Hello all! I hope everyone is staying safe during this time! I've been experiencing endometriosis symptoms for about 5 years now and they have steadily gotten worse, especially recently. I have now been experiencing pain with sex for several months. My doctors have been fantastic about managing my symptoms in the past, but as of today, they have scheduled me for my first endometrial laparoscopy to diagnose and remove. This feels like its happening very quickly. I was expecting to have to wait several more years before they'd agree to it. But due to my mothers medical history with severe stage 4 endo, they don't want to wait for it to get very bad before they take action. Im 20 years old, and many doctors wont do this surgery on younger women(they think endo doesnt apply to us). As i mentioned above, I have many of the symptoms and they have gotten pretty severe at this point, but I also have the genetic factor for endo. The surgery is scheduled 3 weeks from now and I would like to know yalls experiences with your first laparoscopy as well as any tips to help with recovery. They also plan on putting in the Skyla IUD while under, so if any of yall have gotten the Skyla, please let me know how your experience was with it! As weird as it might sound, Im somewhat excited (and nervous) to finally hopefully get answers and possible relief .
