What Endometriosis Pain Feels Like

I’ve experienced endo pain on so many different levels. In the beginning, I only had painful periods that would disrupt my life and lead to excruciating pain. But, as my endometriosis progressed, so did my discomfort. In addition to painful periods, I experienced chronic pelvic cramping, painful bowel movements, radiating leg pain, ovulation pain, and low back pain.

Additionally, it can also help to increase awareness and contribute to early diagnosis and treatment. Thus, decreasing the pain and dysfunction that many go through because of this debilitating condition.
