Our expert says:
The first thing that has to be done is that the endometriosis should be confirmed via a laparoscopy. If you do have it, a hysterectomy is not the treatment. There are medications other than the Pill which are very effective. If it is advanced, the endometriosis can be surgically removed. It is not in the uterus and therefore a hysterectomy would not be the treatment of choice.
You might also consider counselling for your rape as psychological factors can cause pelvic pain.
