I was told I might have endometriosis, after having sex one day I had a sharp, I mean extremely sharp pain on my right side. Afterwardsm it went away and I had a dull ache. Could this be the endometriosis?
How your endometriosis was diagnosed was not indicated. Endometriosis is usually detected with an ultrasound but it can be proven only with a laparoscopy with biopsy which is the only secure method.
Pain during the menstruation (dysmenorrhea) is the most common symptom of endometriosis. Pain, during and after sex, is also possible, but not so common as dysmenorrhea.
