file Falling pregnant with endometriosis

3 years 2 months ago #272687 by NicolaF
Hi all :)

I joined this site last month but havent posted properly until now! We are trying for a 2017 baby god willing! I suffer from endometriosis though, this is 3rd month trying and unsuccessful so far. Unfortunately because we moved back from UK to south africa last year the medical aid we chose declared my endometriosis as an existing condition and gave me a 12 month waiting period! so 1 October is the earliest I could go for another laparoscopy, my first one was in November 2010 :( So I know nothing is going to happen until then, but I still feel so upset the day my period comes :( everyone keeps saying 'its only been 3 months give it time' but it is really hard NOT to feel disappointed!!! :( especially when i know the endo needs to be removed and that I have to wait so long until it can be done on medical aid :(

Does anyone know can i still fall pregnant in the next few months or is it unlikely until the endo is removed? If so then I kind of want to forget about it and just start trying again after my laparoscopy so I can avoid this monthly tears and disappointment.

Thank you in advance :) Praying for lots of 2017 babies!!! xxx
