Pain free periods before to painful periods?

I see a lot of people talking about how they always had painful periods but has anyone else had pain free periods for years then got painful periods. I swear I used to have complete pain free periods not even a twinge and now I have painful periods at age 26

For the first year/year and a half my periods started they were a breeze 2/3 days light as anything pain free and then one month it just hit me like a brick wall, the heaviest, most painful, longest periods I'd ever experience and they've never settled down or gone away ☹️ xx

See I’ve had pain free periods forever like honestly not one pain. As I got in to my mid twenties i noticed period cramps and ovulation pain then now at 26 I had horrendous lower back pain then a horrendous period.

I mean just because I didn’t have bad periods as a teen doesn’t mean it wasn’t lying around of course

Well like my surgeon said with endometriosis anything is possible! I've found since they got really bad and I've had pain in between my periods getting some of those cheapy ovulation tests from Poundland help me track where on my messed up cycle the pain correlates most with and it does tend to be mostly around ovulation x

I’ve read women having endo and only finding out when they try for a baby. Such a messed up illness that it can be so different in different people

Very messed up! Makes me completely and irrationally angry towards people who take their fertility and kids for granted 😓😪
