Does anyone else get PMS symptoms exactly 2 weeks before their period starts? It’s so crazy to me that I get all of the symptoms (including the bad cramps) and I still have like 10 days until my actual period is supposed to come.

    Yes, by the end (laparoscopy), it was so bad I thought it was my actual period and then I’d get surprised with my real one two weeks later. They’ve now told me that is an indication of an Endometrioma. I just had a 9cm and a 6cm one removed from each ovary. The reason is that when you ovulate, the Endometrioma flares from attempted egg release and causes period symptoms and leaks blood.

    Yes! Before my excision surgery I was having symptoms about 25 days out of each month, with usually about 5 days in a row of feeling good. You aren’t alone ❤️ are you planning to have a surgery anytime soon?

    Yes I get PMS symptoms 2 weeks before , ovulation pain a week before and the initial cycle pain or discomfort itself. It’s like a 3 week cycle of pain everytime.😞

    @LivMalavazos I’ve already had 1 excision surgery but a year ago. My doctor said It looks like endo grew back already based on my symptoms and my ultrasound. He’s hesitant to do another surgery since it just turned a year since I’ve had my last one & im not a big fan of birth control so I’ve just been trying to push through until my next surgery 😭
