Infertility and Endometriosis

Posted on May 04, 2018

"I can't stop obsessing over wanting a baby and not knowing if I will be able to get pregnant." --MyEndometriosisTeam member

It can take months or years for women to get pregnant whether they have endometriosis or not. Fertility unknowns during the childbearing years can cause high levels of stress and anxiety, especially for women with endometriosis. The need for support from others who understand becomes paramount.

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?

IVF is much more successful if Endometriosis is excised first.
