Having pelvic pain. Report said collapsed follicles. Normal period. Do i need an another ultrasound?

hi, since early childhood i have experience left pelvic pain where i experience pain standing or sitting, sexual intercourse can be painful, pain in left pelvic area during urinating or with wind pains, my periods are regualar and i have not been on the pill for over 2 years . This pain can last all day and be gone the next day but keeps reappearing. i recently underwent a pelvic examination , also a vagina examinatiion and the results was a 20mm thickening of the lining and collapsed follicles, would any of these cause the pelvic pain. i now have been told to have another ultrasound the day after my next period finishes to check the thickness of the lining, what are they looking for or looking at?

Hello.Welcome to healthcare Magic.
Thanks for the query.
Yes the reason for your pelvic pain i suggest is endometrial thickening.
The incidence of pelvic pain by endometriosis is 1:3.
And in such cases sonography and imaging is done to find the stages of thickening and the methodology for treatment adopted,
which may be
Harmonal and drug induced treatment in mild stages of endometriosis .
Surgical method in advanced severe cases of endometriosis.
Endometriosis a gynecological medical condition in which the recurrent pelvic pain is the major symptom and in your case the thickening of endometrium is 20 mm and follicular collapsing .So i would suggest for ultrasound and further treatment shall be done.
Hope good health for you.
Feel free to ask for further advice.
Many Thanks,
Dr Shilpi Gupta
