Cramps in lower abdomen, pain worse on breast feeding, smoking. Family history of endometriosis. Treatment?

i have been having alot of cramping in my lower abdomin for about 3 weeks now. it feels like amixture of constipation/diareah/menstral cramping. the first date of my last period was 06-22-2012 which i should add was my first period i have had since i delivered my daughter via c-section on 03-29-2012. this pain seems to get worse when i breast feed or smoke a cigarette. it makes me feel very faint and it is hard to talk when it comes. i also feel as if i should run to the bathroom. yet when i get there sometimes nothing happens. and when i am able to use the restroom it does not help with the pain. i no that they say endometriosis does not run in families but alot of people in my family have this and i am worried something is wrong.

Hello ma'am and welcome.

The sensation and pain you are experiencing could just be your body trying to return to its pre-partum state. This is normal and happens over a period of a few months.

Smoking does not help the healing process at all and I would strongly advise against it. I would either way recommend a visit to your doctor for a physical examination, to make sure all is well.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
