I Was Diagnosed With Endo Two Years Ago...

I have been fortunate enough to have two beautiful children, both pregancies were horrific though with many complications, and I wasn't diagnosed until 6 years after the birth of my daughter.

It appeared last time I had surgery that my endometriosis was mainly on the outside of my uterus, I had several adhesions and it was mostly apparent on my bowel, hence they explained was the reason that I suffered from a very upset stomach especially around the time of my period. I have avoided going in for surgery for some time now, the last time gave me about 4 months relief but it has started again and in the past 6 month I have suffered from 3 miscarriages. I'm booked in for surgery, but they are leaning towards me having a hysterectomy.

The thought of a life without pain (I don't know about others but I get it throughout my entire cycle, not just when it's "that time of the month") is definately tempting, but the fact that I'm only 29 years old, I'm not sure I can really face that option yet.

Although I'm a fortunate one to have been gifted with two children, the heart break of losing three has been devastating - I feel very deep empathy for the women out there that suffer from endometriosis and are yet to have a child of their own.

I've had similar experiences- 2 children, 2 miscarriages. Had laparoscory last April, and am probably going to end up doing it again in the next few weeks. <br />

I also have pain throughout my cycle. And I agree, the though of living pain free is tempting, but I know I am not done having children. I'm still struggling to get through this too, but we can do it!<br />
