Hi, I'm hoping to get some advice. I have been all the way through medical advice and after many appointments was told it was 'probably' endometriosis :/ I found this quite upsetting and asked if there is a way they can be sure? They said they would have to do a laparoscopy but wouldn't recommend it if I want children. They recommended I look into contraception to stop symptoms instead. I have recently started getting really painful stabbing pains when I do high levels of exercise. Feels like a cross between period pain, extreme need for a number 2 and being stabbed in the lower abdomen, this is really affecting me and I have put on quite a bit of weight as a result. This leads me to believe the endo is getting worse but when I mention further symptoms to my gp they say to hold off on surgery till it is really necessary. I don't no what to do? I'm really worried about how this will affect me long term if I do not do anything but the doctors have scared me? Any advice?
