Hi everyone, I've just joined up hearing about the forum from 'Lorraine' this morning! I've been suffering from symptoms for many years, as well as other gynaecological issues, but was only diagnosed August 2015 through my first lap. I've battled with doctors to help me discover the root of my problems since I was 17, but had issues as they believed me 'too young' to look into further. I am now 23 years old.
My consultants have made it apparent to me that because of my endo I should consider starting a family sooner rather than later, which I have now begun to pursue, but it seems like a never ending battle with the pain as it makes sex difficult and stressful and the constant pain makes me feel drained and I find myself napping every other day. Pain relief is also pretty useless... I seem to be cuddling up to a hot water bottle more than my fiancée!
Has anybody else had the same issues? I'm concerned that this could hurt my chances of conceiving and if anyone has gone through anything similar it would be great to hear from people going through the same issues as me.
