Hey everyone! I've been through the ringer with this endo (as I'm sure most of you have). After a lap at 21, I was informally diagnosed with adenomyosis. Now, four pain-having years later, multiple doctors who thought I was just being a pain in the ass, and two gynaecologists, I have an informal diagnosis of endometriosis. My last gyno decided to try Visanne, which worked well but I am still not pain free, and stated that since the medication was working it was pretty definitive proof. My question is, what do I do now? I think my first step is to have another lap, and get a definite diagnosis. After that, I'm not sure. Ive already changed my diet (years ago, actually) and exercise is something I kind of stay away from because of the pain it causes (even with the new medication). With all of the things I have read regarding infertility in women with endo, coupled with this gut feeling I've for most of my adult life that I'm already infertile, I have an idea in my head that I would like to have my ovaries removed, but at 25 and with no kids, I think it's unlikely I'll find a doctor who agrees to that. So I'm reaching out to you ladies, who possibly have a bit more experience and are slightly wiser than I am. What do you think?
