Endometriosis UK


Hi all,

I’m 24 and have been recently diagnosed with Endometriosis. I had an operation back in Novemeber 2017 (due to extreme pain for 4 years and finally being heard) which involved two lesions being completed to remove these lumps (which later confirmed Endometriosis). I had a problem on my right side which meant my fulopin tube was slightly damaged. I am aware about Endometriosis as I have been reading up about it and recently got in touch with someone who also has Endometriosis. I just don’t feel like any of my friends, family members or that my partner really understands the impact this has had on me and I really feel myself getting lost in my own thoughts, my mood is extremely low and feel I’m forcing a fake smile just to see the day through.

I currently have children (twins) but I’m so worried I won’t be able to fall pregnant again and that’s it for me. I worry that I’m coming across ungreaful because I already have two beautiful children.

Any advice would be so much appreciated xx

I was diagnosed in November too, and I'm feeling exactly as you are. It's such an isolating condition - I've found this forum helps, and there's also Endometriosis UK, who run a helpline and physical support groups, that I've also found useful. Re: children - I don't have any nor do I want any, but I did read that many women who have endo do go on to get pregnant. My grandma and my mum both had severe endo, and they both had children (obviously!) I think it's one of those things to take a day at a time, and see how it goes xx
