Hi....I have read a lot about Endometriosis on this platform and I must say I have learned a lot... I am having some symptoms similar but it just mine pains is not that much. Though I have a growth on my bellybutton but may shrink for more than 2 weeks and without pains but my worry is I have been bleeding during my menses period for about 4 months now and only feel pains during this period. Is there possibility that it's not Endo? Could it be umblical infection? Because I reside in Africa where many people including medical practitioners don't know about Endo. The last time I visited a doctor he was as confused as I was. Pls I really need advice on what to do.
