how long did it take you to get diagnosed with endometriosis, and how did they do it?

      7 years it took to get diagnosed and I was diagnosed via Laparoscopic Surgery (the only current diagnostic method)

      They suspected I had endometriosis last summer of July 2021 when I went to the ER for severe pelvic pain where I could barely move. After I explained the symptoms I have had in the past and what they found on ultrasounds. They referred me to a gynecologist specialist that eventually did my laparoscopic surgery that confirmed the condition

        @SummerGirl wow that sounds like it must have been such a tough thing to endure. So sorry to hear you had to go through that! Was your pain always that bad or did it get worse up until that point?

          @Mufasa94 i already had bad pains in the past but this felt different and more severe. I would get so severe pelvic pain that I would be nauseous and throw up

      It took awhile, I had to convince my doctor that I had it. They did finally do a transvaginal ultrasound.

        @CarissaLynn did it show up pretty well on the ultrasound? When I did an ultrasound for PCOS they didn’t mention anything so I’m wondering it’d it’s something I need to tell them to look for

          @Mufasa94 not really well. The best option is the laparoscopic surgery. I haven't done that yet however but that should show it better
