I saw a specialist yesterday and after examination, he said he could feel some scar tissue which he thinks is almost definitely endometriosis. He recommended a lap but said that the decision is obviously mine. I suffer from pain during the first half of my cycle only. I really don't want to have an operation and would rather try hormone medication first? Has anyone one else chosen to do this or is it more commonplace to have a definitive diagnosis from a laparoscopy?
