Endo periods?

Hi, I was diagnosed with Endo last year, I am 24 years old. My periods have always been on time but this month I'm 9 days late. I have done two pregnancy tests which both are negative. I am getting the same pain which I would if I was ovulating or having my period but there is no show. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks x

I can imagine hun..its horrible..try and get down to c ur doctor and let them know..but from my past experience and my sisters current experience Dr said that it is a symptom of the endo and not too worry too much...my little sisters 22 and her periods r terrible, last month I think she was 22 days late and this month she's at 19 and when her periods finally do turn up she can't move cuz the pain..but even still the Dr says it's normal as they've done all the hospital checks...deffo get yourself down thou so they can check it out properly

Whatttt!!! 22days? I'm always getting the shooting pains .. Really badly and then I think right it's gonna come and it doesn't! That doctor is ridiculous if they say that to me after 22 days I'm demanding a scan or something! That's horrific don't think they realise what we are dealing with daily, I'm really drained today just wish it would hurry up!!!!

I was 16 days late and went to my doctor who never seemed bothered and told me they will come I getting all the pain I usually get before I start plus left ovary pain and I believed something was wrong so begged my husband to take me to hospital and ran all kinds of tests including a ultrasound which came back that I had a cyst on my left ovary 3cm big they left it alone and blood tests were all fine had a negitive pregnancy test they sent me home on advice to rest and gave me stronger painkillers but some doctors can't wait to get u out the room quick enough and don't understand the impact this condition has on us but we know our bodies and know when something is wrong

I totally agree, last night I had a really strong pains and just took my med! I'm so glad you got back to me saying this because it makes me want to go to the doctors now! I'm sick of having all these problems it's killing me inside x

I hope you get sorted out its awful the pain we have to put up with I think you should maybe make a appointment with a different doctor they might listen but not all doctors listen I think if that doesn't help go up to the hospital and don't put up with pain your entitled to the care that all us woman deserve and sometimes keeping on at doctors and gynaecologist till they listen I spoke up and told them straight that I wasn't leaving till I got answers and that worked for me I hope you get better soon and here if you need to chat xc

Hey girls still nothing :( my doctor told me after a lap it can take up to 4 months to heal now me now getting very annoyed at this point said your telling me I may not have a period for 4 months and he said are you in as much pain as you were before the lap? and I'm not to be fair but the pain is still evident and he said well don't worry. Thing is it is stressing me out I'm just about to move and would like to start planning for a baby I feel like my time is running out with my ovaries/ womb and im stuck between a rock and hard place as my doctor won't help unless I refer myself to hospital but I'm not that bad to be in hospital im just extremely late and fed up of feeling lethargic and upset.
