My journey began 10 years ago when my husband and I started trying for a baby. Like a lot of endo sufferers my diagnosis didn't happen until I came off the pill and the problems began. As a teenager I thought the chronic pain and heavy periods were 'normal'. 8 years on, 3 large endometriomas followed by 3 surgeries later, lots of tests, failed attempts at trying to conceive. I've now discovered I can't have IVF as my endo is too chronic and my surgeries have done irreparable damage to my ovaries. I was only told this yesterday, it feels so unfair and I feel so alone. Just needed to 'get it off my chest' so to speak.
