I was diagnosed with level 4 endo when I was 19. I have had 7 surgeries to remove various growths, cysts, etc. I have been on every BCP under the sun, the Depo shot, and Lupron. I was told that it would be nearly impossible for me to have children without significant medical intervention, if at all. I was devastated.
My husband and I were married in May of 2004, that October we conceived our 7 year old son. When he was 19 months old we conceived our 5 year old daughter. Three years ago I had surgery to remove my left ovary because it was causing so much pain and still growing cysts. This July we are expecting our third child. (It was medical issues other than the endo that caused the gap between #2 and #3)
Long story short, no the diagnosis of endo does not mean automatic infertility - even if some major interventions have been taken.View Thread
