Can you still get pregnant with endometriosis???
I was just wondering, there is a good chance I have endometriosis. I have had fibroids in the past. Me and hubby trying to get pregnant, can I still get pregnant with endometriosis??? Anyone dealt with this??? It is SO hard, right now, my cousin, my sister-in-law and two of my friends are all expecting. I'm so depressed over this. Please help!!! =( Me and hubby been married almost 7 years (next month). I'm 26, so I was only 19 when I got married and didn't want kids at first. Hubby is 28.  We've been trying for a month or so. But it's discouraging knowing so many who are pregnant now, and not being one of them. I want to be happy for them, but I find myself jealous.  Isn't that HORRIBLE???!!!  My periods have been regular since I've been off the pill for a few months.  So what's the deal?? Also, another question, any tips to help fertility???  And when I do know when I'm ovulating exactly???
Thanks!!!

Its hard getting pregnant with endo.  Ive been dx; with endo., not fun with the painful cramps etc.,  Plus when you want to get pregnant and its been over 4 years now i still cant get pregnant.  Ive miscarried and tried all the time with my hubby to make another child. Taking my bbt, ovulation calculator, strips etc., medications nothing is working for me either.  Its sad and I know it hurts.  Everyone that I know is getting pregnant.  All you have to do is tell yourself I will be a mommy soon!  By the end of this year nothing happens go do ivf.  Thats what Im going to be doing in europe this christmas.  Hopefully i will be pregnant. I know how everyone feels...its difficult and its painful.. Just believe in yourself and it does take time.  But if you are impatient like me go do IVF.  Hopefully that will make a miracle happen! Ciao

  Your story gave me chills!  I am 27 with endo and have been trying since January as well, with have complications every month with something.  I had missed my period last month and had taken a preg test every week and about 3 weeks ago now I had blood work done which also confirmed not being pregnant.  They were to have started me on Clomid 2 weeks ago, but something in me told me to see the Doctor first due to my pain that I had been having.  I thought it was my endo since I was told I wasn't pregnant.  I went in last Monday for an ultra sound and low and behold there was a yolk sack.  The next day after more blood work it was confirmed that I am pregnant.  THANK GOD!  I was told to come back this week for another ultra sound.  Two days after hearring the news the Doc called again saying my progesterone levels were low.  I was deathly scarred and confused, because they told me everything looked good so far.  He said that miscarriages in the past had shown in women with low progesterone levels and they just wanted to add on some precautions, so he put me on Prometrium to help those levels.  Today I went for my second ultra sound and Thanking the Lord again, I got to see the heart beat.  I'm a firm believer in the power of prayer.  Have faith; I'm not out of the woods yet, but every moment that I have I pray for a healthy pregnancy.  I wish you all the luck as well as anyone else out there with this condition.  It's one that no one will every understand unless they have walked down this path, but one that I would never want anyone to walk down. I can't say it enough Have faith; it's in God's hands, as well as a good Doctor's.

I have endo and I was told my whole life that I would either have problems getting pregnant or staying pregnant.  I wa sonthe pill for 7 tears continuously so I wouldn't ovulate and get that horrible pain.  It's called supression therapy.  So I never got my period.  I stopped the pill and I was pregnant within 3 weeks.  I did have a troublesome pregnancy but it had nothing to do with the endo.
Now, they say if you carry a baby to term the endo probably won't come back.  Well, that's a lie in my case.  It's back bigger and better than before.  I have a blood clotting disorder they discovered while I was pregnant so I can't go back on the pill.  I have a one year old and I am breastfeeding so I have only had one period since Novemeber of 05' but let me tell you I wanted to die when I had it.  The pain was worse than childbirth and I kid you not!
I don't really know what I'm going to do when I stop bf-ing and I have to face ovulation again.  I'm only 33.

if your progesterone is too low you can try clomid you take one tab a day starting the third day of your period until the seventh day  that is what i am taking  my progesterone without it is 7 on my 21st day it is 40 {highest is 50} if you are pregnant you can take progesterone vaginal supp to keep it up you usually have to take them for 12 weeks and then your body will start producing more

I had two surgeries for my endo & my right overy with tube was removed during last surgery. Than I had a polyp removal surgery. My Doc suggested that bcz I have severe level 4 endo, i have to have IVF. I tried 2 cycles of IUI. No luck. Can anybody advise me on this one? Is IVF the only hope?. My uteres & left overy is clear now. No problem with periods. Can I get preg normally without IVF?

I have endo, and have been living with it for a long time. I had surgery and they removed my right ovary and tube. I recently discovered that I have fibroids again. I went to the fertility doctor and he wants to do lap surgery. I really do no want to have to do this all over again. Do anyone have any suggestions? Such as herbs to take or recommend something else besides surgery to help with getting pregnant

I'm 32 yrs old and have been living with Endometriosis since 1998. Fortunetley I had my two children before that. However I'm had Cyst..removed I've had once Ovary and one Fallopian Tube also removed. I've had my nerves on my lower back lazered off to relieve the menstral pains from the Endo... I've had Lupron shots to try to eliminate the pains..and Endro...
It's a horrible disease to live with However If you're trying to have children ..All I can say is just keep trying ....Also remember there's LOTS of Children out there waiting to be adopted. That is something I myself have concidered.

I have severe endo as well. I want to give you hope. My endo was found when I was only 13 and I am 27. I was told my endo was too severe to ever have a child. But, I have a wonderful healthy 6 year old son!! I didn't have to do anything out of the ordinary to get pregnant. I had prayed to God that he would give my husband and I a child, and he did! Just have faith and don't give up. It is possible! And, if you can't conceive naturally by all means listen to the Doctors and try whatever it takes. Plus, I agree with buttercupc32, there are lots of wonderful children that need good homes. Don't give up!

I am 30 yrs old. I had had pains which i thought was from my period or having sex to hard but i found it to be endo when i was 19/20. I found out after i had an eptopic preganancy which took the doctors like a week to find never the less i wanted to know why after that i hadnt gotten pregnant again so my dr decided to go in and poke around to find out why and thats when she told me. She handed me a pamplett and told me to read up on it. Since then i have asked different doctors opinion and all have basically told me that there is nothin they can do but after reading this forum i have hope.

Thanks to you all!

I am 27 and was diagnosed in Nov 2004 with Endo via laparoscopy.  My husband and I tried for 2 years naturally then a fertility specialist did an insemination and 2 invitros and I still could not get pregnant.  That took place over another year.  I was pretty much sure I would not get pregnant, maybe a small possibility with invitro but never naturally.  My husband and I have since divorced but I have been in a relationship for about 3 years now and knowing I could not get pregnant we hadn't been taking precautions for a long time.  Well, my last period I missed but I assumed something was just going on with my endometriosis.  I noticed my stomach was no longer completely flat, but I assumed I had been eating too much so planned to watch how I ate.  We went out of town with his family and while changing I noticed my breasts were a little sore and I said something to him about it.  He said they also look bigger lol.  Well, the thought popped into my head maybe I am pregnant... but after so many years I pushed it aside.  Each day after I kept thinking about it, my stomach hadn't gotten any smaller, and upon return home I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant (now 7 weeks).  Mind you I have not had any treatment whatsoever for my endo other than the one laparoscopy from '04.  I won't say its possible for everyone, all cases are different.  So far for me it has been painful,  I have had cramps everyday since my missed period.  I have also been tired for what seems like atleast 18 hours of the day, I sleep constantly.  But I will consider it worth it even if it lasts 9 months if I can carry it to term.  I say don't give up, but also try not to stress, because maybe once you stop thinking about it it will happen on it's own.

I am 21 years old. I know it may sound young to have Endometriosis but it runs in my family. My mother, Grandmother, & Great Grandmother ALL had it. My mother had painful pd's her whole life, then had a misscarriage in her late 20's which lead to a laparoscopy, and LOADS of endo implants being removed, plus she had to have one whole ovary taken out. My grandmother had a grapefruit sized ovarian cyst, internal and external endometriosis on the uterus and ovaries. She had to get EVERYTHING removed by the time she was 39. I am not a hypochondriac but I have been noticing DISTURBING changes in my own cycle and SEVERE pain........ I wanted to post this and see if it sounds familiar to anyone out there who is dealing with Endometriosis. So....here goes... I get very deep rooted aching pain down around my ovaries up to a full week and sometimes more than that before and during my period. I even get a painful bruised feeling on the outside of my vagina during and before my period. This one is kind of embaressing....but I have A LOT of bathroom drips during my pd. SEVERE gas pains and tons of gas and even diarreah sometimes...As of late, my pd's have become increasingly painful, and unpredictable. They are never on track. I get very light spotting for a day or 2....then it will go away altogether for a few days (2-3) and then it comes back VERY thick, clotted and DARK almost black. The whole process from the spotting to the finish can be 8-10 days. I also get instant stabbing pain on my left side in my pelvic region during certain sexual positions...and after sex sometimes too. I am a skincare specialist, and as of late, I've had Hormonal Zone breakouts (along the cheekbones in a downward diagnal toward the jaw) that I have NEVER had before. I also get EXTREME fatigue during my period to the pt where I feel like I am literally drugged and have no control over how much sleep I need. Often times, I get dull aching pain inside when removing a tampon, and I only use the regular sized ones so I don't think it has to do with the size of the tampon. My pains in my pelvic area are mostly consistant and more of an ache, whereas I get pains in my lower back on the left side that are sharp stabbing and sudden pains at random times. Lastly and most odd to me, sometimes when sitting down, I get a very strange sensation of upward pressure in my pelvic area.....as if something is pushing at my insides..........................I know I am young....but I love children.  I worked in childcare for years and my DREAM is to be a mother. I am wondering if there is ANY way to tell how much time I have to have a baby?????? I know endometriosis can make getting pregnant extremely difficult and sometimes impossible, as it did in the case of my mother after she had me. She was young too... so what about me???? Can anyone help out? Any info/suggestions/good doctors you know of? *Meg

I feel your pain all to well, only I already have 2 girls, ages 8 and 4. I love them with everything in me but I had my first daughter when I was 18. She wasnt planned, her father and I were engaged but split soon after I found out I was Pregnant. About a year after , I found out I that I had endometriosis. I was so young and nieve at the time, I didnt really worry about it, even after they told me I may not have any more children. I was on birth control on and off for a couple of years and then I met my second fiance. we were together for 3 years and never tried for a child, then he cheated on me with my sister and it was over. 10 months later, he decided he wanted me back and I was obviously still just as nieve as I ever was, so I decided to take him back. That lasted all of 2 weeks and it was off again. About 7 weeks later I found out that I was pregnant with my second daughter. Even then I wasnt really comprehending the whole endometriosis thing. My daughter was 1 month old when I finally met the man I now call my husband, the love of my life. We were married 7 months after we met and it has been absolutely perfect except for one thing. Now that I have found that one man I want for the rest of my life, my soulmate and love of my life, I am also finding out that there is very very little chance that I could ever get pregnant. My husband and I have been trying for 4 years now with no results and when I say trying, I mean trying. I recently went to my OBGYN and found out that the meds and the scrapings of the uterus and ovaries were no longer working and that the best thing for me would be to get a historectomy. I was told that I would probably not get pregnant again, I was lucky to have gotten pregnant the second time. This has been so so hard for me. My husband wants a child horribly, and I cant give that to him. I have decided that I will continue on with the treatments that I am already recieving and NOT have the historectomy in hopes that one day luck would fall upon us and God would bless us with a child of our own. My husband absolutely loves my girls as his own, but at the end of the day, reality is reality. I am blessed to have my girls but on the other hand, I want a child so bad with the man that I will love for always, the one that I know will never leave me or cheat on me. I want it most of all to fullfil his dreams and each day it seems to slip further away. I will continue to pray as you should too! We will continue to try until we can no longer. The age differences between my daughters is 4 years, my youngest is 4 now, going on 5, so who knows.?.? It may happen.?.? Ill keep the faith!!!!

We are all in the same boat..........We need to keep the faith and continue to pray......God has perfect timing and I know when the time is right it will happen.....Those of you whom never had a baby like myself know the obstacles with endo and fibroids are like nightmares.......its something we cant control but there is someone who is more powerful.....One of my good friends had Endo and still have it but last year in July was blessed with a little healthy baby boy.....It was a very big surprise........the Dr told her never ever ever would she ever have a baby and it happened to her ............So it can happen just keep the faith!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And pray for one another and try not to be jealous...........it can hinder your blessins.......although hard just keep faithful and if you are not married and asking for a baby maybe God has other plans for you..........Love everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am 25 about to be 26 in feb was just married in october while I was a senior in high school I had the surgery for endomertrosis and I am worried that I will not be able to have a baby. I have been off my pills now for a couple of months had two normal cycles and I have been taking prenatal vitimans for a year, I used an online calculator this last time around and had sex 10 days straight with my husband. I should be starting my period again soon and I am not happy about it, I read about the friends and family members that are all having babies and I agree with you upsets me and I get a little jealous. I know that my cycle is comming cause I have cramps and my breast are swolen, We have only been trying for two months but still frustrating feels like we have been trying for an eternity. Any words of wisdom or support would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Lanee

I am 27 years old I was diagnosed with endometroisis back in 2004.  It has caused me to become pregnant several times and I lost every single one of them.  It is possible for you to get pregnant just it may be hard for you to hold the baby. I am having to have a hysterectomy this year, because of the pain that I go through every month.  Even tho my periods are regular every month they are very painful and I go through alot of mood swings.  So to answer your question yes it is possible to get pregnant, my best advice from one woman to another is to talk to you doctor about it and make sure that you do have endometosis.

Hi Ducky93,

Here is my story.

I was 25 when I was diagnosed with endo back in Sep 2009. I had 2 big cysts (one to each ovary) and got the open surgery done to remove cysts in Jan 2010. I tried to get pregnant on my own for 6months with no luck. Then, I decided to see a fertility specialist in Sep2010. I was on Clomid for 3months and on Letrozole for couple of months. I finally conceived my first baby with Letrozole in March 2011. Now, I am in 9th week of my Pregnancy. So, Please do have hope. You will definitely have your own babies.

Roopa.

So my ex and I were together 3 years and had unprotected sex almost every day. Grant it I was on birthcontrol for about a year and got off. Never once got pregnant or anything. My new boyfriend and I are doing great and he has a beautiful 3 year old now. we've been together for a while now and same has had unprotectded sex and nothing! I had 3 periods this month and the last one was very painful so I went to the ER. They told me they are almost sure its endometriosis. I have to go back to the doctors then go through that surgery. When I found that out I was so depressed cried all day long because it made sence. Ever since I first started my period They've always been bad. My ovaries always hurt and my back hurt so bad I couldn't get out of bed. My one biggest fear is that I can't have children. I've worked with children for so long. They just brighten up my day. I know I'll be a good mom and I think I deserve a chance. It is verp upseting. This really isn't a question just wanted to let poetgirl my story. I wish you the best of luck sweet heart I really do!

So me and my fiance had been ttc for about a yr and nothing. well a yr and a half later I was in the er cuz the right side of my belly hurt. well they sent me home cuz of course it was a cyst. then 2 days later the Dr called me and said by the way we forgot to give u a result. I was like ok what. he said ur pregnant with lvls of 2600 I was like no way. well he was concerned cuz of my pain so I had to go back to er. they did an ultra sound and told me they couldn't find the baby. I was like well maybe I'm not as far along as u guys r thinking. Well the Dr did my labs again and my lvls only went up 1000 when they r suppose to double each day. he said ur for sure having an abnormal pregnacy. sent me home said come back if u camp more or start to spot. the next day I started spotting. so back to er. the Dr came in and said I'm so sorry AMANDA ur having a tubalpregnancie. I was so hurt so angry so confused. Well that was Nov 27th I found out on Dec 2nd they gave me methatrexate which decalcifies the baby. I finally lost the baby January of this yr. I'm not giving up hope cuz my grandma's last words to me before she passed away Dec 23 was Amanda I too I two tubalpregnancies. u will have a healthy baby. just keep trying. so just keep trying and u to will have ur someday baby as I have been told many times.

I also would like to know if there if you were able to have a children before. I have a daughter, 5 years old but now I am afraid she will be an only child. Anyway I am just trying to see how many were able to.  Thank you so much

Hi to all...

Here is my story. I just finished matric in 2001 and got married in 2002. The doctor said to me that I had foreign cells in my uteres. She also told me to start as soon as possible.... or at least try..... so me and my x hubby tried like really tried..... we even praid to the Lord on the 15 October 2004 with a group of friends.... so we went to the doctor about 4 weeks later and my gyno said to me I was 4 weeks pregnant..... I was extatic..... My son was born in June 2005..... In February I found out I was pregnant again and something went wrong...... 6 years now I'm still battling to get pregnant...... I stopped taking birthcontrol about two years back..... I have to go do the laparoscopi but we cant afford it..... any other advice in that situation?

Hi All,
I am also TTC and have been for the past month or so. I'm 2weeks Late for my period. I have had 5 HPT that have all been negative, I've also had a blood test which was also negative to being pregnant. I also suffer from  endometriosis. I'm slightly confused as to what is going on as this is all very new for me, if I don't get my period by the weekend I will be going back to the doctors for a ultrasound to see if a cyst could be the reason for late period. I would like to think I'm pregnant but trying not to allow myself to get my hopes up. I have a few symptoms such as

- late period
- feeling bloated & short of breath at times
- Increase in my appetite
- constantly fatigued
- frequent urination
- build of clear/yellow mucus
- abdominal discomfort
- cramping
- increase in pimples


Has anyone experienced anything such as this?

I was pregnant in '99. I carried to 11 weeks. I was not able to get pregnant again until 2009. I carried until 14 weeks. I was diagnosed with Endo. No pain, no symptoms. But for the longest time I felt something in my lower pelvis area. Now it's gone. Doctors before 2009 never could find it! Stupid Doctors. Now, it is 2012. I have NOT been pregnant at all. It's hopeless. I have totally given up. It is just not going to happen. We tried following my cycle etc, but we know it will never happen. -Lisa

Hello everyone. I am only 19 and we found out just yesterday with the start of my period that I have endometriosis. There is no history of it in my family at all, but we do have a very long line of Ovarian Cysts which I also have. For the past four years I have had a rupture on my right side every four months exactly. So I suppose there is a connection there since many say endo is also connected to ovarian cysts. This month my cycle was very strange, for I have been charting for the last 8 months; it's been consistently getting more off track. Since October I have been taking progesterone pills prescribed by my doctor; you take 1 every night for 10 days, three days after ovulation. This was the fourth month where I was supposed to have another cyst rupture and thanks to the progesterone I didn't. However I think through the elimination of previous problems, the underlying issue was finally able to emerge; endometriosis. I am scheduled hopefully for a surgery in the beginning of March to fix this.
I am not married, I am in college with a full ride scholarship to be a nurse, but my BF and I are very decided in what we want to do with our lives and in the future how we want to be together. We would want nothing more than to raise a family, and very shortly after marriage. IVF is against our faith so we wouldn't be able to do it, but I am not opposed to adoption at all. Even if I have children I would want to adopt. The only issue is... Is there any hope? I've been told since I am still young at 19 the tissues and all will have better chance to heal, but I am just so unsure, and it hurts SO bad. Is it even worth it? Thanks so much all.

My wife and i had stumbled upon this thread last year as she had learned she not only has polycystic ovaries but endometreosis as well. Totally bummed from the news that two gynos told her it was almost impossible for natural conception she decided to seek some solace in any inspirational stories of nothing short of what we were made to believe would be an immaculate conception. After going to a herbologist at the recommendation of a friend (options were all but exhausted and we were trying for a year already) we were basically told to change our diets and all would miraculosly get better (rolls eyes, I was against this meeting from the beginning) Cue healthy eating and 3 months later, my wife became pregnant and June 7th of this year my baby boy was born, absolutely perfect. I'm very sure there aren't many men commenting on these issues but i find myself obligated to do so in the hopes that it may inspire even one person to keep positive and have faith in the impossible, remember that he one in the million they speak of may be right around the corner.

Hi, I have stage 4 endo with adenomyosis very severe pain n bleeding, was told my chances of getting pregnant was close to none even with IVF as my egg quality was also low. But after 3/4 years of trying I got pregnant with clomophine. My pregnancy was a breeze however during regnant I was told that my baby was an sua baby nothing to do with endo, I also went into labour when pregnant at 31 weeks but guess what everything is fine inspite of endo, cyst, adenomyosis, preterm baby and sua...me and my baby are healthy and fine. I had a natural delivery with epidural. All I can say is prayer and have faith that it will happen. God has a plan for everyone in his time. Be positive and stop self pity. I had lost all hopes but my husband was very positive. But I stopped worrying and left it all to god I even stopped gaining sympathy from people and always said that I was fine. And things have changed for the best for me. May b my endo will be back after my pregnancy but I don't care as I have my miracle baby with me and now I can even try contraceptives or hysterectomy or anything else but at least I conceived once,... So don't worry all you people it is possible to get pregnant with endo...

Had 2 laproscopy
3 failed iui cycles
And 9/ 10 cycles of clomophine across 4 years
Was on the queue for IVF
Was told to try egg donor for IVF

Faith n prayer can move mountains :)
