My GP recently told me she thinks I have endo, however she doesn't think its worth putting me through the surgery to find out for sure at the moment as she claims I would only be put on birth control if that was the case. So she has just decided to treat the endo without conformation (birth control continuously without 7 day break). She said if this doesn't help symptoms or once I decide to try having children then maybe it would be advised I have the exploratory surgery. This has left me confused as technically I wont get an official diagnosis until I have the surgery . I was wondering has this happened to anyone else or has everyone had the surgery once endo is suspected?
