Like you, my VV symptoms are "female" related. I have attacks when I go to the gynecologist for annual exams. Mostly, when my cervix is touched. My heart goes out to you, you seem to really suffer with these. It seems you are truly having VV attacks and not just suffering from endemetriosis. Endo is painful, and that is triggering the VV attacks, it seems to me. I'm no doctor, but I grew up with a dad as a doc, and know a bit about both subjects as I suffer from both. Apparently, the vagal nerve runs near the cervical area, which may account for why you have the attacks with the cramping of yoru period. When the vagal nerve is stimulated, the attacks happen.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
