    Possible endo? 18 and need advice

    I (18F) got a vaginal exam today after describing severely painful and heavy periods as well as painful sex/penetration (tampons insertion can feel painful and ‘too deep’) and deep dyspareunia as well as a family history of fibroids/cysts/hysterectomies/uterine issues.
    I expressed that the speculum hurt and that I was in pain but she didn’t say anything other than “there will be pressure” and ignored when I was whimpering or gasping in pain.
    I strongly suspect endometriosis and told my doctor but she dismissed me saying you need surgery to diagnose it so ‘let’s not go there’ and put me on the pill, telling me that if I just learn to relax, my pain during sex will go away.
    What do I do? I feel so lost and frustrated.
