Bit of a back story, I started showing symptoms of endo at age 13, I went to so many doctors and was constantly told that I just have a low pain tolerance, that I was just an over dramatic teenager and it was normal, that I was exaggerating the pain and my personal favourite, "Just take a panadol and suck it up like the rest of us do" I gave up on seeking medical help for my horrible period pain when I was 18.

DH and I started to TTC about a year ago, it just wasnt happening. Then one evening last September I started getting these really bad pains, went to the doctor and I had a ruptured ovarian cyst, he referred me to a gyno, who diagnosed me with endo. I had my surgery in November where they removed as much as they could, however because it was left for so long it had started to grow into my muscles and that cant be removed, which I have to admit, im still very bitter at a lot of the doctors, and am still tossing up whether to send a copy of my final surgery report to those doctors that brushed me off whose names I can remember (with my gynos blessing, he was shocked when I told him some of the reactions I got when seeking out medical help) so hopefully the next girl that comes in to see them with symptoms like mine dosent get laughed out of the building like I did.

Were going to continue trying naturally for a few months post-surgery, which is where we are currently, no luck at the moment though. However we have booked an appointment to start the IVF process for july, so if were not pregnant by then, were going to start looking into that option.
