Hi im 27 and have been living with endo for at least 10yrs, with docs fobbing me off saying I 'just have painful periods' and put me on the mini pill.my husband and I have been trying to conceive for the last year and no luck.pain was getting unbearable.finally april this year the doc said to put me out of my misery they'll do a lap.low and behold they found severe endo n adhesions and cysts in/on (not sure) ovaries, so bad the surgeon couldnt do it and so refered me to a specialist, took2months to get appointment to see specialist and now have to wait until aug for next lap. depressed that they found something and even more depressed I have to wait so long.but to top it off I have to put baby planning to 1 side and have monthy injections for minimum of 6months to bring on fake menopause-the idear of this scares the hell out of me! And the cherry on the cake....I asked my gp about this and how to deal wiv the sever pain for the next several weeks and about having kids in the future and he said (unsympatheticly) well id be surprised if u conceived naturally, u'll prob have to have ivf, which if very invasive on life, but hay so's having kids! At that point I wanted to punch him! Had the docs listento me in the 1st place and investigated sooner it might now of been so bad.im so worried i cant have children now.all I know is my tubes r clear n mobile n I have regular periods.Please is there any1 out there with a happy ending because I need some hope to hang on to, I wana feel like im not alone xxxx
