My belly button hurts so much and the surrounding area feels

Customer Question

My belly button hurts so much and the surrounding area feels sore every time I get my periods. The pain subsides but remains for two weeks each cycle. This started when I went off the implant
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: My periods occur regularly every 30-32 days. I can't bend over or lie on my tummy or even wear anything that would rest on it for the period
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I've had two live births through a cs but nothing else

It sounds most likely that you have trouble with symptoms due to ENDOMETRIOSIS --- this acts up when you have a menstrual cycle..

It makes sense that a progesterone type implant birth control would suppress your symptoms ...

I recommend that you Follow up with your gynecologist for further evaluation and treatment
