I am 20 years old and have had menstrual problems, chronic pelvic pain, bowel and bladder issues since I was 14. I have also developed painful intercourse and occasional bleeding after sex. I have been back and forth from doctors and gynaes throughout this time. In 2013 I had my appendix removed, after a suspected ruptured ovarian cyst. After this my pain continued and in Feb 2014 I had a diagnostic lap for suspected endometriosis.
After the laparoscopy the surgeon came down to discuss his findings. He told me no endo was found, however he removed a large amount of scar tissue from my abdomen. A few months after the lap, I continued to have my symptoms. I have had clear ultrasound scans, internal scans and blood tests. They have referred me back to gynae for future investigation.
Does anyone know if it is possible I do have endometriosis and it was just not present at the last lap? As I know some women need at least three laparoscopies to diagnose endo?
Any advice is much appreciated!
