I had my first appointment with the consultant today and have come away feeling unsure about what to do next.
The consultant agreed to doing a laparoscopy and has referred me but he said it could take 2-3 months. In the mean time he suggested trying the depo injection, the implant or the mini pill to try and control the pain as the combined pill isn't working.
Although he agreed to investigate as I wanted, I felt like he was rushing the appointment and he said a couple of things I know aren't true - he said because of my age (21) and the fact I've had a clear scan there's a 5-10% chance it's endo, but I know that's rubbish as Endometriosis UK says the opposite. Also he said sometimes periods are painful when nothing is wrong.. Fair enough but not every single day.
I'd really appreciate your opinions on the three treatment options (for pain and IBS symptoms specifically) please only positive stories as I'm already freaked out and confused about making the decision. Also, do you think it's worth changing doctor? He was pleasant enough and did understand when I expressed my fertility concerns but I wasn't completely happy.
