After many years of suffering since my teens, it's now been confirmed by my recently laproscopy that I have endo and it's just under the severe category. I have an enlarged uterus, had a few cysts removed and an ablation. Apart from feeling a little sore from the surgery still, i'm glad I finally know what is going on.
However, I have also found out recently from my GP that a blood test I had done in January has come back with some issues. According to my doctor there is a lot of fluid around my ovaries and my ovaries aren't functioning the way they should be. I missed a few of the terms he mentioned, but Im not getting enough of a hormone. On that subject, I'm also going through menopause, but not actually 'going through' menopause, I just have all the symptoms (night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings etc).
I'm currently taking Norinyl 28 as my pill, missing my period consecutively for about 4-5 months now. I was told this drug is supposed to help suffers with endo, but has created more problems with my hormones.
So now I have to be referred to an endocrinologist to see what is really going on.
As my soon to be hubby and I were planning on starting a family at the end of the year/start of 2015, I'm really worried what this means for me and pregnancy. My only question to every one of my doctors/surgeons/gynos has been about babies and how it would affect us trying but no one has been able to give me an answer.
Has anyone been through a similar situation? Not just for endo sufferers, but for people with hormone imbalances at the same time? And my big question is, how many people have actually been on the drug I mentioned above and what was your take on it?
Very interested to know more information, as I'm petrified I will be told it'll be harder to conceive!
