Okay so I'm in a bit of a tricky situation. I am currently 19 and went to the doctors with a burning sensation after sex. After being referred to a gynae and having different scans/tests etc I have been diagnosed with PCOS, with a possibility of having endo - so they obviously want me to have the laroscopy to make sure!
However I have a slight issue, the career path I want to go down doesn't allow for those with endo to go down that route, so I've decided against the operation to find out as this is the most important thing in my life.
My question is, will not having the operation affect my fertility in the future? I want a family in the future more than anything, but I'm worried that not having the operation will negatively effect my fertility if it turns out I do have endometriosis. (The doctor said it could either be 1) nothing 2) endo or 3) an infection).
I am on the pill now and my doctor has recommended I take it back to back for 3 months just in case. I would appreciate ANY advice that anyone can give me as I have been really worried for about a week now since I got told. As obviously it's heartbreaking to think that one day I may not be able to have a family.
