I was diagnosed with grade 3-4 endo in march after 2 years of failed conception. always had painful periods but never thought there was anything sinister until I realised I was struggling to conceive. I went to my GP and lied about my symptoms and exaggerated it all to get as referral to gyno. anyway good job I did as it would have only gotten worse. my consultant came to be straight from my lap to advise that the only way he could make me pain free would be by a hysterectomy - I was 26 at the time with no children - clearly this wasn't an option. my relationship was on uneven ground so I decided against IVF for the time being. I went through 6 months of prostrap injections. at no point did my periods stop I just had symptoms of the menopause (horrendous sweats, depression, fatigue, anxiety and weight gain) my relationship broke down not long into treatment. I today met with my consultant again - he reverted back to the hysterectomy option or IVF. None of this are fitting for this time how do I deal with my condition now - I feel completely out of options my endo is going to gradually get worse and I really hope to have a family one day.
