I'm new to this forum, and just looking for some advice. I'm almost 34 and have been diagnosed with endo. My Gyno has advised me and my partner to start trying for a baby asap. This wasn't on the agenda for another few years! But she's also pointed out that fertility decreases as you get older. I don't want to miss my chance so we are going to go ahead
I'm British but have recently moved to France. My Gyno is the only one I can find who speaks English, and I don't know anyone else with endo. From what I've read online a laparoscopy is done first to determine how serious the endo is. My Gyno here says we have to try and conceive for 6 months before I can get this (I've only had an internal ultrasound so far). I'm not sure whether to push and see if I can a laparoscopy, as I'm not clear on how accurate her diagnosis can be from the scan. She said its inside and at the back of my uterus. I'm so worried that it could be severe and I won't know until it's too late- I'd rather know up front so I could have possible treatment straight away. I'm also concerned it might be elsewhere. I just don't want to waste what could potentially be a very precious 6 months trying without knowing the full extent. Has anyone else dealt with anything similar? I'm also wondering whether it's worth getting my eggs frozen in case I need them for any fertility treatment later- does anyone know anything about this?
