How long can a woman have endometriosis before she gets diagnosed?

Is it possible for a woman to have endometriosis for a number of years before having it diagnosed? If so, will that interfer with child birth ( premature birth and miscarriages) and does it cause discharge and excessive clotting while having your cycle?

What are options for treatment of endometriosis other than birth control or surgery?

I have already been on birth control for 9 years, and I can’t afford a laparoscopy because I have crappy insurance. Are there any other treatment methods for endometriosis?

Hydrotherma Ablation – Help for Heavy Bleeding?

I have been doing some research today on Hydrotherma ablation.(after canceling my hysterectomy yesterday….due to complications and being scared to death) It seems that it is only helpful for heavy bleeding. I don’t have heavy bleeding just very painful. I have endo and possibly adenomyosis. The dr also told me that it would not help for the pain. My thought on this is if I don’t have periods anymore then I won’t have nearly the pain anymore…Right?? I am confused as to why it would not help with the pain. If you don’t have a period anymore then I would think that the endo would not act up during your period time??? Am I right about that or would the hormones still cause the endo to act up??

Is there any other treatments that are effective against endo??? I know about many of the medicines and have tried most of them. I was also thinking about an IUD. Has anyone had success with that??

Any other suggestions would be helpful…. Thanks.
