I'm new here and I'm looking for some advice on how long it took for doctors (and family members) to start taking you seriously when you suspected that you had endometriosis? How long did it take to be diagnosed? I'm really lost right now in a sea of symptoms (which I strongly expect to be endometriosis) and nobody seems to really care. My family are fed up hearing me talk about it and I feel like the NHS want to believe its anything serious. The fact of the matter is, something is seriously wrong and nobody seems to be listening. Can anyone shed any light on their experiences with endo' diagnosis?
