I saw my doctor yesterday afternoon, and he is intrigued by my ultrasound result. It is only 3 years since I had a laparoscopy, and the doc thinks it is not much time for endometriosis to develop in and so thinks that it might have been missed when the infertility investigations were done. On the other hand, as I was complaining of very heavy periods rather than pain, he thinks that this may not be an endometriomal cyst as diagnosed – either that or I have quite a high pain threshold! He seemed quietly bemused and has booked me in to see a gynaecologist at the hospital on 23 January. Curiously, the diagnosis of endometrioma on the ovary is exactly what I thought I might have 5 years ago. . .
