Hi ladies! I posted for the first time here a few days ago! I suspect I have endometriosis and have been dealing with symptoms since I got my period at age 13. Here is my previous post with some background:
So right now I am ovulating. I am unsure how long ovulation usually takes but I have been experiencing pelvic pain since Monday and I suspect it's because I am ovulating. Normally I wouldn't pay attention to which part of my cycle I am in because I don't know, however I saw a doctor on Monday who did an ultrasound so I know I am ovulating.
ANYWAY...Monday my pain was really low grade but it was there. I even thought that maybe it was just psychological since I've been stressed out about this endo business.
But once I felt the more prevalent shooting pains (minor but there) it was clear that it IS here and it's not my brain.
So now it's Thursday and I have been experiencing lower back pain, pain in my lower belly (sometimes I'm not sure what is my the pelvic pain and what isn't), bloating (something I regularly experience even upon eating small amounts of food or even water)..
These past few days, when I squeeze my belly while urinating (as I write this I thought to myself "why do I squeeze our while urinating?") I feel some lower belly/pelvic pain like minor period cramps.
Do these things sound familiar?
