I've always had really bad period pains. to the point where I'm on the floor unable to move bc the pain is too bad. (i have a relatively high pain tolerance and any time i complain about something hurting, you know its REALLY bad.) but yeah it makes me nauseous and extremely tired. I end up having to take days off from school/work every month bc of how bad it is. I ended up going on birth control about a year ago which stops my period and it's a life saver for me. But, I still get random cramps sometimes (not even close to how bad they used to be) but I'm still concerned. all of the doctors I've talked to about it said "some pain is normal with your period" but I don't think the level of pain I get with a period is normal at all. I've always felt something is wrong/off with my uterus or reproductive system. maybe endometriosis? I don't know what to do next or where to go. should I be concerned? I just need advice or education on what it might be.

      before i was diagnosed with endometriosis i had the exact same experience. terrible cramping that put me in the hospital and then once i was on birth control it almost stopped except for random cramping. for me, i felt birth control was more of a bandaid for my problems so i decided to get off of it and get an exploratory laparoscopy. from there they found endometriosis and we’re able to burn it off which helped SO much along with diet changes (gluten free) i know how it feels to struggle with period/abdominal pain and i just want you to know there is hope and you can find relief! wishing you the best on your health journey and sending a lot of healing vibes your way!!!
