There are two different conditions that can be mixed up easily by people, since the symptoms of the two are so similar.

Pain and irregular menstruation are two typical symptoms of endometriosis. The pain which is secondary dysmenorrhea is a typical symptom, condition worsen with lesion aggravating over time. This type pain often occurs in lower back and lumbosacral area, and even vagina, perineum and legs. However, the pain that caused by adenomyosis is not so much like the endometriosis’s. The pain commonly locates on the abdominal area.
Irregular menses is another symptom that endometriosis has. 15%-30% of patient has heavy menstrual flow, prolonged menstrual periods, and spotting. But the endometriosis won’t bring bleeding between periods.
