anti-inflamatories as we are trying for a baby.

    I'm currently trying to lose weight so have more or less cut out wheat and dairy from my diet (apart from the occasional bowl of cereal or sandwich) since the new year. I know dietary changes are highly recommended in the treatment of endo but I've found it flares up more when I'm being careful about what I eat. The same thing happened last time I went on a diet. This could be coincidence of course.

    Have you changed your diet at all?
