Hiya Ellie

I am so sorry to hear of ur loss ^hugme^ ^hugme^

Endo is an individual thing, not all ladies will suffer pain or heavy bleeding some ladies dont have any symptoms at all and its not until u begin ttc that u realise theres a possible problem.

I really hope that u dont have to wait too long for the hsg hunny

If u need to chat u know where to find me sweets

Just a bit of info on my endo symptoms.

I have been ttc for just over 4yrs.  My endo was diagnosed 2yrs ago and it was only after pushing my GP for 2yrs coz I wasn't falling pg (and after several unmonitored cycles of clomid) that I actually got to see a specialist who lasered the endo away during a lap op.  Before having the endo lasered away my periods were never painful, were always light and they only ever lasted 3 days. 

In the weeks leading up to the lap I started to get shooting pains up my rear which made me suspicious of endo.

Since the lap I get period pains for the first 24hrs of bleed, bleed is still very light and now last for 6-7 days.

Hi Ellie
I was really sad to read of what you have been through in thr last few weeks hun, sending you a massive cuddle.
As Emily has said, Endo is an individual thing and some women can have lots of symtoms and some can have none.
My mum's sister didn't know she had endo til she had afibroid removed and she said knowing about it seemed to make things worse, she eventually had it lasered away with no problems after that.
Let us know when you get a date for the HSG
Love

Hi Ellie,

Sorry to hear of your loss. I was diagnosed with endo Sept '03 after 2 yrs of ttc. When the surgeon came to see me after the op she showed me a picture (niiiiice!!!!!) of my endo and explained that it's VERY mild and they can only GUESS that's why I'm not conceiving! So, though I have mild endo, I get terrible, excruciating period pain that renders me useless to do ANYTHING for 2 days!!! I was talking to a woman I work with about this and she told me that (she is 52) she had a hysterectomy last year because she was suffering pains etc and was diagnosed with endo. Until that point she didn't have a clue there was a problem, she never had painful periods, no problem conceiving (she has 2 children)etc... It is such a strange condition it seems to differ from person to person. You can have it severely and be fertile, hardly at all and be infertile as well as another million combinations. I hope you don't get it any worse and be positive, I know it's no consolation but at least you know you can get pregnant. It will happen again soon for you. Good luck.

Love and  ^fairydust^
