I have pain all month long, worsening at CD20 when I start spotting (actually more like light bleeding). This tends to reduce over the next 5-6 days and by the time it's the day before my proper period is due to start - (27 day cycle - the pain is nearly gone! This has happened for the last few months. Seems weird to have this pattern. Does anyone else experience it? (I then have only moderately bad period cramps. My issue is that I have pain all month long.)
(I had a lap positive for endo 10+ years ago but minimal symptoms. Constant pain 2.5 years ago but lap neg. Still in pain so booked in for another lap with endo specialist in 6 weeks.)
Is the letting up of pain BEFORE a period characteristic of endo?
