I’m not currently TTC, but as someone with endometriosis, I tend to worry from time to time that one day, when SO and I are ready for children, I’ll have issues getting pregnant. Can I hear some success stories of you ladies with endo who were able to get pregnant?

My sister awas diagnosed with endo and she became pregnant after 3 cycles total. Her second cycle resulted in an ectopic pregnancy that was terminated and then her next cycle after that was successful.
I had an exclusionary diagnosis, but I don’t think it was accurate, I’m convinced there’s something else going on with me, I’m still TTC, will be exploring fertility options in about 3-4 more months.

Sorry. No happy story here. I had the same fears because of my Endo. I’m on cycle 14 TTC, with 2 laps and a 6 month course of medically induced menopause via Zoladex in between cycles 12 and 13 TTC. It’s been almost 2 years since we started trying. Honestly, if you’re concerned and having kids is a priority to you, I wouldn’t wait too long. Some women with Endo get pregnant quickly, while others have problems conceiving. Unfortunately you never know which you’ll be in until you try.

Yeah, that’s my main worry. I’m 26 (turning 27 this year), not engaged yet. We will more than likely be getting engaged within the next few months. So, as far as the timeline of getting engaged-getting married-getting a house – we’d like to accomplish all of those things before having kids. I was diagnosed with endo in 2011 via diagnostic lap, and the doctor had told me it was “mild”. All of the endo was removed, and the doctor seems to think that I’ll have no problem getting pregnant one day. I was on birth control from age 15 up until September of 2014, where I decided to go off of it because of side effects I got tired of dealing with. I had taken a “break” from BC in 2012 for about 6 months, and was totally fine as far as pain, bleeding, etc. I went back on BC when I began dating my current SO, and off of it 9/2014.
My aunt has endo and was able to have three children with no issues (she didn’t find out she had it until after the birth of her first child). My cousin also has it. She’s 33 and hasn’t attempted to have kids yet, so I don’t know how it’ll affect her ability to get pregnant.
I’m sorry you’re having a difficult time, and I hope it all works out for you!
