I wanted to know more about endometriosis
Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I'm not on medication, I was tested for an endometrial pregnancy, not sure if that's the correct term, and it came back negative. Could I still have endometriosis?
Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I'm on the 3 month birth control injection and I'm not allergic to any medicine
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No

Hello! My name is Dr.Ehtisham. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

What symptoms do you have?

Do you have an endometrial biopsy?

Regards

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I have sharp stabbing pains in both my right side and just below my stomach, heavy back pains, nausea, light headedness, mood swings, weakness and I have been having diarrhea. I don't have a biopsy, they only tested me for the pregnancy side of endometriosis not the thing itself.

Do you have any vaginal bleeding ?

Regards

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
No, I had very irregular periods but since going on the birth control injection I haven't had any in just over 4 months or so.

Thanks for the details

You need further evaluation

You should have test for thyroid functions,ESR,CRP and CBC

Endometriosis is the presence of endometrial tissue at abnormal sites

Usually it presents with symptoms which are worse at the time of menstruation

Also an ultrasound of the abdomen/pelvis must be done to look at the cause

Sometime imbalance of female hormones may be responsible for such symptoms

If no reason found then irritable bowel syndrome can be considered as well

Please do let me know if you have any other question
