8 years ago I had my last child. My doctor then said that she would see me within 10 years for a hystorectomy for endometirosis. I figured she was right why not she had been my doctor for years who knew me better than the woman that had seen the inside of me. I have had pelvic pain for at least that long or longer. I always assumed it was that reason for the pain. I had seen multiple doctors for the same reason. I had a lap 2 years ago and the doctor, at the time found some scar tissue and my ovary attached to my abdominal wall. He did not notice any endo. I still suffered from the pain, however, not as bad as before. I switched doctors and was asking for a hysterectomy. she did not perform one but did try other options. She said that she doubted that it was endo since the previous doctor had not cited any. she put me on Depo provera and although it did stop the pain, I was unable to continue it. I bled the entire time on it. Since stopping, I have not bled any. that was 7 months ago. we discussed the pain issue and this past tuesday, she performed another lap. This time it was just a diagnostic one. she told my family that she found nothing; not even scar tissue. I have had 3 c sections back to back. I expected her to find something to explain my pain. I am scheduled to see her in 2 weeks for a follow up and now that I am certain that it is not endo, what is wrong with me. I have always assumed that was why i was hurting and there really wasnt anything I could do about it. Has anyone else had any issues like this. I have research PCOS and fibromyalgia. i just want a name so I know what it is.

Ouch. how frustrating. If it were me, I would get a referral to a highly recommended specialist who deals with these sorts of problems. My experience with the medical field has left me with a not so favorable opinion. Keep going until you get answers. Good Luck....
I would also look into accupucture and other natural healing remedies to try and ease your pain.
