I have super-painful arousal, whether by myself or with my husband. I went for a diagnostic laparoscopy 10 days ago to check if I have endometriosis and I do not. What do you suppose causes such throbbing, jabbing, aching, pain?

Hi there. Thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. I wish I could offer something useful.Laparoscopic does not always detect endometriosis.It might be interesting to go on the pill and suppress ovulation for a few months to see if this helped. If it did then endometriosis is the diagnosis and you could take it from there. If not then it would be back to the drawing board. Good luck.
