Laparoscopy diagnosis healthy : confused

Hi I recently had a laparoscopy on monday to identify causes of my pelvic pain...extremely painful periods, pain when having sex, and random 'pulling' pains in my pelvic region. My lap diagnosed a healthy uterus with no sign of endometriosis. Although I feel really grateful that i have a healthy uterus and realize that this is the best outcome as i should be fine conceiving, I also feel quite confused as to why i get this much pain. I had a cyst on my left ovary last year however that healed but the Dr thought I might have endo as the exam was extremely painful. I am also on the brink of fainting when i have a smear test. (lol)

Wondering if anyone else has had this experience and what did they do next? I cant go on living with this pain as its starting to affect my relationship. I am already on the pill (since the age of 16 due to heavy periods) and i have also tried the injection which stops periods, which did help but it didn't resolve the sex pain or random pulling pains.

Thank you :)

I am in exactly the same situation as you, I had a laparoscopy which came back normal back in July. I am waiting for my 3 month check up with gynae post surgery to see what they suggest. I had the coil put in, but I have had pain stil and sex isn't as painfull just find it abit uncomfortable which is affecting our relationship.


Hi bex thanks for your reply. It will be interesting to see what the gynae suggests next. I know all they're going to suggest to me is a mirena but I really don't want one. I have been reading and my symptoms seem similar to adenomyosis.


Ask for a pelvic MRI. Have they checked for Adenomyosis?


They haven't checked for adenomyosis that I know of. Would they have seen any signs of it in the lap? When I have my 6 week check I think I will ask for an MRI. I've read about it and I think it's a definate possibility.
