  • I am not familiar with it but if he does not have patience for his patients maybe you can find another one who is more caring.

  • I would never go back to him again, how dare he talk like that to you. You go get a second opinion. This does cause alot of pain and if not taken care of it can get out of hand.

  • idk that he isn't a good doctor with patience for his patients anymore than i don't know you might be a hypochondriac.
    perhaps go to another doctor..a gynecologist, would be my suggestion..not just a doctor at a walkin clinic.

  • He cannot diagnosis endo without more testing. I had to have a laproscopic exploratory surgery , very easy to recover from, to determine I had diffuse endometriosus where it was causing organs in my abdomen to fuse together and causing horrible pain. I also bled heavily and at odd times. I did a year of hormone shots to try and get it under control with pain medication and in the end I choose and my insurance and Gyn agreed it was time for a hysterectomy and clean out all endo in my abdomen. since that day I have been blissfully pain free. But they would not all agree to it will i was in my early 30's and had had 9 pregnancies, 3 live births. so they felt secure when i said I was done having children and would have no regrets having a hysterectomy. after years of excruciating pain and severe bleeding its been the blessing of my life.

  • Clearly he doesn't think you have endometriosis. If you're not seeing a gynecologist then you should be. Why did you make the leap from a little pelvic pain to endometriosis?
