I've had symptoms for the past 10 years and decided I couldn't wait any longer for a referral and I paid to go private gynaecologist and she wasn't very thorough in her questions to me and came out with after examining me internally that she doesn't think it's endo and my choices are a to try mirena coil or to have a lap but she advised highly against lap as she said risks are high and small chance of endo. I really don't know where to go from here as the pain I'm getting is unbearable! She said the coil will help with periods but not pain with sex! But said the coil is difficult to to fit if you haven't had children. I don't really want the coil as I intend having children in the next few years so I'm back to square one again. Any advise or have you experienced similar?
