Hi, feeling lost and struggling with life now and not knowing where to turn. Many years ago I started to struggle with periods etc and visited the doctor for help, which was a waste of time as all they said was take pain killers!! So I got on with life managing as best I could. Then 4 years ago my husband and I started trying for a family with no luck. So we visited the doctors again and was sent for testing with resulted in finding out I had endometriosis following a laparoscopy. The hospital was able to clear up my right tube but had to leave the left tube as this would risk damaging my bowel. I was then advised that if I did not fall pregnant within the next 6 months my only chance to have a baby would be through Ivf. Then came the news that I no longer qualified for Ivf on the NHS as the age limit in my area was 35 and I was at the time a few weeks away from that. So I had to go private for Ivf which so far I have had 1 failed attempt and am looking at trying again shortly. Life however though has become a daily struggle as since has the laparoscopy the endometriosis has become worse with periods like clockwork but lasting 2 weeks with so many pains etc. No one around me seems to understand and everyone is falling pregnant around me and all I seem to do is cry these days. So Iast week I went to the doctor again to get some help and felt like I was wasting there time again and all they offered me was anti depressants or a number of a councillor if I wanted to talk to someone!!!! Sometimes I feel like what is the point anymore when all I want is a family (baby) and that justs seems impossible with this horrid disease.
