Please could someone share their stories of fertility with any stage of endo and Adenomyosis?

I have quite a few other things going against me for fertility, but my specialist said I have no problems, yet. The 'yet' is bothering me.

im worried if I leave it too late then one of my conditions will make it too hard to conceive and if I get past that I'm worried I won't be able to carry full term or even past 2 months.

Just any stories good or bad I'd appreciate xx

Hello :) sorry to hear your struggles and worries. U wanted stories so i thought I would share mine with u. I've had endo for 9+years and was only diagnosed 3 years ago. I have 2 laps as to which I think the 1st was unsuccessful. I had my 2nd lap and 7 weeks later I fount out I was pregnant and over 7 weeks gone! Obviously I was over the moon as had got it into my head that I was never going to have children even tho my surgeon had told me everthring inside me looked fine bar the endo. So I would say to u don't lose faith and always believe that it will happen for you. It was strange because as soon as I accepted I wasn't going to have kids it kinda just happened for me. But ive been in that mind frame of not having kids and it got me so depressed. Now I am 17 and a half weeks into my pregnancy :) I don't know what else you are Suffereing with but I wish u all the best xx 


Thank you so much for your reply and a huge congratulations! 

I'll try and stay positive, I always love to hear success stories! I hope you have a wonderful time with motherhood xx


I have severe endo, PCOS and a partially septated womb. My surgeon has also discussed the possibility of adenomyosis.

Following a lap I conceived a little boy who I carried to term. Fertility was a massive worry for us and we had accepted we might not have a child so we were delighted! The problem is most of us don't know how it effects our fertility until we start trying. 

Good luck, it can and does happen :)

No problem :) I wanted u to know that I was literally thinking that I wasn't going to be able to have kids.. it just shows how powerful your mind is and that we need to get control over it and think positive and always remember that what u want could just be around the corner. I wish u all the best and let me know how it goes :) take care now and try not to stress and worry.. I no its easier said than done but hey ho lol. Xxx
