Need help with possible endo

Hi ladies. I went to my dr. last week, and he thinks I may have endo. I have severe cramping the week before and week of period. Also, sex is out of the question during thos 2 weeks, and I sometimes have diarrhea which makes the menustral/pre menstrual cramps even worse. This past month it was just almost unbearable. He had earlier thought I'd had a cyst rupture, but when the pain continued and he found out the other symptoms, he came up with the endo diagnosis and referred me to an OBGYN

Here's the problem, other than the fact I probably have endo. I will probably not be eligible for health insurance until July, so that leaves me at least 3 more months of this until I can afford to have anything done. I cannot pay for a lap or lupron injections. These are just not options right now, but I seriously don't know if I can go through 3 more of these 2 weeks spells. I used to roll my eyes when I woman would take off b/c it was "that time". I'm having to eat humble pie now, because I would stay in bed all day if I could. Any suggestions on how to handle this? My dr. did put me on the pill (my tubes are tied too) and said it should help. Will it? Any info is greatly appreciated.

Re: Need help with possible endo

are you on the pill continuously? i would find a obgyn....make an it over with him / her and let them know about your insurance issue. the ob gyn will know better about how long you can wait to have a lap, etc.
