Endometriosis...How many woman have it and have children?
At the age of 19 I found I had endometriosis stage 3 going into a 4.
A few weeks after my surgery I was still in a lot of pain, and went back to the doctor who told me that it would be best for me to have a hysterectomy, I told her no. I want to at least try to have a child one day, she then went on to say the chances of me having a child were very slim to none and that by the time I turn 25 I will need to go ahead then with the surgery.
Now I went on to have a child at the age of 21/22 (my daughters and I birthdays are 8 days apart -lol) and I am now 25.
Now my question is to other mothers who have endometriosis, how hard was it for you to have a child? Did you have more than one? Ect..?
I am still in pain but the birth-control helps a lot, but I wonder if I should try to hold out for more children later on or not.
Now for some of you who wonder about this, the only way to know for sure if you have it is by surgery.
