  • Its NOT silly. Endometriosis HURTS! depending on the stage.  Google endometriosis symptoms   http://www.endometriosisassn.org/endo.html You will gets lots of information. Tests are simple and dont hurt. Mine was SO bad they did a hystorectomy on me 2 years ago. Now I LOVE life. No pain no problems and NO PMS!!

  • Just tell the Dr that you think it might be endometriosis and go from there.....

  • Actually, you can have it without pain, too. I had stage 3 without cramps. It wasn't until I had surgery for a blood-filled cyst during fertility treatments that it was found.

  • check out wedmd.com & type in endomitriosis. There is a biopsy test available but sometimes if you have enough symptoms then they just treat you like you have it b/c the test can be a little bit painful & invasive.
