  • I know of 2 people whom both had it and they both did get pregnant but it took them a few years. Don't be discouraged though. Just work with your doctor and keep trying.

  • I have a good friend who has/had endromesiosis. She ended up being able to get pregnant, and it seems to have cleared up her problem, but I'm not positive on that one.
    Good luck!

  • I have it and i had surgery when i was 19. Me and my boyfriend were trying for three years and now i am 34 weeks pregnant. The doctor told me i couldnt get pregnant he was wrong. I was told that pregnancy is the best thing for endometriosis. It will stop or slow is down for up to like 7 years.So good luck dont give up.

  • I have it and was told by 2 doctors that I couldn't have kids. I now have two beautiful children. My husband and I had 1 miscarriage but didn't give up. It took up 1 year to conceive our first child after that. Stay positive!! If you have any other questions please ask.

  • I have stage IV endo and it took us 4 years of trying to get pregnant. There is no rhyme or reason for it. Sometimes those with the most pain have the easiest time and sometimes those with no pain at all have the hardest. I was one of those who had excruciating pain and had a hard time conceiving. Our doctors gave us 0% chance and we ended up surprising them all!
