      I would just imply that I’m having more issues with (insert specific symptoms of endo) and see if she suggests it. Tell her you were talking with a friend (who has endo) about the symptoms you’re experiencing and they said it sounds like you have the same symptoms as they do and said maybe you should get checked for endo too and end with, I never thought about it. Hopefully she’ll take the bait and suggest testing for it.
