Struggled to get pregnant but have two children

by Lesley

I was diagnosed with endometriosis about 17 years ago, although after much research by myself I already new I had it. I was told I would find it difficult to get pregnant, which was hard to take at the time.

I was prescribed Danazol but didn't take it as I was told I couldn't get pregnant while having the treatment. It took me another three years after being diagnosed to get pregnant, and in hindsight maybe if I had taken the treatment it may have happened sooner.

I have two children now aged 10 and 13 and it is only recently that the endometriosis has returned. I was actually on the IVF waiting list when I found out I was pregnant with my son, but got pregnant with my daughter almost as soon as we started trying.

I also know somebody who had severe endometriosis and had to have a hysterectomy, but before this she had 3 kids. So there is hope its not a definite "you can't have kids" it may just take a bit longer.

I have been trying for two years, after seven months I went to doctor and she put me on cerophene. Which means that I actually had almost five months treatment for infertility without being diagnosed with endometriosis.

Now, I am on letrozole since five months on the hope that it might reduce endometriosis. I am thinking to go for IVF and your story is really moral booster.

Congratulations on two beautiful kids
