    Endometriosis found during colonoscopy

    I went for a colonoscopy a few months back because of blood and mucus in my stool. A previous barium enema had diagnosed dicerticulitis and irritable bowel. The colonoscopy revealed pelvic fixation, which my GP said is endometriosis. I had my physical yesterday, and during the pelvic exam (not PAP) I was in major pain. The Dr. sorta moved his hand around, and it was very sore in one area. He said that this really appears as endo because of the pain, and because he said my uterus was very stiff. He said most women's uterus' are quite flexible. When I got home I was in severe pain, almost like menstrual cramps with lower back ache. I have always had cramps with my period, but I thought this is just normal. The Dr. suggested I remain on birth control pills as they sorta help endo. I am 26 years old, and want to have babies. Is there anything I should know about endo, or should I have a test done. Please help and advise.
