Endometriosis ?'s: Endometriosis can be diagnosed by laparoscopic biopsy done at the time of menstruation, but to prevent more adhesions, which can arise from endometriosis, start oral BCP's and take them punctually. If pregnancy is difficult to achieve, ask your GYN about a hysterosalpingogram ( HSG) to make certain your tubes are open.
