Hello everyone, I'm Kerry and my husband, John and i were married in 2001.
We took 4 1/2 years to conceive our first son, Ross, and it was heartbreaking TTC over that long time. I had various tests done and they were normal. In 2005 i was put on Clomid and unknown to us i had undiagnosed endometriosis. I had an ovarian cyst on my right ovary which had grown to 15cm in length! I had an emergency laparotomy and the cyst was removed alongwith my right ovary and tube. I was found to have stage 4 endometriosis was lots of deposits all over my abdomen including my bladder and bowel.
We were given a less than 1% chance of conceiving naturally!
I was given 6 months of Zoladex injections after the op to put my body into a temporary menopause! This was to help remove some of the deposits and reduce a cyst i had on my remaining ovary. 3 months after i finished the treatment my periods returned and 3 months after that i discovered i was pregnant! John & I were delighted and after a healthy pregnancy Ross was born in November 2006.
I went into labour 4 days early on my sister's wedding day! I still managed to be her chief bridesmaid though and Ross was born in the early hours of the next day. When Ross was 9 months old i became pregnant again and Owen was born in May 2008
