I was diagnosed with endometriosis five years ago. I got married in 2014, tried to get pregnant for one year - nothing, not even once. At that time, I knew that I had something wrong.
Went to the doctor, once he saw my ultrasound he said endometriosis. Because there were two large cysts appearing (5cm & 7cm) he advised me to have surgery to remove the cysts. First I did it in 2015 then for 8 months we were trying for pregnancy. Nothing came up so we tried the IVF. It failed as well. 🙁
We are planning to repeat IVF once we collect the money for it. Back pain, pelvic pain, bad moods - all these became my life, pain killers every day, my period is like dying moments, suffering every day. 🙁
I am always asking myself: will I be a mum one day? What if it did not happen? What if endometriosis destroyed my ovaries?
