Lyndsey’s Story (Endometriosis)

yellow-ribbonHello Ladies!!!

I was diagnosed with endometriosis when I was sixteen. Wow, sixteen years ago!!! It has been quite a battle. Multiple surgeries, many medications, a lot of suffering. Thankfully, I’ve had my family and friends’ support over the years and have found a man that loves me no matter what.

I’ve been on Depo since 2012, when I had to have somewhat of an emergency surgery because I was hemorrhaging. I’ve been very happy with the results.

I am now at a time in my life where I want to try to have a family. I know everyone is different, and I was told after surgery that my uterus looks good. I would love to get pregnant without any help. I’m just curious as to what everyone else’s experiences have been. I’ve had so many OBGYNS in the past sixteen years. They all say something different. I’m just looking for some support.

  1. I have endometriosis, and pcos, I also had a ovary and tube removed due to a tumor and was told I by all accounts would need IVF. August 2014 I was feeling sick to the stomach and had a lot of pain and I thought oh here we go another large cyst and surgery. My husband jokingly said maybe your pregnant go get a test so I did figuring like all the other times I thought I might be only to get a negative result it would be the same but it wasn’t I was pregnant and now I have a beautiful healthy baby boy. I believe there’s no reason to not try if that is where you are in life. I at the Time was not trying because I resigned myself to what Dr’s told me and I couldn’t afford IVF. Your body has a way of doing amazing things you never thought possible.

  2. Hi! My name is Shelby and I haven’t been on here in so long but hugs to you, first off!

    I was diagnosed two years ago, 3 months after my surgery I found out I was pregnant. Prior to being diagnosed we never used any type of pretection or pill for over two years, I truly believe once you have the surgery and you don’t stress about it, it will happen!

    I’m 11 months post post tim and I had a plum size cyst removed in August and I’m officially back to square one and almost certain it has returned. It’s nice to have answers but it’s exhausting, most people just don’t understand!

    Fingers crossed for you!
