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!

PPD/PPA

That stands for post partum depression/post partum anxiety. It's real. And it really sucks. Good news is that I am on the upswing. Just wanted to update since it's been a while. Meds are good and hormones are finally leveling out. I still haven't decided what to do about birth control. It seems so foreign to even consider, but, that damned endo. Ive been wanting everything to calm down before going down the hormonal road. So, going to see my Dr. next week to do a little more medication adjustment...and then, then I'll start looking into all that.

Thanks for the positive words from my last post! Hope you all are well. I'm playing catch up!!!!

I know what you mean about the pill as I am often on it to calm my endo down even though we are meant to be trying for a baby! Seems so wrong!! Dam endo!
