Symptoms of Endometriosis

While each woman may experience symptoms of endometriosis differently, the most common symptoms include:

  • Pain and cramps that may be felt in the abdomen or lower back during your period
  • Pain during sex
  • Abnormal or heavy menstrual flow
  • Infertility
  • Fatigue
  • Painful urination during your periods
  • Painful bowel movements during your periods
  • Other gastrointestinal problems, such as diarrhea, constipation and/or nausea

The amount of pain a woman has isn’t always related to the severity of the disease. Endometriosis can be managed with early diagnosis and treatment options. Consult your physician if you're experiencing any of the symptoms of endometriosis.
