Hello everyone. My story is a bit unusual as I didn't know I had Endo until I was about 37 when I spent a night in a & e with severe abdominal pain. I am lucky enough to live near the manchester royal infirmary which has specialist endometriosis consultants so I was quickly diagnosed and booked in for a laparoscopy. The operation itself, though long and complicated (took 8 hours) went well and I recovered well and was back in work after four weeks.
Prior to the op we had been trying for a baby and I never in a million years thought we wouldn't succeed. It was just something I knew would happen to me at some point in my life.
I had a test this week, however, that shows I have no eggs left at all. Zero. No chance of conceiving even through Ivf. We are very, very sad about this. it feels so final, so brutal. I am reeling from. The fact that I have a condition that is so cruel it has left me infertile.
