Hi everyone, just a quick note to introduce myself really; :)

A friend who is also a member gave me details of the site and from what I can tell so far, they were so right - this is one of the nicest and supportive fertility sites i've visited.  I have been diagnosed with endometriosis for over 5 years now and although i've had 5 laparoscopic excisions and countless rounds of hormone treatment, it keeps coming back. I'm now at Stage 4 and my consultant has basically told me to try and get pregnant or have a hysterectomy (all a lot to take in when you're only 24!). :eek:

At the moment we have been told to try naturally for another 4 months and then we can commence some fertility treatment; we go and see him at the end of August to work out a plan of action but I cant help feeling like I have a big clock counting down on my forehead!  I take it that kind of feeling is normal?? ???

lots of love n hugs ^hugme^ ^reiki^

^hello^
& Welcome to FF Stacey P ^hugme^

Endo Is a horrid condition and I'm sorry to read yours is at stage 4 :(
All I can really suggest is get reading and posting with the ladies on the endo threads,
get as much diet/lifestyle and vitamins into you both as you can,
to maximise those chances and the treatment if thats what is needed.

I am going to leave you some direct links to boards here on FF - that you may or may not have found,
I would like to encourage you to post in these areas to build friendships and support from members who really do have an understanding of your situation, You may find there is an active running thread for ladies having treatment at the same clinic as you check both the ICSI & IVF boards as we don't have separate clinic threads for each

Hi Stacey P and welcome to FF  :)

I'm sorry to hear that you have been suffering with Endo, as Dizzi says it is a horrid condition.  If you visit the endometriosis board you will find lots of help and support from other ladies who have been through similar things and understand the way you are feeling.

Wishing you lots of luck  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^
