Endometriosis

Postby kencroft81 on Fri Mar 08, 2013 4:24 pm

I have suggestive endometriosis from an ultrasound scan. My symptoms are severe mid cycle pain just after ovulation that spread all across my bikini line area not just on one side. Periods are relatively pain free but I do experience cramp and painful bowel movements during this time. My womb showed multiple diffuse small echogenic foci on the wall. Does this sound like endometriosis? I want to be sure I'm having the laporoscopy with good reason. Thank you

I think that your symptoms do warrant a laparoscopy, although the uterine findings also suggest adenomyosis too, for which there is no test but the treatments are similar.
