Hi all. I'm new to this. Never written on a forum before but reading this site which I only found last week has given me hope and smiles aswell as tears. Where do I start I'm 29 and want children but can't do so outside of wedlock planning to get married in August if everything goes to plan. I was diagnosed in 2007 with a cyst and a tiny amount of endo cyst was burst endo left to do its thing as doc said it was tiny. Over past two years my periods have been very painful - fainting whilst out shopping - hot flushes, stabbing and boom black out. It happened every month mostly until recently I started eating healthy lots of fruit and veg. I'm tiny only weight 7 and a half stones. Anyway..so doc ref me to gyne and last week I had a lap doc found cyst, ovarie stuck so he released, no endo on tubes, some on back of womb, tiny about on bowels none on bladder. He snipped away significant amount but not all. He said I am stage 3 - severe. I am scared yes - he has offered me zoladex X1 injection every 3 months till I decide to start a family then I come off injections we do another lap he trims off anything left and we try for a baby. All seems simple but it's the side effects that worry me - I don't want to regret having them nor do I want my endo to get worse spread and stop me having children. Can anyone offer me advice? My periods are normal, on time, I suffer first two days or just before and then fine. I have two weeks to decide...
