Very painful period, huge blood clots
Hi

I have been suffering for a long while now with the following symptons with my monthly,

Very severe pain up to the point, where I cant function, severe nausea, I often get cysts, that enlarge with my period, I also have severe clots and very heavy periods, I have thourght it could be endometriosis, but sometimes think perhaps this is normal, but am considering going very seriously to go back to my Gynae, I have already had 2 boys aged 10 and 12, I am 34yrs old, My mom when she was younger actually had her womb turn upside down, do you think this is happening to me

Please I need advice

thanks

It certainly sounds like endometriosis could be a possibility. I think that you should go back to your gynaecologist.
