When should I seek help?
Endometriosis can sometimes get better by itself, but it can also progress over time.
If your periods are unusually painful or if you are experiencing pain that is stopping you from attending school or taking part in day-to-day activities and your pain cannot be controlled by taking a warm bath or by taking simple pain relief medications, such as paracetamol, mefenamic acid or ibuprofen, this is NOT normal.
It’s a good idea to tell your parent/guardian and to make an appointment with your GP as early as possible.
