Hi, if the OB says you have endometriosis, please ask for an ultrasound, this is best done on the 2nd or 3rd day of your menses. I was diagnosed with endometriosis, i had ultrasound on the prescribed day and the OB saw a big 4.5 x 4.5 x 5 cm cyst on my left ovary. It was actually causing me pain on my feet and back but concentrated with my leftmost part of the body, i was taking pain relievers before thinking it was just muscle pain, until it was confirmed. So i had it removed like 6 weeks ago through laparoscopy, now i felt better no more pain radiating from my pelvis. So, dont be afraid and get a transvaginal ultrasound from your OBgyne.
