I have endo as well.
I had a laparoscopy  (sp?) a few yrs ago.
I am on my 2nd baby within 1 1/2 yrs. I am due Feb. 16th...

The reason we got pregnant so quickly was b/c i didn't want the endo to grow back. I nursed my dd until I got pregnant again.

After this baby my dh and I plan on taking a break...'maybe go for a 3rd in 2 yrs'...but we'll see. I am extremely nervous that it is going to grow back, but i do hear that pregnancy (after pregnancy I should say) will suppress the endo..

Not sure if I helped you at all...but I feel your pain!

Sorry about that...

I guess I just read the 'endo' part and was happy (well not in a sick way) to see that someone else had this as well....
Not too many people on here can relate to mine.

Well good luck to you!

Don't worry, i know, is instinctive, but i find that no many people, actually, no one so far is related to mine either!!!!!even doctors...when u say endometritis....think of endometriosis!!!!
never mind...but thank u so much all the same and i wish u good luck too, but with 2 kids already..u will be absolutely fine!!!!!
