Irregular periods, heavy bleeding, and period pains. Some women think excruciating periods are normal because that’s all they’ve experienced. It is not.
At Insync, we’ve found that menstrual pain tends to be trivialised by doctors, and as such, women find that they have no choice but to normalise these conditions. Proper medical checks can get to the root of the issue and give yourself some much-needed assurance.
It takes an average of 5 years before a woman is properly diagnosed with endometriosis. If your period pains bother you, trust your gut. We are here to investigate and help.

Identify if you have endometriosis.
About 60% of women with painful periods have endometriosis. Unfortunately, this condition often goes undiagnosed or is dismissed.
When you have endometriosis, the lining of the uterus (known as the endometrium) that sheds during your period, flows in a reverse direction and deposits itself on the outside of the uterus, around the ovaries and small crevices of the pelvis like between your rectum and vagina.
During your period, these deposits break down and bleed, irritating the pelvis and causing painful excruciating cramps. Overtime, scarring and inflammation occur, cause pain that may last beyond your menstrual flow.

Who is likely to suffer from endometriosis?
About 60% of women who suffer from severe period pain have endometriosis. The earlier your age at which you start menstruating, the higher your risk of endometriosis as well.
Can I take painkillers to manage period pain?
Yes, painkillers can provide temporary relief. However, if your period pains are persistent and recurrent, we recommend seeing a doctor to address the issue in a more effective manner through treating the root causes of the period pain.
How is endometriosis treated?
Hormone therapy such as Dienogest and the Mirena IUD has been very effective in controlling endometriosis. In fact, surgeries alone without hormone therapy have a 30% risk of recurrence of endometriosis.
How do I know if the endometriosis treatment is effective?
Effective treatment should shrink the endometriosis plugs and reduce inflammation caused by them. The medications used to manage endometriosis should also give you pain relief.
Do I really need an MRI test or key hole surgery to diagnose endometriosis?
If you have symptoms suggestive of endometriosis, it’s not necessary to confirm the diagnosis through MRI or key hole surgery. You can start with a trial of treatment with hormone pills like Dienogest to reduce the disease burden and inflammation.
If the treatment trial works, then it’s very likely that you have endometriosis.
