    Yep hurts for me too. Just had my first cycle after DS was born and thought maybe it was going to go away! No such luck!

    I find gentle walking helps. Like super slow. Also heat packs. Other than that like PP says just being gentle to myself and knowing it will pass.

    Not yet. I've been avoiding it, but I really need to. All the signs are pointing to it.

    I had mild endo and very painful ovulation, like excruciating, as in I felt like I was being stabbed and torn apart from the inside. I had the endo removed which helped, but it didn't go away. I discovered while doing IVF that I have very sensitive ovaries. I had to take strong pain killers for each egg collection otherwise I could barely move afterwards. Ouch!

    I never knew it was an endo thing until I was diagnosed. I only started having the pain since coming off the pill last year. When we ttc our first I never had o pain at all.. Now I sure do know it! I got mine lasered off.. Was stage 1 at the time..

    Got stage 1 endo, only have pain after ovulation but not a lot. I have crazy pain when af arrives but iit's better since having the operation for it. Also had pain like a bladder infection quite regulary. It felt like something was on my bladder all the time. Turns out most the endo was there

    I must be lucky. I've had extensive endo removed twice in 2 years but never felt any pain. I get mild cramping and a headache for 3 days around AF. The headache is borderline migraine so not pleasant
