I had a laparotomy where stage 4 endometriosis was found guilty of the 17+ years of my suffering. I mean what even happened to stages 1-3!? I was advised that if I wanted to have children, I needed to get involved with a fertility specialist as soon as possible as my left fallopian tube was already destroyed.
After 18 months of trying, we realized that getting pregnant might be more difficult than we had anticipated. After many more doctor’s visits, I was put on more medication and tracking ovulation.
As a child, I asked to hold all the babies and I was the queen of babysitting. When I was a teenager, I couldn’t wait to be a mom. In fact, if I am totally honest, I wanted to be a mom way more than I ever wanted to be a wife. Is that bad to say?
Hello, my name is Aubrey. I am 28 and I have endometriosis and PCOS. Around 9 years ago, I started going to the ER for rupturing ovarian cysts. If you’ve ever felt that pain, you know it’s unbearable to the point that you start throwing up.
