Trying to get pregnant for 4 years

My heart is literally broken and not sure how much more I can take. I have 2 children 5 and 12 years old. Me and my hubby been trying to conceive for 4 years now. In that time I've had 2 lap and been told by my consultant a hysterectomy would be next step. That was January when I had my last op. Now I'm sat here on a heavy period in agony yet again. My bowels are bleeding to, and I know it the endo as it's been getting worse and worse each month. I'm just completely drained everytime I come on as all we want is another child. Docs can't help at all and we even tried egg sharing for free ivf but I'm not eligible because of endo. I'm losing my friends around me because I'm miserable and they're sick of me being in pain. I'm just stuck now. What do I do? Anyone in same boat? Do u think I could ask my consultant to do another lap? Xx

I am so sorry to hear you are suffering. First off are you with a BSGE centre? I would ask for another lap and then try for a baby they say the chances of having a baby in the 6 months after a lap are greatly improved. I wouldn't get a hysterectomy until you have come to terms with it and the Doc should not push you in that direction if its not what you are ready for.

Wishing you the best of luck.


Thank u very much for your reply it's exactly what I needed to hear before I spoke with my consultant. He wants me to stop trying and I'm just not ready to give up yet. So he's willing to do 1 more op and give me 6 months to try. After that he wants me to stop.
