Endometriosis Awareness Day 3

A lot of doctors over look the symptoms of Endometriosis. I honestly believe it is because they are uneducated in the subject. Do your best to educate yourself.. it is more then likely someone you know (besides me) has Endometriosis.

The most common symptoms of Endometriosis are:
Pain before and during periods
Pain with intercourse
General, chronic pelvic pain throughout the month
Low back pain
Heavy and/or irregular periods
Painful bowel movements, especially during menstruation
Painful urination during menstruation
Diarrhea or constipation

Other symptoms which are common with Endometriosis include:
Low grade fevers
Hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar)
Susceptibility to infections, allergies
