Infertility and Endometriosis

Posted on May 04, 2018

Trying to get pregnant with endometriosis can be a long and emotional process. If you're having difficulty conceiving, you're not the only one. Members of MyEndometriosisTeam talk about high levels of stress and anxiety when they're trying to conceive, or TTC. “I can't stop obsessing over wanting a baby and not knowing if I will be able to get pregnant,” one member wrote. Members offer each other support and solidarity in the face of fertility difficulties. “You're not alone,” one member encouraged another. Having “endo sisters” to comfort you with words of support and advice can help take a little bit of stress out of TTC.

On MyEndometriosisTeam, the social network and online support group for women living with endometriosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Infertility is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about infertility:

I’ve been trying to conceive for the past five years so why not give it all a try?

I feel deeply empty and still wondering if this pain will go away and I will conceive one day.

We are trying to conceive and will be starting an IUI cycle soon.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about infertility:

How do you cope with infertility?

Is anyone stage 2 and struggling with infertility?

I will be having excision surgery soon and I was wondering if anyone tried to conceive after surgery?

Can you relate?
