Thank god ive found somewhere I can get proper advice. I have been suffering with really bad pains when I got to the toilet whilst on my period along with painful sex and heavy periods for about 5 years now, along with feeling exhausted alot of the time. I have been phobed of so many time by the GP just wanting to cover up the pain and not get to the bottom of it.
I pushed for some tests so they did an internal examination and everything seemed ok I got referred to a gyno which actually said for me to me wait till i go to try for a baby if i struggle then they will do the op to find out if i have endometriosis which is crazy. Me being 22 I felt very under pressure to agree with her and leave, I have gone back to the GP and asked if I can have the operation to find out as I don't want to leave it years and struggle to have children.
Is there any other way you can find out if you have endometriosis with out having the op? And can I do anything afterwards if I find out I do have endometriosis?
Thank you !
