Hi there, I'm 19 and am in the midst of getting diagnosed with endometriosis.
Due to pain I am unable to go through with transvaginal ultrasounds or invasive scans, so the next step for me is an MRI with contrast. My Consultant has informed me that regardless of the results of the MRI he would prefer to opt for hormonal treatment, which I have tried previously (with Rigevidon contraceptive pill) to no avail.
I don't like the idea of going through all the suffering I did on the pill again through another round of hormone treatment when it doesn't do anything, and would prefer an invasive/laparoscopic route, but my consultant is reluctant to do so.
Until the results of my MRI come through and I have a follow-up consultation (in 3 months time), I've been told to go back to my GP for contraceptive/hormonal treatment. Any advice on whether it is worth putting myself through all of the mood swings and stress of hormonal treatments?
