I was diagnosed with minimal Endometriosis in May 2017 and I have continuously been told that it was so minimal it won’t return. Over the last 9 months my symptoms have increasingly gotten worse but they’re acting like it’s just in my head.
Recently I saw an Endoscopy consultant who believes I could actually have Endo in my bowels so I’m having a mini procedure this weekend to find out but more interestingly, I recently had a pelvic scan which showed I have a cyst on my right ovary and my womb is covered in lots of 1cm fibroids, which apparently for a 23-year-old is quite rare.
My GP thinks the cyst and the fibroids could be due to my Endometriosis returning and I have been referred to a different hospital for another opinion.
My question is, can Endometriosis cause fibroids and cysts? Could that be a sign that my Endometriosis is growing back? Has anybody been told anything similar before?
Thanks in advance! 🙂
