I have tried to introduce myself here a few times but actually typing my story makes me cry. This place often makes me feel like the lucky one. I am 32, I found out I have endo in June, I am on the waiting list for my first lap to confirm however they saw endo cysts on one ovary when I paid for a private ultra sound.
I was on the depo injection from 17 until 28/9 then came of and started trying to conceive. After coming off depo my period were totally erratic, following no pattern at all. I had a lot of pain in my utero sacral joint (I was never sure if this was from a car accident some years ago). I also didn't conceive after trying for over a year, been trying for 2 years now and haven't conceived. There is no history of endometriosis in my family. I pushed the issue with my gp but got no result. So when I had some money I went private. Now I am waiting for a lap on the nhs.
I guess I am here and want to say hello because I feel my friends cannot relate, my Mum is scared enough and my boyfriend does enough? there doesn't seem to be much in the way of local support groups, I am in the Stoke-on-Trent area, I believe this place is what we have.
I found out months ago but am finding it hard to talk about and so have a lot of bottled up emotions
Peace love and hugs to you all.
