In brief: Intensity
Low back pain the is getting longer and more intense is always suspicious of endometriosis.
A limited amount of pain that precedes your menses by a day or two and is relieved by itself by day two of your flow is often normal. Don't tough it out . If you can take an NSAID (ibuprofen or Naproxen sodium) right when the pain starts and decrease the length and pain. Consult your gynecologist.
