My OBGYN would like me to have a laproscopy to look for endometriosis and remove it with lasers if it is there. I am debating whether I should do this or should just take the hormones prescribed for endometriosis without confirming that I have endometriosis.
I am 36 with three children and no plans to try to conceive again. My complaint is pelvic pain for the past three years. I went to the doctor because my periods have become very irregular, and I thought I could be in early menopause because I have many symptoms, except no hot flashes. My hormone levels were all normal.
I am looking for people who have had laproscopy or treatment for endometriosis to ask what its like- how difficult a surgery, how risky, worth it or not- and what the hormones were like if you were prescribed them.
