What do I do!!

So .... no matter what I do lately I can't lose weight! In the 2.5 years I've been with my partner I've put 5 stone on, and it's getting me really down, I was diagnosed with endometriosis last year, I am in constant pain, one tube is completely blocked. And the other I only have a tiny possibility of falling preg with, but up till now I've refused hormone treatment as I didn't want to take away the smallest chance of me falling preg, I managed it once before so I was hoping for a second miracle, after reading through a few forums and web pages I've seen that majority of people with it struggle with there weight, and one of the only treatments to keep the symptoms at bay are hormone treatments, but after thinking about it and thinking back to when I lost 6 stone 5 years ago I started losing weight when I fell preg (lost 2 stone) then had implant put in and lost another 4 stone, I had implant took out just before I met Danny, and started putting weight on...... So now I don't know weather I should have it put back in, lose the chance to naturally conceive for a while and get rid of the weight, but then am I just going to pile it all back on assoon as I come of it? Argh!!!! I know being slim will give me a better chance of falling preg but I just keep thinking well I was large when I fell preg last time anyway!! I just don't know what to do!

I think you would be best to talk to your doctor, most of the posts on here talk about gaining weight when they have implants and not when they come off of them. If you are struggling to lose weight with no hormones in your system then I think you need to find out what the cause is. Personally I have lost weight in the past two years whilst suffering from endo but I did gain weight on the pill many years ago. I have just started with zoladex and waiting to see if the weight piles on as the side effects suggest. I hope you find out what is causing your weight gain soon. Just remember that being slim won't necessarily solve all your problems good luck x
