  1. Liver and kidney blood tests, normal
  2. Urine kidney test, small amount of blood in urine
  3. Blood test for ovarian cancer- normal
  4. Ultrasounds for endometriosis, normal
  5. Prolactin blood tests, slightly elevated

Laparoscopy for suspected endometriosis- nothing found during operation.
