Hi Everyone,

I just got diagnosed with endometriosis and had a laproscopic surgery done. I am still sore. It was not a very good expierence for me. I live in a forgein country and the hospital i went barely anyone spoke english and i could hardly ask any questions. On top of that me and my husband have been trying to get pregnant but now with this new diagnosis and am very worried that won't be possible. I just having a lot of mixed emotions about it all. Its a little overwelhming anyways thats my story so far.

I'm sorry for what you are going through. I am a 10 year Army Veteran and it's not easy bouncing from post to post, which means physician to physician. I was diagnosed with endometriosis when I was 25, I am now 30 and still have the disease. Luckily I have found a GYN to perform a hysterectomy on me, and I thank God EVERYDAY for my one and only son. Don't let it beat you, there are other ways to become a mother just remember DNA doesn't make a parent! Good luck! :)

I just hope you can get over this problems getting your ways, with your planning to have afamily of your own.

I don't know what that is but I hope you can have kids. Family is important. I hope you can have yours. There is always other ways to bring a child into your home too like adoption. But I hope that you can give birth to your own child.

I have that. I was diagnosed about 10 years ago when I also found out that I have fibroid tumors. I had a myomectomy in 1998 and then when more tumors grew, I had this procedure called immobilization to starve the tumors and cause them to die and then shrink. Fun, huh? I was told that I probably won't be able to have kids because now my uterus is scarred.
