Hurting like hell after periods - dark brown discharge
I started my periods Saturday, my last day was Tuesday. Today I have terrible pain and a dark brown discharge. My back is killing me. What could be happening? My husband and I are trying for a baby the last year, nothing. I have endometriose. All I know is I am hurting like hell.

If you have endometriosis, this could well be causing your pain. I presume that you are having treatment b ut it can take up to 6 months before the tretament relieves your symptoms.
