I've been lurking here, because my aunt dealt with terrible endo her entire life.

Her pain started at 12 when she got AF. She'd miss a week of school once a month. Doctors could do nothing.

In fact, it wasn't until her and her bf had been TTC for over 7 years that she decided to get checked out (I won't cite the number of confirmed miscarriages, they make even me cry) and they told her not to bother. Her abdomen was full of endo, her tubes were partly blocked by it..it was so visible you could see it with an external ultrasound there just wasn't a way for her to carry a baby with out killing herself and it. They wanted her to have a hysterectomy, it was that bad. She's a little stubborn and it took her another year to listen and stop trying. She stopped, started being healthier and lost 20 pounds and missed her January period.

Little Miss Tori Anne Rose is now going on 6 (cries) and although my aunt did have a significant amount of pain, and was not able to have a vaginal delivery (too much stress on Tori) she carried her no problem.




I wish I had the photos of my aunt's "innards" after her c-section, I've seen them, I was shocked. I honestly don't know how she was able to do it, she was filled with endo tissue, it was lumped on the outside of her uterus the size of my fist! They were able to remove most of it right there while she was on the table, and her periods have eased up slightly. Still heavy, but less pain. She should hit menopause soon and they hope that will ease the pain even more.

Just figured you all could use another success story!

That's great to hear! Not about the severity of her endo, obviously, but that she was able to have a healthy and beautiful little girl!

We need all the positive stories we can get Thanks for sharing x
