How long does it take for endometriosis to come back after laparoscopy?

How long does it take for endometriosis to come back after laparoscopy?

I had a laparoscopy in September and my right ovary especially does not feel right. I told my dr and he will go in again in a few months if the pain does not stop. I call my right ovary my little fin because it is smaller then the left. But the right ovary gets bigger cysts and has more problems. Can anyone help me here? It really sucks dealing with this pain every day.

Weird bleeding

Weird bleeding

I've been having weird bleeding the past month or so. At random times *not on my period* I get a gush of vaginal bleeding out of nowhere. Then it completely disappears (as in no blood or bloody discharge whatsoever after that gush). What could be causing this? I've had polyps before. My dr thinks it's hormonal, but ordered an ultrasound. I don't think it's hormonal. I also know regular ultrasounds don't show polyps. I just want to know what it is! Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

Has anyone been told to skip the placebo pills for their birth control pills as treatment for endometriosis?

Has anyone been told to skip the placebo pills for their birth control pills as treatment for endometriosis?

I guess the reason would be to avoid having their period altogether

When can I resume sex?

Why am I hungry all of the time?

For the past month or so it seems like I am hungry all of the time. No matter what or how much I eat, I feel like I'm starving. I've started doing my fruit and greens smoothies again for breakfast and trying to increase my protein but it doesn't seem to be helping.
