I found out I was pregnant a few weks befor eI was supposed to have surgery to diagnose/remobe endometriosis. my doctor told me she would be shocked if I didn’t have it. She also told me it shouldn’t affect my pregnancy, and will probably only make things better. The only negative is there is a slightly higher chance of ectopic pregnancy I think, they monitored me pretty close in the begining becaus I also have had PID ( although my doctor told me she isn’t convinced it wasn’t just a uterine infection plus endo because I’ve never had an sti) anyways now that I’m not super sick anymor eI feel great, it’s wonderful to not be in near constant pain.

My doctor has said that being pregnant is great for endometriosis. It helps to keep it from growing.

I am 12 weeks & pregnant with endo. Not considered high risk though thankfully! I was in pain every day before pregnancy and it is seriously aaaamazing how it turns off. The only thing I’ve noticed is that with my scar tissue/lesions being on my uterus as it is stretching I’m experiencing extra discomfort but it isn’t like the usual cramping that endo would bring – just a heightened amount of the typical discomfort anyone would experience. My dr said it shouldn’t negatively impact the pregnancy and to just enjoy the break from the pain 🙂

My gyno told me that pregnancy is the best thing for endometriosis (excluding surgery). We are currently TTC and I cannot wait to get a BFP; even a little relief would be wonderful! It shouldn’t be considered high risk, unless there are other factors involved besides endometriosis.

@lolita2011:  I don’t have it, but I know someone who does. She had horrific pain every month and suffered a miscarriage about two or three years ago. She and her DH now have a beautiful and healthy little baby girl (about 5 months). She had a very rough pregnancy with her (not sure if that was because of the Endo or other factors), had to be hospitalized a few times, was put on bedrest, and her daughter was put in NICU after birth. . . but she and her DH feel very very fortunate to have had the outcome they did; healthy mom, healthy dad, healthy baby.
