I was diagnosed with endometriosis in June 2014. I had a laparoscopy and initially the pain and symptoms subsided after they removed as much as Endo as they could but about 8 months later the pain returned.
I'm 21 years old and I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years. He's 30 years old. We've been living together for 2 years.
I really really want children. To the point that I've become almost obsessed with it. I've found that doctors won't give any definitive answers and whenever I ask about fertility they just say that they can't be certain how effected I am. I am prone to ovarian cysts and this could also effect my ability to conceive.
I know I'm young, but I have a deep rooted fear that I won't be able to have children if I wait for a few years.
Does anyone else feel like they're almost being forced into facing motherhood earlier than they expected because of endo?
My boyfriend has told me he isn't 100% ready yet, but he's come to realise that it's something that I feel ridiculously strong about. I burst into tears when people ask me about having children because I feel like I shouldn't be facing the possibility of fertility issues a my age.
Is it better to have a child "too early" than never have one at all?
