Could my pain be endo?

I haven’t been diagnosed but trying to find out more about it.

My periods coming this weekend and since yesterday I’ve had contraction like pains in my back, more so my left hip and dull throbbing pain in my legs and right ovary. And for some reason I get pain just under/in my right rib and around that area definatly gets irritated a lot around my period.

Would this be endo spread out?

Hi Jemcc22,

I'm sorry to hear you are in pain, which does sound like it could be symptoms of endometriosis. With Endometriosis, where you feel pain doesn't necessarily mean that is where the actual endometriosis is, as sometimes it can be "referred" to other places. I would recommend you keep a pain diary and go to see your GP with all your symptoms so you can get a proper diagnosis of what could be wrong.

You can find an example template here:

I don't know if you are aware but Endometriosis UK also have some information sheets which you may find useful. You can find them here:

I hope this helps and let us know how you get on.
