Hello again been to gyne waiting for decision

Hello again,

I went to see the gyne consultant last Monday and he said he wasn't sure if I have endo as my symptoms don't suggest it, but he gave me three options - leave me as I am, treat me for endo or do a lap.. So I said I wanted the lap to see what is going on inside. He said that he will write to me within 3 weeks if he is going to do it and a date.

However I have been holiday since Wendesday and am now bleeding which isn't normal. It's not a lot but it's now conceded me.

Any advice

Is your gynae an endo specialist?

An MRI can be used to detect endo with the more modern MRI machines, but it seems a lot of gynaes don't know this. Get in touch with his secretary and ask her to ask him if this is a possibility. It is a lot cheaper and safer than a lap and a lap won't always find endo if it is hiding somewhere awkward.
