Hello Ladies,

I was diagnosed with endometriosis at 34 while TTC#1. He is now 7yo! Since then I had three more laparoscopies for treatment of pain, and have been TTC#2 for about a year now (four years ago we tried a couple IUIs, too, and gave up). I am now 42 and still trying. I know our chances are small, but I am still hopeful. I would like to join this forum, but had some bad forum experiences recently (somewhere else). I have friends struggling with IF, but none of them have endometriosis.

Welcome to the board! My name is Caitlin. We are ttc our first. I found out that I have endo in January of 2011 after our first loss. I had a lap done then went on the lupron depot shot for six months. We had another loss in February of this year. It will be three years of trying in Feb. This board has a great group of ladies!

Thank you so much Bokkechick for the perfect siggie!!!

Thank you for your warm welcome. Caitlin, I am so sorry to hear about your losses. I will keep you in my thoughts. Just keep trying! My son was over two years in the making, and we've had no luck with another one in over 4 years without protection (well, not counting endometriosis). We are still hoping for the best, although I do loose hope from time to time.

Thank you for another warm welcome. So far it's been touching reading about experiences similar to mine. I met 5 women with endo, but they all ended up having hysterectomies. I am glad I have not done it because we got brave about a year ago and decided to try just one more time to have another child. Living with endo gets really tough from time to time mainly because of the pain and the feeling of being different. It is inspirational to me to read all the success stories. I wish there were more!
