Hi everyone, new to the group

I have just joined this support group. I have stage 4 endometriosis which was diagnosed in 2010 through a laproscopy. Been trying to conceive for the past 13 years. Currently on naproxen to help manage my endo pains. I have read that endo pains worsen with age. Is that true? I was considering asking to be referred to see a gynecologist, not sure how the wait will be with covid.

I haven't heard this. However, if you haven't been seen since your surgery and are ttc I think it's worth asking for a referral to a specialist centre. You are likely to have a wait but that's common at the moment.

Thanks for the reply. That's what I was thinking, I have felt the pain has got worse even with medication.
