Patient Comments: Endometriosis - Diagnosis

Describe tests or exams that led to a diagnosis of endometriosis.

Comment from: KEN, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: April 10

My endometriosis was diagnosed through laparoscopic surgery. An X-ray revealed that one of my tubes might be blocked, so my OB / Gyn decided to do a laparoscopy, as I want to have children. This surgery revealed that it was endometriosis.
