I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Eff you Endo...EFF you

No go.  There is an endometrioma hanging off my right ovary, and, apparently I attempted to ovulate from that side this month.  It's presence is inhibiting the production of the hormones I need to plump up the lining and to get my progesterone anywhere near where it needs to be.  No mature follicles, lining too thin and progesterone too low. 
 
I hate this.

My Endo Journey said...

Thanks Barb-it isn't simply a progesterone issue. All was well last month when I ovulated from the other side. It's the mass on the ovary that messes everything up.

Thanks everyone. Ugh!!!

You have more endometriomas than I've ever heard of!!! I'm so so so sorry. Seriously, endo is absolutely evil, and it's really attacking you. I hope you can get over this hump. Are they recommending removing it??? I hope you don't have to go in again... but goodness, those endometriomas need to pack up and move ON! You have my sympathy, I'm so impressed by how strong you are.

Didn't your doc take your endometrioma off in your last lap? Or is this a new one?
