Hi Everybody. So I am in the process of getting diagnosed with endometriosis. I'm only 27 years old. I'm in so much discomfort right now. Its freaking me out. Just two weeks ago I had a ruptured ovarian cysts which put me in the ER because of the pain. I just got off my period which is not normal at all. Its extremely light, short, and painful. I'm still in pain and my lower vaginal area is hurting a lot. Its like a throbbing and very uncomfortable type of pain. I can't take birth control because I have migraines and there are risks involved. I have a new ob/gyn who only works at her office once a week so it's sort of hard to get things on the roll. My only other option is doing the laporoscopic surgery but IM VERY VERY SCARED of surgery. It scares me so badly. I don't know what to do. I keep reading horror stories online about endometriosis and how having a hysterectomy did not work, even made things worse, how hormone treatment was a nightmare, etc. Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm scared, in pain, and desperate for any type of feedback. Thanks in advance.
