The retroverted uterus is also pushing on the rectum and is lower in your pelvis (pop) which may make stool transit more difficult. What does you doctor think? Have you tried a pessary? ...Read more

I am having intense rectal pain during menses. Please help me telling the causes. Endometriosis?

Agree with above and: Our research that will be published soon shows two very accurate predictions of endometriosis. First, if you had bad periods (worse than peers or missed school )as a teenager, you have nearly 100% chance of endo at surgery.

The above could add to the accuracy of endo as diagnosis. ...Read more

Good luck and don't worry. ...Read more
