I was diagnosed with endo in 2002. The only way they can know for sure if you have it is to do a laparoscopy. So, you would have to go to your ob/gyn and ask if he thinks you should have one done. Your symptoms don't seem to be that bad yet. I was having extremely heavy and long periods with unbelievable pain, and with diarreah and nausea at the same time.
You're so young still that you have plenty of time to figure out the fertility thing. Usually it's hard to get your insurance to help you pay for those services, depending on where you live. I couldn't get my ins to pay for them when I lived on the west coast, but now that I moved, my insurance does, so I'm seeing a R.E. Also, I'm 35, so my clock is ticking, and I need to have a baby soon,or forget the whole thing.
So, there's so many factors to consider when you talk about endo, and infertility, it is complicated, and different for everyone depending on their specific situation. I have been told to have a hysterectomy due to my endo, but I just didn't listen.
I actually found a herbal remedy for endo online, and it's helping me a lot. Also, and this sounds strange, but physical therapy can help also. Because endo is adhesions that grow in your pelvic cavity, and they're kind of like little bridges of tissue that stick to your uterus, and fallopian tubes and ovaries, and keep things from functioning properly. But they're just soft tissue, that can be stretched and manipulated, and massaged so that they aren't pressing on nerves causing pain.
Going to a P.T. has taught me more than I have learned talking to dozens of doctors. It's amazing. I was in so much pain a few weeks ago, I was considering taking major pain killers to fuction, now I don't need them anymore.
Try doing stretching exercises like laying on your back with your legs flat and your arms over your head, hold it for a couple of minutes. That can release a lot of adhesions that may be causing you problems. And kind of use your hands to massage your abdomen gently, pressing upward. Practice pulling your abdominal muscles in, and holding for about 10 seconds.
Also, you can try taking Fallodox, the herbal supplement I mentioned, it runs about 30 dollars a bottle for a 30 day supply.
Your doctor can give you different drugs to help you with endo, but they will all keep you from becomming pregnant, and the side effects are miserable.
Let me know if you have more questions, unfortunately I know way too much about this stuff!!
ps. I wake up every morning and take my temperature, too. Next step is fertility drugs. can't wait!!
