I went to the hospital today to see a consultant about my endometrioma cyst. I thought she'd plan a laparoscopy because the cyst is 5x6,5 cm. I was told they want to wait three months to see if the pill makes any difference. So far the pill helped with the pain, it's almost gone, I just feel pressure sometimes and still have painful bowel movements. Was told I was probably more sensitive because I'm thin so I can feel things moving around... The pill is helping, but I also got a period on my second week which was 15th december and I still have it! I hope it goes away. The consultant said I'd get appointment sooner if the period didn't stop or if the pain comes back. But can the pill really shrink a 5x6,5 cm endometrioma to a size that's considered small (around 3cm or less)? I am also worried about having endo tissue elsewhere in my abdomen but the dr said they wouldn't want to operate just to have a look. My diagnosis is clear without a lap because of the endometrioma, that's obvious so I don't need a lap to find out IF I have endo. I am worried that endo will spread if they just leave it there. Has anyone here been on hormonal treatment only, no lap?
