So for the past couple of years I have had unbearable pain on my left side. Last year I was hospitalized for a ruptured cyst, and these past couple of weeks the cyst came around once again. I went to a new doctor because quite frankly my last gyno did not do a darn thing. This new doctor told me about an exploratory surgery called laproscopy. Two days later I was at the hospital for the procedure. He ended up finding a blood filled cyst, and what you all know as endometriosis. My doctor told me I am very lucky and that my case is not bad at all, however it does make me feel any better. I am the most worried about possible infertility. To me that is the scariest thing in the world. I am really scared and feel like nobody else gets it. My doctor wants to start me on that shot that throws me into menopause. Although I am not exactly ready to have hot flashes at 24, I am willing to do whatever it takes to have a higher possibility at nipping this thing in the bud. Does anything to say about the shot? Negatives or positives? Any feedack about the shot or endometriosis in general would be appreciated.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
