asinglerose:
Thanks so much for sharing this! This is really welcome news. I hope it will be available outside of the UK too sooner than later. Iíve always thought I have endometriosis and my doctor thinks so too but doesnít think thereís any point in confirming it in such an invasive way.

Artypants:
This is great news, and I wonder and hope if it was from the research I took part in at Oxford university hospital quite a few years ago that has pioneered the test, that would be amazing!

K jade:
Its great isn't it
A lap is evasive, can damage your ovarian reserve, and set you back either a year on an  nhs waiting list or 4 grand privatly.
Alleluia for this test!

Cloudy:
Definitely a good thing, hopefully it will help reduce the diagnosis time a bit!xxx
