Our expert says:
Endometriosis can only really be diagnosed with a laparoscopy as you can’t see it on sonar or x/rays. The doctors usually come to that diagnosis if they can’t find anything else that could be an obvious cause of pain or infertility. You can ask him to put you on a “therapeutic test” of treatment for endometriosis if you can’t afford the laparoscopy but you may need to have it anyway if this does not help. You can bargain with your gyne and the anaesthetist to see if they will reduce the fee for you. You can also ask them if you pay it off over a few months.
