In brief: Beware

21y female "had multiple test" & told "endometriosis", for which there are no test & which is a theoretical disorder. Beware of invasive laparoscopic procedures, which can induce intestinal adhesions & IBS symptoms oft characterized as "worse endometriosis".
See Osteopath for evaluation of pelvic girdle disorder & investigate Joint Hypermobility Syndrome before agreeing to invasive surgery.

Pain in mid-pelvis can be referred pain from a pain generator within musculo-skeletal tissues of pelvic girdle. Women told they have "vaginal prolapse, dyspareunia, painful ovarian cysts or endometriosis" should seek Osteopath's second opinion & evaluation for possible pelvic girdle joint/ligament disorder.

Medical literature reports peritoneal adhesions in nearly 100% of subjects after pelvis/abdominal invasive procedures. I have reviewed several cases of "stage four endometriosis" whereat hysterectomy produced a uterus devoid of "endometriosis" pathology. Within practice of medicine Pathologist are always correct.

In brief: Pelvic pain

You may need to have a procedure called Laparoscopy.
This is done under anesthesia. The doctor can look into your belly through your naval and see if there are any adhesions, and to also confirm whether your pain is also related to endometriosis.

Tissue diagnosis is best provided by a pathologist, and the relative absence of tissue biopsies taken at the time of laparoscopic procedures would seem to call the diagnosis of "endometriosis" into question.
