    Thank you @Kit, once I’ve seen my doctor again I’ll better understand the results of my surgery (always hazey when they explain everything As soon as you wake up) keeping positive and looking forward to hearing my options and taking the next step on the road to motherhood (fingers crossed)

    I just had my second laproscopy, I also had another cyst removed. They’ve found a small amount of endo on my bowels this time and suggested I may need another surgery to remove scar tissue. The recovery from this surgery has been harder then I remember, the gas is killing my shoulders! I have heard that peppermint tea, heat packs and gentle walking can help, but I’ve only found relief in the heat pack.I’ll have another appt with my doctor in a few weeks and figure out he next step

    @mak_trouble891- its super depressing being told to have kids soon, and wanting it so bad but not having a partner. When the questions come up I just joke about having fur babies instead. It is getting harder to avoid the older I get though.
    @Curiosity- I’ve never looked into collecting eggs or ivf (not yet at least) but Im assuming when they collect eggs it would be via ultrasound guided syringe? 
    I couldn’t agree more about having a positive mindset!
      
    It may sound strange but having the career and financial stress kinda makes me feel normal. As in everyone (besides millionaires?) feels those stresses when it comes and to having a family right? At least having fertility issues gives us a little more time to plan… (really holding on to the (few) positives here 😀 )

    @ElleBelle @Curiosity it really is a lot of pressure! And I’ve found that the older I get the worse it gets. Watching your friends fall pregnant with their second/ third children and dodging the ‘so when are you having kids’ questions is mentally exhausting..

    Thanks everyone, I do consider myself very lucky not to have expirienced the pain side of things. @mak_trouble891 my first consult was to actually get an impalanon (I was terrible at remembering to take the pill) my doctor was alarmed that I’d never had periods and referred me to a obygyn. At this stage Id been told there was a very low chance for me to have children, so (My partner of 5 years) and I decided to make the most of my obgyn services and try for a family (there’s a long waiting list on the public health system to see obygyn for fertility) about 10 months of ultrasounds, blood tests and hormone medications they found I wasn’t ovulating. Then they randomly stumbled upon a 7cm cyst (they said they thought it was my bladder). A couple of months later they did a laproscopy and a dye test. The cyst was just over 9 cm on my right ovary, with my left Fallopian tube being blocked and the endometriosis.
    i can’t feel the cyst at all, I occasionally get some discomfort during intercourse but have always thought it was normal.
    Im still waiting and trying to fall pregnant and hopefully after this new cyst is removed in May It will up my chances 🙂

    I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 15yo (am now 26) I’ve never had periods. I needed surgery to remove a 9cm cyst from my right ovary and was diagnosed with stage 3 endometriosis (20yo). I Am now a few weeks away from getting another cyst removed from my left ovary this time.

    im very lucky to have been diagnosed as I’ve never had any apparent symptoms (such as hair, pain, weight gain).

    Anyone else had/having a similar story?
