I'm new to this forum and hoping for some advice. I have had symptoms that sound very much like endo since my teenage years (I am 27). Its been largely managed up until now and I always thought that the bloating/pain I experienced was normal. I recently went to my GP with what I can only describe as a really bad flare up of symptoms (pelvic pain, constant bloating and overwhelming fatigue). She specialised in gyne before and advised me that the most likely thing it would be is endometriosis. She advised against laparoscopy for diagnosis as the only recommendation is progesterone birth control and the laparoscopy itself is surgery which may have complications.
I am really unsure whether or not to push for a laparascopy. I want some answers as right now I have a list of symptoms that I can't explain, and I'd like to be able to plan for the future. Has anyone else come up againt this dilemma and how easy is it to push for laparoscopy? Does it give many benefits once diagnosed?
Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks x
