Endometriosis: Serious pain and nausea/vomiting/diarrhea are usual components of periods with endometriosis. You should consider oral bcp to reduce the pain, etc, and prevent potential infertility, which is very frequent with endometriosis. Even if you are not sexually active at present, the oral bcp will abbreviate the occurrence of endometriosis, and your periods will be much less painful.
