Hello Ladies! I wanted to share my story with all of you. I am so excited to have this forum now. I will be here once we TTC our next!

I had awful AF starting at 15. Missed almost a week of school every month from being so sick and painful. AF ended up being very heavy and clotty every month.

I was told for over 2 years from many different DRs that it was in my head or stress. Which I could not believe. They sent me to therapy for months telling me this would help my stress and my pain.

My mom was the only one that believed it was not in my head and something else. We finally saw my miracle DR as I call him, he suggested we do a lap to check for endo.

We did the lap in Sept 2001. He found moderate endo. Right after my lap I went on lupron for one round, had the worst side effects from it didn't do anymore.

After that I went on depo and birth control pill. Miracle DR suggested Acupuncture as he was trained and thoguht it would help. I also started seeing a Chiropractor regularly. I also changed my diet and cut out all diary and most fatty foods for 3 years.

I was on the abvoe B/C until 2003 when I switch to the patch (wish helped even more with AF than the other).

I was on B/C until Oct 2006 when DH and I decided to start TTC our first. We went through many painful AFs again as the endo was starting to rear her head again.

We did many different things I was able to find on endo and TTC. Changing diet, trying herbs, accupunture. None of which worked.

We decided January 2008 that we would move up our wedding so I could get health insurance and we could see an RE. He ran every test you could think of and decided I was Oing but my eggs were not strong enough to implant.

In August we started clomid. I got very bad cysts on clomid (which confirmed bad O without clomid). We took Sept off to rid body of cysts. Oct we did 50 mg of clomid again with no luck. Nov we did clomid and the trigger shot. Still no luck!

I had 4 large cysts in Dec and were unable to do clomid again. I was going on vacation in Jan without DH during O time so we were taking Jan off.

We tried ONCE in Dec (12-22). After being almost 2 weeks late and just telling myself that I was for the first time in my life I was late for AF. I finally tested so I could tell RE what was going on. And to my surprise and shock. Our one night wonder 3 days before O gave us our surprise BFP!!!

Our miracle little girl who we truly were ever wondering if we were going to have will be here in at most 12 weeks!!

I truly hope this story helps you all out. I have read so much on endo and feel awful for anyone that has endo and don't wish it on anyone. Please feel free to PM me if you want to chat or have any questions. I would LOVE to help others get their long awaited BFP!

I think being told we will never have children makes most of us try that much harder to prove those know it alls wrong
