Endometriosis, after pregnancy?

I have struggled with endometriosis for several years (and 2 surgeries). Pregnancy takes away the symptoms, but now i'm about to have my baby. When my cycle continues, will it be back full force? I have heard so many different takes on this, from books and doctors and web searches. Do any of you have personal experience? I must say, I'm praying it lessens or completely disappears. I'm ready for a life without thaty particular agonizing pain.

  • Well i've always heard that it can come back full force after having a child. I ended up getting a hysterectomy when my second child was a year old
