[FONT=Arial][COLOR=blue]Hi everyone! I'm been hovering on this website reading the posts and finally decided to come out and introduce myself!
My DH and I have been married for 4 and a half months now. And just this month he gave the go ahead for ttc!
Anyway, we had originally thought we would start ttc after being married a year but my body is saying otherwise. A year ago I got diagnosed with endometriosis... So I started a treatment of Lupron (for all who don't know, it puts you into false menopause). I stopped getting af and started getting hot flashes! It sucked but at least I didn't have the horrible af's or cramps anymore.
About halfway through my treatment my appendix ruptured while I was in the hospital! They didn't know I had appendicitis and when I told them it hurt down here, they thought it was something else. So yeah, they didn't find it till quite a bit later and I was pretty sick from that.
Then me and my DH got married (he's 26, I'm 22) and things were fine. I finally started getting af again two months ago and went in to my ob/gyn a week ago to talk about the endo and what to do about a baby. He suggested that we start trying now because of the endo and because of possible internal scarring due to the appendix bursting!
Makes me mad at the stupid hospital but happy that we get to start trying sooner. I'm kind of scared to be thinking about motherhood earlier than we thought but I would rather have them sooner than never. DH is kinda freaked too. I know it changes the dynamics of a relationship but I know I want to be a mommy.
Anyway, that's my tale. I'm glad to on this board. I think it will help with the trying and waiting and all that!
Thanks for listening!

Hi! I'm Lara (TTC for a month now). Wow, sorry about the stuff you had to go through, but it's kinda cool that you get to start trying! It's fun!

Best of luck!

Hi! I'm a newbie also and have been ttc #1 for 10 months now.
WOW! our stories are somewhat similar. I was diagnosed with endo about 5 years ago and have been on 2 cycles of Lupron (6 months each time) and on birth control pills when I wasn't on Lupron up until November. My DH and I were married on Nov 20th, 2004 and began trying right after we got back from our honeymoon.

I never thought that getting pregnant would be so difficult. do a little bding and get pregnant. I wish it was that simple for us all!!!

my obgyn put me on Clomid and nothing round 1. I just o'ed this past Sunday during round 2 of Clomid so hopefully this will be our lucky month. This 2ww is killing me and I still have 12 days to go!!!

good luck to you and hope you're stay here will be short and sweet!

The Lupron is a nightmare! Makes me unable to wait till menopause. ha~ha~ha!

but if it works to keep the endo suppressed and helps with our chances of becoming mommies, then it is worth all of the side effects!
