I mean is it problematic to bleed during an laparoscopy for endometriosis

Brief Answer:
Laparoscopy can be done

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Spotting on birth control pills can be due to endometriosis or hormonal changes.
You should stop the pills when spotting.
It is not contraindicated to have laparoscopy for endometriosis when you are having bleeding or spotting,as the bleeding is from the uterine lining and not from the intra abdominal endometriotic implants.
I suggest you to go for surgery as advised.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
