Infertility/Fertility/Pelvic cramps

Question
Hi.

Do you have regular periods with endometriosis?

Also, we are trying to conceive our 2nd child. Just wondering if early pregnancy symptoms can be similar to early menstrual symptoms (period like cramps before period is due)?

Thanks

Answer
Most women with endometriosis have regular periods; it shouldn't affect the regularity of menstrual cycles.  Some women with the disease have spotting for several days to a week prior to their period.

I hope this helps!
