Hi everyone. I have endo and have had it removed via laser under a general gyne in October. Have a few twinges and painful days but not as much as I had which was 24/7 and not being able to walk because of the pain.
For over 2 years I've had a problem with my gums swelling. I've seen the dentist and oral health wise I floss twice a day brush twice a day and mouthwash after both. I've recently noticed a pattern of each month 4 weeks exactly my gums swell to the point where I feel like I'm going to lose a tooth, my dentist just thinks it's poor oral hygiene and has dismissed it's anything else.
Does anyone else suffer with swelling gums that go down after their period?
For the week that it happens I can't eat or sleep its that painful I don't know who to see my gp, consultant or dentist.
It's hard enough going to an appointment with period pains and medics not believing me without me going in with a story about my gums swelling monthly.
