    Default endometriosis

    Hi guys,
    I have been diagnosed with severe endometriosis, but its not in my uturus or on my ovaries.
    I had a miscarriage at 7.5weeks in December. i really want another baby, but im always scared the same thing will happen again..
    Has anyone else been diagnosed with endo & had anything similar happen? Or gone on & had healthy pregnancies after?
    thankyou

    Sorry to hear about your miscarriage..
    Has the doc suggested a laparoscopy to remove the endo from wherever it is or they don't think that has anything to do with conceiving? I have been diagnosed and going to have it removed even though its not severe as im having trouble getting pregnant so hoping that small step may help.
    Maybe ask your doc about removing it just in case that helps you..

    Do you have private health insurance? If the waiting list for public is 12 months then it might be worth you signing up for private health insurance which will have a similar wait time but you'll get to choose your specialist...

    Perhaps ask your GP then for a referral to a fertility specialist to get some advice on whether you should try to conceive over the next 12 months. Again, this is something that would make PHI really worthwhile if you ended up needing fertility assistance down the track.
    But either way some specialist advice would be worthwhile.

    I'm not a doctor but I did have severe endo removed and what I can recall from my specialist is that the link between endo and fertility isn't well understood but I think it's more implicated with an inability to conceive than with miscarriage.

    There are some good books on endo that may be helpful to you? One I read was called Endometriosis by Andrea Molloy.
