Severe period pain at END of period

I've always had quite bad period pain at the start of my period but for the past few months I've been getting it on the last day-2 days too. It's really painful. Doctor isn't concerned.

Anyone else?

Pain at the end of a period can be a symptom of endometriosis. Can you see a different GP? Anything unusual for you should be checked out, especially as it’s not a one off.

Endometriosis UK is a good site for info.

Unfortunately it is often very hard to get gynae problems taken seriously 😡. I had to move abroad to get my diagnosis!

I was going to say endometriosis too. Do you have any other symptoms, how would you describe the pain?

I have no other symptoms at all. Never struggled with fertility etc.

It's just like really bad period cramps - they come in waves like contractions but that's normal for me

I would seek out a doctor that is concerned rather than continue to be dismissed as you have been. You need a gynae referral. There is a cause for this and I also thought endometriosis when I read of your symptoms. I also used to get pains like you describe at the end of my period too and was eventually diagnosed with endometriosis.

Consider keeping a daily pain and symptom diary if you do not already do so.
