Am I the only one who cant have the surgery? I'm just trying to figure out how people who cant have the surgery treat endo? My doctor put me on birth control and also want me to try LUPRON DEPOT

Your best chances of conception are the first 6 months after surgery. I was unable to concieve prior to my lap (ended up having stage 4), but post lap I conceived no problem. The risk surgery imposes on conception is if you wait too long and scar tissue begins to build up and endo returns requiring additional surgery. I would recommend trying to conceive first but if it’s taking more than 6 months I would push for surgery then try again.

I 'treated' my endo with birth control for 8 years or so which didn't work for me as I was going through my GP and a terrible gyno that thought I was making my pain up. I was lucky to be able to have the surgery (which was worth it in my case) however for me treating endo has been all about finding the right meds after surgery to stop my bleeding. I went to an amazing endocrinologist that has helped me find birth control with ingredients that agree with me and help stop my periods all together which has meant no pain for me. I tried an IUD too which has helped lots of endo sisters but sadly rejected in my body. But if surgery isn't an option for you, finding the correct form of birth control to try and control your pain is your best option.

You need to get a second opinion. That is not a valid excuse for not getting surgery. If you had a blood clotting issue or something where it’s actually dangerous for you to undergo surgery that’s one thing, but the doctor simply thinking it’s unnecessary?? No way. Get a second opinion.

My doctor think I would be able to get pregnant by how my ovaries and other scans look. so she said having surgery isn't somthing I should do right now. Diagnostic lap is expensive and that's no a option for me. my insurance want cover that unless I have tired med first. This is just a general statement most of the people who I talked that got the surgery is still in pain so is that really the best option?

What do you mean by can’t? My doctor won’t give me the surert though he is an Endo specialist. He put me on Visanne and said “no one does diagnostic lap anymore” ya Rigjt !
