I have recently been to the doctors for possible endometriosis. I have multiple symptoms but the doc refused to get a laparoscopy done as she stated this was too invasive and would only do this if I was having difficulty conceiving. Fair point I say! As I am not planning to have children until 1-2 years the doctor placed me on the pill to help with the pain. I have personally been against the pill and I am finding it difficult being on it as I would like to be pregnant in 1-2 years. I am feeling really stuck and unsure what to do from now. Are there any natural ways that could help? I find exercising and eating healthy really reduces symptoms, but is the pill good to be on? Will it increase fertility by keeping endo at bay or reduce it as it interferes with natural hormones. Is there another way to be tested for endometriosis that isn't as invasive as a laparoscopy? I've had an ultrasound/internal and a colonoscopy. I feel helpless at the moment and unsure about where to go from here.
