Hey guys...i was diagnosed with endo last year.My doctor put me on contraceptive pills for 3 months as a first treatment for endo but it didnt help much so i will be going for lap next month. But the situation now is that my period was due on the 22nd of march'18 but i havent had them yet. I have been having serve period cramps and a lighly brownish discharge just as if the period is about to start but it hasnt. What are the chances that i have conceived? Anybody who has been through this? Please share your experiences. Thanks in advance.

I would take a test to rule out being pregnant, however i have had reduced periods with bad endo which are very brownish like you described. That could be it for your period xx buy a cheap test from the £1 Section if supermarket and just see what there results are xx you can still get pregnant with endo x

I took the pill from october till january...yes i guess i will go for the bhcg test next week, its just that a negative result leads to heartache so just thought of asking everyone in case someone has similar symptoms!

Thank you :)

I always seem to get either dark brown discharge/blood before after and inbetween periods.

I was told it was old blood?

Also my cycles are all over the place. Sometimes I can go months without one, or I can be constantly on.

It may still be the side effects from the pill if you are normally regular? X

This brown discharge was my first real endo sign!! I had it continuous for over a year alongside my periods... Think it's a pretty common symptom n not very pleasant... My first scan showed what the doc referred to as chocolate cysts... I would take a test if nothing else it will stop u worrying "what if"... N stress could b stopping ur period regardless of anything else.

Is this your first lap?? Just curious as I have been told u can't get confirmation of endo without a lap.wondering how u were told u had it without a lap

I just did my urine test at home and it came out negative. Is it too early?
