hi, i have always had painful periods and mid cycle pain but after numerous trips to the doctors in my teens (in which no real tests were done i might add) i was told that it was just something i had to deal with which would probably go away, so as you can imagine when i fell pregnant at 28 i was excitedly anticipating these lighter and less painful periods, and guess what?? they were worse so i went back to my new doctor who suggested a multitude of tests along with an ultra sound scan.
however whilst waiting for this scan i got the worst pain i have had to date and went to the hospital as i really wasn't sure what was wrong so they did an ultra sound scan there and then and said i had a 4cm endometrioma and that the ovary it's attached to is in the douglas pouch (??? no explanation for this so i was left to research it myself) i was then taken back to the ward to be told i had endometriosis and i was discharged and that my only options are the pill or the depo injection and i should make an appointment with my doctor.
i am really at a loss as to what to do now. i really don't want either the pill or the depo as have had both before and they did not agree with me AT ALL. plus i'm not sure if i should now be asking to see a specialist as when i've googled endometrioma it says they mean i will probably have growths elsewhere
so really after all that waffle i'm just asking for maybe some advice and where i should start and even what i can do to get myself more clued up as at the moment i just feel confused and lost
thank you in advance
