what to do if have endometriosis?

I plan to get a hysteroscopy and lap with ovarian drilling this fall as soon as DH gets insurance and we can start treatments back. What are my opitions if I have Endometriosis during the hysteroscopy/lap?

I have dysmennorhea, irregular cycles, clots over quarter size, pain in back/pelvis during AF which last up to 3 months at time without treatment and irregular cycles since I was 14. Just wondering what my opitions are so I can be informed. :?:

Hi Hun...I too have endometriosis. Gynaecologists can temp clear the scarring from endometriosis which helps the chances to conceive :xxx3:

They can also give you drugs to put you in artificial menopause to relive symptoms and to stop the endo from coming back for a while. Sometimes they just use the pill, depending how severe your endo is.

Sometimes relatively small amounts of endo can cause large amounts of pain and problems, so there might not be as much damage to your fertility as you fear. If you are diagnosed you can get the right treatment - best of luck RM x

hey, i was diagnosed with endo when i was 15, and like everyone else said even though there is no cure they can make is manageable. Dont dismiss being able to have babies i have had severe endo and i conceived naturally after being told it would never happen. dont give up hope any thing is possible, i cant have any more now but i know she is miracle baby just dont be hard on yourself which is easier said than done but im a true believer in if its ment to be then it will. :) chin up x
