HI
GREETINGS
From the history it looks like you are having endometriosis and your pain is due to it especially during periods.
Is there and cysts in ovary.?
The pain depends on the severity of endometriosis.
If you are not trying for pregnancy ,can be on low dose oc pills which will reduce the pain. If there are ovarian cysts and planning for pregnancy ,laparoscopic removal can be done .

It depends on YOUR decision about pregnancy.If you are not planning for pregnancy symptoms can be reduced by taking oral contraceptive pills.
