As far as I can tell endo is a chronic condition that won't get better without treatment, even then it is nigh on impossible to get rid of.
Would I be right in saying this?
The reason I ask is because I have absolutely no faith in my GP or Gyne consultant and I feel that I may have been misdiagnosed.
Here's my story...
My endo symptoms only started during the first period after my 3rd miscarriage. I just put it down to the miscarriage and didn't go to the docs about the symptoms. My next period was horrific, this was put down to a possible uterus infection.
The following period, again, was unbearable. Went back to the doctors to literally be told "It's standard period pain, what do you want me to do about it"
It was only when I went back for the third time that I was then sent to gyne, who diagnosed me with endo by my symptoms only (no lap).
Over the last 6 months I have had strange lumps of tissue passing in my period, I have gone to my gp who only said "Don't worry about it." But the even stranger thing is that in the last 6 months, 3 of my periods have been virtually pain free...
I did not have a D&C after my last miscarriage so my concern is that I haven't miscarried properly and this is what's causing my symptoms.
It would also explain why I haven't been able to fall pregnant in the last 2 years. Although, endo would explain that too.
Sorry for going off on a bit of a tangent, but no one at my gp clinic seems to want to listen and so I'm now stuck with symptoms that don't match my diagnosis.
