Could I have endometriosis??

Hi .. I'm a 30 year old woman who has a normal 26 day cycle.  Every month I have heavy periods and they are painful. I am bloated most of the time along with having a few sharp pains during intercourse. Are they different stages to having endometriosis and will I have a hard time having a baby in the future? I have been so down about this today:-/
I also made an appointment for my yearly examination for next week.

HI,
Heavy bleeding and pain during menses does require evaluation to find out the cause. However it is difficult to predict whether it is endometriosis. An examination by a gynaecologist and an ultrasound scan will help make the diagnosis.
Hope this helps.
