Is endometriosis characterized by excessively heavy periods?

Asked 2 years ago

I have been diagnosed with endometriosis. After months of not knowing why I was experiencing such severe bloating, pain, and discomfort in my belly, I finally have answers. However, now I have even more questions about how having endometriosis will affect my periods. Does anybody know if having endometriosis will make me have a heavier flow?

Sorry to hear that you have endometriosis. Most women with endometriosis often report having heavy periods along with severe pain that ranges from unbearable to debilitating. However, some women with this condition experience light spotting or irregular periods. It depends on the woman in question but most commonly endometriosis comes along with a heavier flow. Unfortunately, there's no cure for endometriosis but there are different ways to ease the discomfort you feel.
