There’s no exclusive list of symptoms that mean you’ve absolutely 100% got endometriosis. After all, a lot of us suffer from various aches and pains all the time (ie. age!) and we can’t always assume the worst with every tweak and twinge.
However, as a guideline, if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s definitely worth a trip to the doctor’s to hear their thoughts:
- Pelvic pain
- Painful periods
- Heavy periods
- Pain or cramps during sex
- Painful bowel movements or/and urination
- Pain in lower back or abdomen
- Lack of energy
This list is by no means exhaustive and neither it is a 100% concrete list of proof that you have endo. But, if you are suffering with chronic pains in any of these areas, heavy periods or painful sex, it’s probably best to get yourself checked by your physician, just to be on the safe side.
