I'm in the same boat. I'm convinced that I have endo but my lap came back as normal. Apparently it's not unusual for endo to be missed as it can be microscopic and difficult

to detect. X

Thats what i was told that it could be so small but cause loads of pain. just frustrating when you see others stories and i just wish i could see a gp or somebody that doesn't think its all in my head or blame my ibs when actually its my endo. x

I know, I feel the same. I hope you get answers soon x

What other tests have you had?

ive had laposcopy, ultra sounds both outside and internal, bloods, mri, all come back negative or whenever i seem to have a big attack of being in pelvic pain and have to go a&e for morphine my bloods come back with my white cells being very high. i have all the symptoms of endo just nobody can actually find it :s

Ask for a cystoscopy. Symptoms of IC are very similar to endo in terms of chronic pelvic pain.

Hormonal problems could be a hormonal imbalance.
