I found that I was unexpectedly pregnant last week. Husband and I weren’t trying but didn’t use contraception one night so here we are! I’m thrilled with the news as was told that we would struggled to conceive naturally.
I was diagnosed with Endo in 2011 and have had 3 laps to treat 3 endometriomas and remove endometriosis - the last surgery being in spring 2014. I also had 2 courses of Gonapeptyl post-op in 2012 and 2013 to reset everything. Haven’t had any issues since; had my Mirena removed in 2016 as it was causing me long bleeds but declined any other hormonal contraceptives as I wanted to give my body a break. Periods have been light ever since and have had the odd painful period.
I was diagnosed in May with a 2cm endometrioma following some bowel symptoms. I was re-scanned in Sept and the size hadn’t changed. Gynae did an internal exam also but said he couldn’t feel any nodules in my vaginal passage so felt I wasn’t flaring up and was reluctant to remove the endometrioma surgically due to size and the fact I was having barely any symptoms.
I’m currently 5+3 along in my pregnancy but am worried that I am at higher risk of miscarriage due to endometriosis even though everything has settled down and I’m largely symptom free and have been for 4 years.
Looking for some reassurance really! Trying to take things day by day but feels like a lifetime until I’ll get to have a scan to check the baby.
