Diagnosed incidentally? We want to hear about your experience!

Please share with us!

Were you incidentally diagnosed with endometriosis during a procedure for another condition (e.g. laparoscopy for fibroids, ovarian cysts, etc.)?


  • What type of procedure were you having?

  • Were you surprised to learn you had endo?

  • Were you experiencing symptoms?

  • Anything else to share?

  1. I wasn't diagnosed accidentally, my gynecologist did a laprascopic diagnostic surgery. When I was told that the dr found some endometrial tissue on the outside of my womb, I figured that I would have endometriosis, so I wasn't surprised. I have painful cramps, fatigue, dizziness, brain fog, and nausea. Lemon drops and pedialyte should help with nausea, and Gatorade should help with nausea and dizziness.

    1. Hi @nienna thanks for sharing your experience with this community. I’ve never used gatorade for nausea, but I may give it a go since I am currently suffering from it daily. – Jessie (team member)
