For about 4 months I have had a dull ache in my ovaries (way worse on the left side) that turns into a sharp pain like someone stabbing you with a knife. I went to the dr and they did an ultrasound to check for ovarian cysts but everything came back clean. my dr said he's not sure but it might be endometriosis and put me on a birth control pill and wants me to try that for 3 months and see if it helps. i have been taking it for about a month but the pain is still there and is now accompanied by lower back pain and once in a while sharp pains down my thighs.. It now hurts to pee but not in uti hurt way just extreme pressure on my ovaries when i pee... any ideas thanks!!Answer Question
First off, your Dr. should NOT have just put you on BC thinking you "may" have endometriosis. WTF?? A simple endometrial biopsy should be done to rule it out. It is done in the Dr.'s office & takes minutes. REALLY find a NEW OBGYN. That is just absurd to just put you on BC. Have a biopsy done & if it is negative for endometriosis then find a Good Urologist. GL!
