I have suspected endometriosis although not diagnosed. My gp is convinced its endo. But the gyne I was referred too, has been useless.I explained the pain I have been experiencing is worse leading up to my period, on my period and during ovulation. I am on the pill. He said it is impossible to have ovulation pain whilst on the pill! But I do! I honestly honestly do! That was it for him I'm obviously a liar making it all up and a completely neurotic woman! But I'm not!
Has this happened to anyone else? Or am I alone? I know it's there, I am even in pain with ovulation right now. It's unmistakable and very painful. But I have already had one Mri and that showed nothing, even though my symptoms all indicate endo. The gyne also said that because none showed up on mri it means even if there it will not be very advanced and therefore impossible to cause pain. But that's not true is it ? From what I have read that's a load of rubbish? Is it?
He obviously doesn't want to do a lap because apparently it's pointless.
I don't want a lap, but I do want to know what's wrong, it's all very demoralizing and I feel I need to know. I'm 24 and in constant pain and that's not normal. He is sending me for another Mri. But I'm sure it's just so he can completely refuse to do a lap altogether. I'm so suspicious and feel like a fool. All I want is to be well and to have fun and be able to keep going with life. But they treat you so badly. This gyne hasn't even bothered to ask me my symptoms, just read letter from my gp. I just wish it was easier to receive treatment and to be treated with curtesy, respect and above all empathy.
Sorry about that.
Also can endo still grow despite being on the pill?
My understanding is that the hormones suppress the growth of the endo
So why would I even need to do another MRI ? Last one was in February? Makes no sense, does it? Thank you again. Xx
