Endo is one of those things that treats us all different...

1) How old were you when AF showed the first time?

2) How old were you when it started being painful?

3) Is your flow heavy, light, medium?

4) How many days does it usually last?

5) How long are your cycles?

4) How many days does it usually last?3 days now

1) How old were you when AF showed the first time? 12.

2) How old were you when it started being painful? My first period. I was in so much pain I didn't move allll night. I just sat there scared.

3) Is your flow heavy, light, medium? IDK really. Having my first AF in many months. This time around it goes from heavy to medium to light and back. So irritating.

4) How many days does it usually last? Usually from past experience from 5-7 days.

5) How long are your cycles? Used to be clockwork 30 days. Hopefully my body goes back to that routine, I liked knowing that when I woke up on day 30 my period would be there and if it wasn't, I was pregnant (which is exactly what happened with Eden.)

1) How old were you when AF showed the first time? I think I was 12. Also in the 7th grade.

2) How old were you when it started being painful? A few years later, and it got very sporadic. I'd have it 2 weeks after it just left and then sometimes it'd be a week late. I went on BCP at 17 and was on it for 9 years, where the pain was a little better.

3) Is your flow heavy, light, medium?Usually heavy the first day then medium then light..

4) How many days does it usually last? 4 or 5 days

5) How long are your cycles?Around 32 days, although now on BCP shorter yet.
