I was wondering how many of you were told you had endo. and then found out you didn't?i know of 2 woman on this BB who it happened to,and i don't want to be the third,but this is how it is looking for me.They think my right pain,that migrates to the left is endo.Pinching,etc. worse with the P and ovulation,those are my only symptoms.I am due to start hormones this week,i have my hands in the air right now wondering.They gave me Fem-Hrt,because it has less hormones in it than BC pills,so i said ok.My doctor really doesn't want to rush me for a lap before trying this,it will stop ovulation & the P eventually. Any opinions & help are really appreciated

If a womens doctor just says she had endo then it is very possible that it could be a misdiagnosis. My gyno said that the only way to tell for sure if a woman has endo is through laporascopic surgery and that is how mine was found. I believe possibly another way to tell is if the persons has symptoms all month long and not just during her period.

Hi Lou, and thankyou for your reply
If you read this,i am curious,what your symptoms were? and how long you had them until diagnosed? I have all weird symptoms,mostly just pain,with me it seems that hormones also effect my bowels,so i think this is why my dr took this approach first.Thanks K

Krissy, I was and still do get alot of pain with my period. My IBS is worse during too. I would get really tired and get a lot of low back pain. During laporascopic surgery the doctor can remove some of the endo but it will eventually come back. There is no cure but I have heard that birth control pills help a little. The only made me feel sicker. Good-Luck and take care.

Hi again Lou, and thanks for writing again,i am going on hormone pills to try to keep it under control,as i was already told,if i were to have the surgery,it will 90% grow back in 3 months anyways,if i do indeed have it.I will have to see what happens while on the med and keep my fingers crossed. Can you tell me where your pain is?
