Glimpse of hope

Me and my partner are trying for a baby and have been since September last year, after being told I have stage 4 endo, with my left ovary crushed with the endometriosis they have said I only have a 25-30% chance of conceiving. Anybody else is this situation or have been and did get pregnant??? I'm just getting so down thinking this will never happen for me 😞

I know it's hard but try not to stress about it. The less stressed and trying for it you both are, I think it lowers the chances. Just relax and enjoy it instead of doing it for the sake of having a baby! X

I too have stage 4 endo and was told that I would need assistance getting pregnant. I didn't want to put myself through ivf and as soon as I made that decision.... preggers! It's almost like as soon as I stopped obsessing about it, it just happened! It's true what they say about stress affecting your body and ability to get pregnant. Easier said than done I know, but try to just go with the flow x

Oh really? Was you trying for a long time then? Suppose even healthy women without endometriosis do struggle sometimes and it's just a waiting game. I've been to my GP and they just put me on folic acid as they knew I was trying because my specialist had already written to them telling them they was encouraging me to try now as it could be my best age with being stage 4 x

Me again.... just wanted to say in the months prior to getting pregnant, my gp put me on a combo of tranexamic acid and mefenamic acid for me endo. I can't help but think this also had a positive influence x

I tried on and off for years, but tried properly for over 3 years I suppose. I was diagnosed with endo in 2011 but knew for years something was wrong. Was pregnant by October 2013 at the age of 37! There's always hope but try to be cool about it x

Hi I have stage 4 endo which was covering my both my ovaries and was told at my 6 week review that if I wasn't pregnant by the January we would going for ivf. But in the December 2014 I found I was pregnant and now have a lively nearly 2 year old little girl. So don't give hope it can happen.

That's good to hear I think the problem with me is being so impatient it's so silly x

Have you considered doing anything like acupuncture to help you relax and get into the best possible position for pregnancy? Sometimes it's easier not to stress if you feel like you're doing something more about it xx

No I haven't tried that, I usually book In For full body massage when I'm feeling that stressed I feel better for about a day! Haha xx
