I can tell you that the pain that you are describing is similar to what I experience...I am NOT saying that you have endo though, there are many possibilities. An ultrasound does not diagnose the endo but can help your doctor narrow down the possibilities by telling you whether or not your cysts have "matter" in them. I have major cramping in my uterus, and pains in my ovaries and rectum. Sometimes the pain would severely escalate before a bowel movement. My pain was so severe that I opted for the laparoscopy. They do it as an "exploratory" surgery and then remove any endo that they find while they are in there. I had the surgery and by the next month I was pregnant! I had a beautiful baby boy. I am actually pregnant again, despite the doctors telling me it would never happen once let along twice! Keep your hopes up and don't draw any conclusions until you know for sure.
