I've been suffering with severe cramps since the age of 15 (now 20) and have been told by my GP and an endo specialist to take the pill to help my symptoms. I'm worried that by avoiding surgery that it will get worse. The pill helps a lot, and I only get mild, occasional symptoms now. I'm also wanting to have a baby in the future, and am worried that I'll have trouble conceiving. I've also adopted a gluten free diet which seems to be helping, though it's difficult to tell if it's making my suspected endo better because of the pill masking my symptoms. I'm guessing I'll have to have surgery to confirm I have endo? (If I don't, I think I'll go mad because of my pain) I'm worried about the surgery! And if I don't do anything and carry on with the pill that it'll get worse. Help please!
