I have a history of endometriosis both ovaries...My Hcg on 18th was 44.4...on 20th my Hcg dropped to 14.0..do i still have chance...

Not good: If the HCG is dropping, you are losing the pregnancy. There is always the possiblility of a lab error, so it can be rechecked. It is very low, and needs to be followed down to zero to make sure it is not an ectopic. ...Read more

I have history of endometriosis w/ full spectrum of ov ca symptoms on daily basis in past 8mos. All they can find is 1.5cm adexal mass, which md doesn't think is cause of my sx. Can 1.5cm cyst be so symptomatic?

I have history of endometriosis w/ full spectrum of ov ca symptoms on daily basis in past 8mos. All they can find is 1.5cm adexal mass, which md doesn't think is cause of my sx. Can 1.5cm cyst be so symptomatic?

Problematic: So yes women with endo have a higher lifetime risk of ovarian cancer. The risk os still small. You should always be on something to suppress the endo unless trying to get pregnant. Endo, scar tissue, or the mass could cause symptoms. But only surgery can tell you what is going on now. And surgery is not enough. Longstanding medical therapy is also needed. ...Read more
