The Beggining

So today was the day that a gynecologist finally listened to me about the pain and the irregular periods. The doctors and her think its Endometriosis but going for another scan in a few weeks to make sure its not something else but she told me I have to make a decision by next time whether I would prefer to try the coil and see if it makes a difference or have surgery and I don't know what would be best.

You are lucky they offer you the choice!usually you need to try with them for years before they even consider laparoscopy. As to what it's best it really depends on what you want to do. If you don't want to have a baby soon there are other treatments you can try before you go for surgery. I am at the same place as you, referred to an endo specialist after years of symptoms and pain and I am going to discuss my options. I want the surgery because I have an endometrioma but also because in my opinion is the best treatment. Just clean me up please and if I am unlucky and it returns so be it. I can't be bothered with pills and potions anymore but every woman is different 😉
