(The Dr does suspect its only mild endo and if it is, he will laser it out there and then during the laparoscopy)

Ah I thought u were initially saying u only got that one pain. Yeah I do believe that having a female relative with endo does make u more likely.

I don't no how ur Dr can say he suspects mild endo, he has no way of knowing. Also did he say he's doing diathermy or excision of it? Excision is supposed to be better (neither worked for me unfortunately) I think they both have good and bad points but its worth asking why he's chosen the one he has

Sorry, I think sometimes I expect people to read my mind lol!

I don't think he told me whether he was doing a diathermy or excision... however at points he was a little hard to understand!

The ultrasound and internal scan showed up nothing so still gotta wait for the laparoscopy! At least now I know for sure it isn't a cyst or something.

Don't be upset about the scan they hardly ever find any endo in it

Hi Emiloo...I am kind of in a similar boat like yours except that I would not really rate having sex to be painful. It is more like uncomfortable right now and not necessary a pain which stops me from having sex. However, my periods have seemed to be very painful. This last cycle I had to use heating pads on my pelvis apart from taking pain killers. I couldnt get out of bed and to be honest, the pains were not letting me be myself. I was always disappointed, angry and focused on the pain to go away - it is like the pain is in total control of my mood. The pain has seem to gotten worse with time because I dont recall having such painful periods. Also, I noticed that the pelvic pain comes on random days during the month as well but it is tolerable and not debilitating. I have also seemd to notice that my period has become lighter meaning first 2 days are heavy with lot of pain, then I spot for 4-5 more days...it is weird! My gyn suspects endometriosis as well and I am planning to get the diagnostic laprascopy done too but not sure when...

Sorry I didnt mean to hijack your thread. I felt since we had similar problems, it was pointless to start a fresh thread on this. Hope that is alright with you

Please keep us posted on what your doc says and what your laparoscopy turns out to be.

Shudknow you sound very similar to part of mine. With periods I got week long ones and its really heavy to start with and I wud get pain that day a few hours before it came (i wud wake up and no I was going to have period that day)

Another thing thats debated whether its linked or not but I'm convinced it is is I had stomach problems as a child, in and out of hospital, test after test only for nothing to be found, I believe this to he the cells that would later turn into the endo cells maturing like they wud if they were inside the uterus, one of The theories of endo is that the cells that later become the endometrium accidentally implant elsewhere while ur developing in ur like womb and these act like they believe they should. For me this fits my problem perfect and explains why no surgery has worked and why I believe I have adenomyosis as well, which happens the same way. There are other theories too and all are correct (not just one) but each one can help to figure out the best form of treatment (not that the doctors take this to be the case)

itsnowmyturn, that felt like me talking. That happens to me as well and then the pain worsens as my period starts. Sometimes I notice that my pain begins couple of hours before AF starts and it starts getting worse. What I hate about the pain is that it just alters my mood. I am so quiet during the first 2 days of AF and then from day 3, I am a happy person again. There is a day and night difference in my moods during my AF. However I have never heard of AF pattern changing and possibly becoming lighter with endometriosis. I have only heard of heavy flows but not lighter. I wouldnt necessarily say lighter AF for me, it is just that it is different than what I am used to. This is all so confusing No matter how muchI try researching on the internet, tehre are so many mixed opinions or articles about this. I figured it is best to hear about this from people..

My pain makes me feel very sick and I end up in the bathroom trying to figure out whether I need my bowels open or to vomit but iv never actually vomited (prob cos I focus on that I don't want to be sick)

After burning mine off my pain came right on time and 6 months later thy did excision and found it in the same places (another thing that goes with my theory of how mine originated). I don't really mind heavy periods I just don't like the pain lol.
