    ureaplasma urealyticum is an STD that can exists in the reproductive organs and urinary tract. This condition can bring sufferers different symptoms based on the location of the infection. 
    If you have this infection locates in urinary tract, you would experience symptoms like frequent urination, urgent urination, sting from the urinary tract and so on. 
    Once the UU stays in reproductive organs, people might affect diseases like pelvic inflammatory disease, tubal conditions such as tubal blockage and so on. 
    As for the endometriosis, it is possible. This condition can bring endometritis and later endometriosis to women. Therefore it possible for the UU brings endometriosis to women.
    Since you also mentioned the very unbearable pain when you are on menses, it might be a possible sign of endometriosis. And here are some typical symptoms of endometriosis. I hope this can help you. 
    Secondary dysmenorrhea is a typical symptom, condition worsen with lesion aggravating over time. The pain often occurs in lower back and lumbosacral area, and even vagina, perineum and legs, 1-2 days before menstruation. The most desperate pain is usually on the first day of the period and abates during the following days, the pain stops after the menstruation. The amount of pain corelate poorly with the extent of lesion., with some women having little pain despite having severe adhesion, while other women may have great pain even though they have only a few small areas of endometriosis. A few women may have a constant pain in lower abdomen, worsen with the menstrual cycle.
    Irregular menstruation    
    15%-30% of patients have heavy menstrual flow, prolonged menstrual periods, and spotting. Irregular menstruation may relate to ovarian lesion anovulation, luteal phase deficiency, adenomyosis, and fibroids.
    But in your case, I still recommend you to take test to make sure. If you do affect the endometriosis, timely and proper treatment can be received. Appropriate herbal formulas like Fuyan pill or surgery can treat endometriosis symptoms as well, some even found able to clear up the lesion.
