Scar Tissue?

Hi all, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries over 18 months ago and started getting severe pelvic pain in January 2015. I have been told after a smear test that I also have a tilted womb. After many doctors telling me they think I had endometrosis, I finally got a lap done January this year. My results of my lap were that I don't have endometriosis but I had scar tissue connecting my abdomen and colon. They told me everywhere else looks fine and even my cysts had gone (which means the pill must be working). I have never had surgery prior to this operation. I am left very confused because I have recently started to get pains again. Since my operation, I have been to visit my GP who told me he thinks I still have endometrosis because scar tissue has to develop from somewhere. Just wish I would stop being messed about and doctors would give me definitive answers. Has anyone had a similar problem? Can a tilted womb cause general pelvic pain? Can scar tissue develop from nothing?

Hi Elle, you can be born with a tilted womb but it can also be caused by endo. Did you have your lap with a general gynaecologist?

Yes I had my lap with a consultant gynaecologist. He told me there was no signs of endometrosis, just scar tissue but I have never had surgery prior to this operation. I am just worried because I am 25 and not in a time of my life to try for a baby. I am terrified I wont be able to have children and feel so rushed to settle down.

Hi Elle have a look on the BSGE website for a specialist centre near you and ask GP for referral to them. General gynaecologists are notorious for either missing endo or not recognising all presentations of it. Good luck.

Hi, did you have your laparoscopy with a general gyne, or at a bsge centre, if with gyne they do tend to miss endo,  I would suggest you get. A refferal to a Specialist at a bsge centre,  a tilted womb is common with endo, and yes the adhesions have to have cone from something either an accident, previous op or endo, good luck x
