I'll try to give a brief background first: I'm 28 years old. During an ultrasound that was intended for my kidneys, they noticed by chance a mass in my abdomen (my kidneys ended up being fine). From there I had a cat scan, that gave a clearer image of a 6cm cyst on an ovary. My gynecologist is pretty sure it's endometriosis, and scheduled a da Vinci Robotic laparoscopic surgery in about a month, to diagnose it for sure and remove anything she finds.
If it wasn't for that ultrasound, no one would have ever guessed there was anything going on with me. I consider my periods to be fairly normal: My cycles last about 28-30 days, periods about 5 days, 2-3 of those days painful and heavy (but nothing I couldn't manage with Advil or similar things), some fatigue, headaches, etc. But nothing horribly unbearable, as I constantly read is common with endometriosis.
Has anyone been in a similar situation as me? It's very likely that after the surgery they might put me on Lupron, and after that birth control pills. I'm absolutely terrified of Lupron (and not sure if I need bc pills either...). Do I really need it if I've never experienced terrible pain, and fertility is no concern of mine (not having children ever for too many reasons to explain).
Thank you for your time!
