Hi everyone, I'm 22 and was diagnosed with endo last month through surgery.
I'm not pain free which I cannot believe, my legs have stopped seizing up, back ache gone, stabbing pains in my lower stomach just gone! I'm bloated & tired and recovering from an infection, but that is nothing compared to the daily chronic agony of endo!
I'm now wondering about pregnancy. I don't want to have a baby now, I don't want to have a baby until I'm in my 30's really!! But with endo, I realise that is probably not possible.
My doctor sort of recommended I try for a baby now as it stops endo growth...which is really not a good idea considering I'm still at university.
Realistically, what do you all think? Does my endo diagnosis mean I have to start trying sooner? Maybe in 5 years instead of 10? I've been with my boyfriend for 5 years, we are very much in this together.
But the whole thing is very confusing and overwhelming, I haven't had a chance to really think about it clearly until now.
What do you ladies think, realistically, are my options while having endometriosis?
