Endometriosis pill
Please advise me if there is a suspicion of Endometrosis will going on the pill and thus having a period every 3 months solve the problem. What are the side effects of this? Will this be a problem in the future for me to conceive as I am 28 years old?

You should confirm the diagnosis of endometriosis if there is a suspicion. It would not be good practice to start treating something if you do not know whetehr it is there or not. If, for example, you had endometriosis, another form of treatment might be necessary. The Pill is not always useful in this case.
