Hi 1solution4Me,

Welcome to the forum.

I'm sorry you are in so much pain. I would really recommend you see the doctor and please don't feel scared or embarrassed to do so - doctors see and hear all sorts every single day as part of their job. And it is better that you get seen and diagnosed if you do have endometriosis and are trying to get pregnant.

Endometriosis UK have some useful information sheets including this one about endometriosis which lists symptoms so you can see if these match up to yours:


This one is also useful for when you see the GP:


You may find it helpful to keep a pain and symptoms diary to take to the GP with you - you can find an example here:


I hope this helps and keep us updated on how you get on.
