I'm 22 now and have been having various problems with periods and stomach pains since I was 15. I have been told by a few doctors that it could be Endometriosis but they have been very reluctant to diagnose and have instead put me on contraceptives to ease the symptoms. I finally had an ultrasound scan last month and they found a large cyst on my ovary. When I spoke to my GP she said if it is endometriosis then they can only tell by giving me a laparoscopy and told me this isn't a good idea and to just wait and see what happens. I just wondered if anybody has any advice for pushing for a diagnosis or even just some information? Thank you.
