Hi all, I've been doing some research on the internet over the last couple of days (researching hysterectomy/oophorectemy as I'm likely to be getting one in the next year or so) and I hit on a list of endometriosis symptoms. It was like a damn checklist, I have abdominal pain, lower back pain, mild nausea, frequent UTIs, painful/heavy periods with short interval times (before I went on HRT for gender dysphoria)... I've even got female relatives who've had it. I've made an appointment to see my GP later this week but in the meantime, how did other people find out about having endometriosis? I'm super wary about self-diagnosis but the pain/symptoms match eerily.
Just for clarity I'm a transgender guy, born female still with all female organs. I've been on testosterone for over a year, and while the pain/symptoms started well before that they do seem to have gotten worse since then. I've had an ultrasound to look for ovarian cysts but they couldn't find anything.
