Endometriosis symptoms


Endometriosis can take anywhere from 6 to 10 years to be properly diagnosed.

Endometriosis is not a “one size fits all” chronic condition and is more than just a “bad period.” In fact, there are many different symptoms of endometriosis. Some women with endometriosis may experience a range of symptoms, while others may experience none at all. Every woman’s symptoms are different.

There are many symptoms of endometriosis, but the most common symptoms are:

  • Painful periods: your gynecologist may call this dysmenorrhea (DIS-men-uh-REE-uh)
  • Pelvic pain in between periods: your gynecologist may call this non-menstrual pelvic pain
  • Pain with sex: your gynecologist may call this dyspareunia (DIS-puh-ROO-nee-uh)
