Did anyone find there gyno helpful on the first visit to them, please help!

I went to my gyno for the first time, she took more swabs and examined me all while I was in agony! She then said she can't see anything and would like to see what my MRI on my back shows as it can cause pain.. I find it hard to believe I'm in so much pain and so sore from back pain! I mentioned the doctor thinks I have endo and all she said was well your on the depo and it's to do with periods and refused the idea! Any ideas?

Hi... Im about six weeks away from my laparoscopy for endo. I have had pain for years... I was on the depo for 3 years to control my periods it worked for a while but then i started to get the severe stabbing pains etc and bleeds again..i myself was told it was my periods but i changed doctors and now i am finally on my way to finding out whats going on.. Its took me 5 years of agony to finally get listened to..i totally understand your frustration. Hope this helps :)
