Pregnant with endometriosis

I wonder if this has happened to anyone else. The doctors told me I couldn't get pregnant due to the endo being bad and asked if I wanted fertility treatment, I said no due to not wanting children yet. I'm 24, just started my career after ending uni and in a stable relationship but wouldn't want to bring a child up in it.

However, Iv now found out I am pregnant and I don't have a clue what to do!! My head says no as it's unplanned and I don't feel like I'd be ready at all for it (I was also put on anti-depressants a few weeks ago to cope with work stress) but my heart says give it a chance as it's a kind of miracle to have it! Anyone else been in a similar situation?

  • Hi I think it's a miracle and was meant to be. Iv been told I can't have kids because of my endo and early menopause but I would be over the moon if it happened to me.

    At the end of the day the decision is yours but talk to family and friends before you take make any drastic choices and congratulations 🙂

  • Thank you :) that's lovely!

  • I was told last year I couldn't have children due to endo like you I buried my head in work was also being treated for depression also lost my job and wasn't in a great place at all, then found out I was pregnant thinking uhoh but I am now 33 weeks pregnant and being induced in 4 weeks with my baby girl and honestly was the best decision iv made I now have a fiancé we only been together a year and a half a beautiful home and now a little chubba on her way she's my miricle baby it's been a tough pregnancy and very scary but I get to see my girl very soon and I can't wait ❤️ My whole life has changed because of this unplanned situation but it's changed for the best

  • Thank you for your lovely comment, good luck and congratulations to you too!

  • No prob hope you make the right choice for you though

  • Hi Hun did you have an operation before you got pregnant?

  • Hi sandy 112 yeah I had a laparoscopy Dec 2nd 2015 ended up being a very long op as there was so much endo then was told because of all of this I wasn't able to have kids, so I carried on with my pill for 2 months as instructed and then come off as in my mind there was no point being on it and then may 19th found out I was pregnant :)

  • Mine was the same had the op and the mini pill to control the cysts xx

  • Hi thank u for your reply I am so happy for you I look at this as a miricle but only u can make the right choice for yourself. I really want kids but I can not come off the pill because it's helping me with the pain so they have finally put me on the operation list again so hopefully they are able to remove everything or atleast most of it unlike before which they didn't do anything 😩

  • No one but you knows what is the best thing to do, but take your time to think it through. Talk to family, friends, the father and seek medical opinion. Don't make a hasty decision now that you may deeply regret in the future. In my experience there is never a right time for a baby, never enough money, always too many other commitments but putting it off can be a mistake in some instances. And with support and planning you'll most likely make it work if that's what you choose to do. I wish you all the luck in making your decision.

  • Thank you, I've been in my relationship for about 2 and a half years, we have only an apartment. I'm going to have a think thank you.

  • Hi Amy2103

    Only you know what's right for you however conceiving with endo is harder. I was very very fortunate and have two boys BUT we tried for 6 years for number three and nada.

    Whatever you do make sure it's right for you lovely
