What are some of the issues faced with endometriosis and menopause?

How do you get your OB/Gyn and Gp to look for possible interactions with endometriosis and other organs in the body not associated with the female anatomy (ex. kidneys, spine, bladder, etc.)?

Hi there , Great question & one we hear very often in our community. Unfortunately, when it comes to our health, we have to be our best advocate & push for care. Far too often our pain or concerns are dismissed or not taken seriously. If your doctor is not actively listening & providing you with proper care by exploring your voiced concerns, I would encourage you to find another doctor.
Personally, I have come a long way with my Ob/Gyn. Once I began going to my appointments prepared, but outlining my questions, concerns, symptoms, pain, etc. that I was experiencing (I had written notes) at each visit, she became very proactive & willing to address/explore my concerns (i.e. blood tests, ultrasounds, etc) for other parts not not associated with the female anatomy.
