Am I insane for having a fear of having a daughter? I know endo runs in families && my mom has it...So...with having a son I have a relief knowing I can't pass it to him. but we are ttc again && Im afraid that I will pass it to my daughter if I were to have one.

Anyone else have that fear?

I worry about it constantly. It's not crazy at all. I worry about passing all my medical problems down but most of the rest of them are manageable and get better the older I get. I even considered in the past having a hysterectomy and just adopting that way I would be sure not to pass it on. I just have to keep telling myself there is not guarantee that we will pass it on.

It was too late for me - I found out I had endo AFTER I had my DD. If I were to have another baby, I'd want a boy so I wouldn't feel double guilt, but in the end there's a chance that my DD now or my DD in the future wouldn't even have endo.

I worry about it too! I mean don't get me wrong I would love a DD but knowing that I couldn't pass on Endo to a DS would make me feel at ease

I actually do NOT worry about it. I am the only one in my family that has endo. NO ONE else has it. The only thing my mom had was a tumor on her uterus. They found the tumor once she was pregnant with me cause they thought she was having twins. The tumor grow as fast as I grew. Once she gave birth to me, her body kept hemorrhaging due to her body naturally trying to flush out the tumor. She ended up with an emergency hysterectomy just hours after delivery (she was 24 years old- same age as me) BUT that has not been passed down to me ( i dont think) So like I said, although Endo is heriditary, i am the first to have it in my entire family line. So I guess I don't want to start "the curse" by passing it down...
