I am really confused..

Lately I have been having abdominal pain which I mistood for period pains at first.. The problem with this is that I have very irregular periods and so am never sure if that is what is causing the problem.

I looked onto the internet to find out about my symtoms as I realised that I have been having intestinal bleeding instead of my period, the abdominal pain and inconsistent bowl movements - possibly food poisoning.. I checked to find out if it was something else.. and found out about endometriosis. It talked about it occuring in women of child bearing age but I have no idea what age this is.. could it be as young as 17/18?

Also is it possible that these same symtoms could be caused by pregnancy?

Any help would be really appreciated :confused:

  • I also experience these symptoms from time to time. I was told I had endometriosis the first time I ever visited a gyno...I was having heavy periods and bad menstrual pain. I was like 15, a virgin, and scared to death. I am now 28, and the "pill" has helped me greatly with these symptoms. I still have them from time to time. In fact, it's a week before my period and I am already having what feels like menstrual cramps. Have you seen a gyno? You may inquire about the "pill" to help regulate you.
