I had endometriosis diagnosed and excised last August after suffering from incapacitating pain at the start of my period for over a decade, plus a host of other weird gynae problems that were increasing over time. I've been really pleased that the worst of the pain on the first couple of days of my cycle has lessened, and I can function through it now (rather than being stuck in/on the loo for hours!), which is brilliant. However, for the last four months I've had the same sort of pain I used to get on the first day of my period on day 9 of my cycle. This is super confusing, because my period usually stops on day 5 or 6, and my cycle is usually 27 days, so day 9 is rather early for it to be ovulation pain. Plus, it's not one sided, like ovulation pain - it's a really heavy, dragging, crampy pain, low down and central, exactly like my period is starting, just a week and a half late!
I know endo is weird and unpredictable and no one really knows what it gets up to or why it causes half the symptoms it does, but does anyone have an idea of why this might be happening?!
