I'v been suffering from endometriosis symptoms since i was 14 (got my period when i was 12). I'm now 21 and finally have found a doctor whos listening to me and not fobbing me off telling me it's IBS! :/ She suspects endometriosis and/or polycystic ovaries due to a ruptured cyst a few months ago. I have tests in two weeks and she mentioned a possible laparoscopy. The only thing is, she kept saying it's only really worth going for and they only really help you if you're wanting children now. I do want children but the initial plan was to wait a couple of years. Should i have the operation anyway so that i can be officially diagnosed and know whether to bring baby plans forward or not? I have been on the pill since i was 16 but lately am feeling the pain whether im on the pill or not. Or should i just wait until i actually want to plan for a child before i have the operation? confused ;(
