Want to have a baby but frightened!!

Hi there, I have recently been diagnosed with endo but must have suffered with it for well over 10 years now. As part of my treatment they have given me the coil (after the surgery to burn it off etc). I now however want to start a famil with my husband (I am 31 and he is 32) btu am a little concerened that the pain will increase the moment the coil has been removed etc. Does anyone have any advice for me please. Thanks in advance. x

Being pregnant is the best thing for your endo and to be honest my pain got worse with the coil. I would go for it, having a child is the most magical thing you'll ever experience. If you want to have a baby then just after having the endo removed is the best time to try. Good luck x


Thanks ever so much. I will try and get the coil removed asap. How did you cope with bringing up a baby and also the pain of Endometriosis though? x
