I have always suffered with my periods and after 13 years I started doing some research. I went to a different doctor and said I have Endometrosis or Polycystic Ovaries. I had an internal ultra sound and was diagnosed with PO. I didn't have the syndrome, just lumpy ovaries. I then pushed for further tests for endo (a woman knows when her body isn't right) I had a laparoscopy and was diagnosed with Endo despite the consultant insisting that it's rare to have both. You don't need a medical license to know when your body isn't right. Trust your instincts and keep pushing them.
That was 2 and half years ago, now for the last year and half I have severe hip pain on my left side, pain during sex as if there is something in the way up there and severe pain on my right side yesterday to the point where I was in hospital ruling out an appendicitis. I am being referred back to my gynae however I was kinda hoping it was my appendix at least it would be over after they removed it.
I want to start trying for children next year but I am petrified. I am 27 and moving in with my boyfriend. Life is good apart from this constant worry that I won't be able to be a mummy.
I suppose I am just wanting to know if others out there have had children ok with this condition. That its normal for endo to come back. Any advice on the questions that I should be asking my consultant.
This condition is so unknown to most employers and people don't know how to handle it. Christ even I don't! Feeling very low.
Sorry about the long post
