I am 25 and currently undergoing further consultations which look like they are going to result in my second laparoscopy in 2 years.
I have suffered with symptoms of endometriosis since I was 13 and my first round of surgery and various medications seem to have had little lasting effect.
My biggest concern (aside from the excruciating pain and the raging hormones) is of course children.
My partner and I have been together a long time and have a very stable relationship. We have discussed children at length and know it is something we both want. However, we are not yet married and would ideally like that to be the case before we start a family (we can't afford a wedding at the moment!).
Basically, I would like to hear other people's experiences with having children. My consultant has made it clear that the earlier you try the better. I would never forgive myself if I didnt give myself the best chance possible of having a family.
Any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated.
