Im 15 and was diagnosed with endometriosis two years ago through a lap surgery. My endo had progressed to stage 2 with many adhesions. I was put on birth control round the clock (no placebos) after the lap and my pain seemed to go away. If I don't take my birth control at the same time everyday or within 15 mins I get light spotting. Recently I was late by 45 minutes and didn't get any period, I have spent two nights in the hospital because of horrible pain. I thought is was ovarian cysts but the ER drs didnt see anything. I think the endo has come back badly. I'm going to my gyn tomorrow to see whats up and I have a feeling he will want to do a lap again. I geuss my question is will I have to have surgery every two years for the rest of my life or do some people get relief. Im only 15 and I've spent more time 'under the knife' than any adults I know, so I just want to know if this will follow me forever or will relief come.
