ve been experiencing symptoms of endometriosis since I was 16. I am now 32 and things have been up and down for years but they have been overall significantly worse the last year

Lupron can cause many intense side effects, much more than a laparoscopy! If you don’t mind traveling to the Detroit area, Womens Excellence in Endometriosis is a great practice with several locations in metro Detroit. They will take your concerns seriously. I had to go through several others before finding a helpful care team. Best of luck.

That is so frustrating - sorry you are having difficulty trying to get (the gold standard) care. On my fertility app, everyone in the US is getting laps constantly, so I was surprised to read this as it seems they give them without second thought if you want a baby - that is so unfair. I would keep hunting for an endometriosis specialist - your quality of life is important and I hope you can find a Dr who understands that. Unfortunately I’m not familiar with any in your area.
