Awaiting diagnosis - please help me!! I'm 23yrs old, I have been suffering with pains for as long as I can remember unless I'm on some sort of birth control. Cerelle really helped me but now me and my partner are trying for a baby - been TTC since August 2015. So far I have had 3 ultrasounds which found nothing but my gynaecologist thinks I do have endometriosis. Now I am awaiting an appointment with gastroenterologist for a colonoscopy as my gynaecologist says he needs me to have this done first as I suffer with constipation alot, bleeding and pain when on my period. He says it's dangerous to do a lap without checking this first. It's really getting me down, I can't do anything whilst I'm on my period I can't even stand up most of the time the pain is just horrific. I feel like I can't keep doing this each month I was just wondering what people's thoughts were about going back onto the pill until I have had the laparoscopy, have any of you been on the pill and still got a diagnosis as I don't want to start taking it again if it's going to delay the process of getting diagnosed? My ideal world would be to go back on the pill until I've had a laparoscopy and it's treated and then start trying again for a baby - is this possible or am I just dreaming?? Please help xxx
