Hoping someone responds. just want to share my experience! I have suspected that I had Endometriosis for a long time. I took my periods very young, aged ten and ever since have suffered very badly, i never knew my periods were abnormal. I always had this nagging feeling that I couldn't conceive. Call it womens' intuition if you like! Also, keep in mind that i became sexually active at 18, three years ago and after one too many misses of the pill i stopped taking it altogether to put it to the test and within three years of being sexually active and having constant sex with my boyfriend I have never become pregnant, not once, despite having a regular period.
I had a suspected ovarian cyst last November and had an MRI scan a month ago. I was told today that the chocolate cyst on my right ovary has become 6cm therefore it has gotten smaller but now another chocolate cyst of 4 cm has been found on my left ovary. Also, moderate-severe endometriosis has been detected. I cannot get surgery for them and have to just live with them for now otherwise the likelihood of fertility since I am only 21 and mid degree and thus do not want to conceive right now, would lessen if i got the surgery and did not try straight away. I am getting the coil in and in 6 months time there will be a check up done on me by a top gynocaelogist. He will check to see if the endometriosis has lessened or is progressing at a slower rate and if the cysts have become larger/ I will then depending on what they say decide my future. If the endometriosis has thickened I will need to have my surgery and attempt to conceive straight away, it's kind of a now or never scenario. My mother is devastated as am I. I don't think i will be ready for a baby in the next year but I also don't want to lose the opportunity of ever conceiving. This is all quite a lot to digest. Hoping for any support whatsoever. Many thanks.
