"Period Pain Is Normal"
“Somedays is created by and made for anyone who has ever felt dismissed, alone, or hopeless in their experience with period pain. It's a safe space for people to explore their relationship to pain, find community, and welcome pleasure into a part of their life that may have been previously untouched by it.”

Endometriosis is a condition that can have a range of symptoms, varying in their severity and frequency. Some of the most common symptoms include:
Painful menstrual cramps: Some individuals with endometriosis experience severe cramping during their menstrual cycle. The pain is most commonly felt in the lower abdomen, lower back, and pelvic region, and can last for several days.
Pain during sex: Endometriosis can cause pain during or after sexual intercourse. This can be due to the location of endometriosis, which can cause discomfort or pain when pressure is applied, or due to the inflammation and scarring caused by the condition, which can make certain movements painful.
Chronic pelvic pain: Endometriosis can cause chronic pain in the pelvic region, which may be constant or intermittent. This pain can be severe and debilitating, and can impact an individual's quality of life.
Fatigue: Many individuals with endometriosis experience fatigue or exhaustion, which can be caused by the pain and discomfort associated with the condition, as well as by hormonal changes and sleep disturbances.
Infertility: Endometriosis can cause scarring and adhesions in the pelvic region, which can impact fertility. Some individuals with endometriosis may have difficulty conceiving or may require fertility treatments to become pregnant.
Painful bowel movements: Endometriosis can grow on the bowel or rectum, causing pain during bowel movements. This pain can be accompanied by bloating, constipation, or diarrhea.
Bloating (Endo Belly): Endo belly is a term used to describe the bloating that can occur in individuals with endometriosis. This bloating can be caused by a number of factors, including inflammation, hormonal changes, and digestive issues. Endo belly can be uncomfortable and can make it difficult to fit into clothing or perform daily activities.
It's important to note that not all individuals with endometriosis will experience these symptoms, and that the severity of symptoms can vary widely from person to person. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, or are concerned about your reproductive health, it's important to speak with a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment.
