In brief: There are ways
Our research that will be published soon shows two very accurate predictions of endometriosis.
First, if you had bad periods (worse than peers or missed school )as a teenager, you have nearly 100% chance of endo at surgery. Second, testing for ovarian reserve with Clomid (clomiphene) challenge test: if abnormal 90% chance of endometriosis at surgery. Need good excisional surgery not band aid.

In brief: Laparoscopy
Although a ca 125 blood test if elevated can be suggestive of endometriosis, only surgery can diagnosis and confirm it.
Usually that involves a laparoscopy, or same day minimally invasive procedure.
