Hi all, so my dr and gyno are pretty well convinced I have endo. The diagnosis started because I was rushed to hospital with severe abdo pain as well as gastro symptoms, blood tests came back very bad and was rushed for appanedectomy, turns out appendix was fine but I had a lot of retrograde menstruation. Was only a general surgeon though so no further investigations were made at the time. My period pain has been worse ever since that but have passed out from it periodically since a young age. I have been put in different birth control to try and manage symptoms but it has turned me into a fire breathing dragon, I am unsure about the need for surgery if I can just get through with pain killers and I'm told even if I have surgery done I will still need to have birth control to minimise new growths. Just after others experiences with this sort of thing, my partner left me because he figured I won't be able to have children now, is this true?
