Practical Methods To Effectively Control & Overcome
Symptoms Of Endo Once & For All - Guaranteed
A common acronym used in forums and blogs about people trying to get pregnant is TTC (trying to conceive). Endometriosis is a chronic disease that affects 5 million women in the United States, and many more around the world. A woman with endometriosis experiences problems with her endometrium or the uterine lining; instead of staying within the uterus, the endometrial tissue finds its way to the fallopian tubes and ovaries. Endometriosis makes it very difficult when TTC because the tissue keeps the sperm from reaching the egg. But this doesn't mean that pregnancy is impossible. These TTC success stories recount the experiences of women who overcame endometriosis and got pregnant despite the disease.
Kathy's amazing conception story
Kathy had been trying to conceive for three years before she went to see the doctor. Before her visit, she would experience debilitating abdominal pain for the first half of her cycle, which ended with very heavy periods. The pain in her abdomen was so bad, she'd have to stay in bed for an average of ten days of every month. After looking at her uterus, the gynecologist told her that she had very severe endometriosis that would require the removal of the uterus and ovaries. Kathy was determined to get pregnant and decided to seek a second opinion. She went to a naturopathic center, where she took a couple of tests for nutrient and fatty acid levels. After a month of receiving micro-current treatments and going on a special diet, some noticeable changes started to appear. While she didn't get pregnant yet, her next period was less heavy and painful. Four months into the treatment, she only experienced minor pain and didn't have to go to bed for days. Eight months after her visit to the naturopathic center, Kathy finally got pregnant and a healthy baby girl was born nine months later.
Jane's story of success
Jane never experienced infertility problems until she got endometriosis after giving birth to her daughter via Cesarean section. During a Cesarean delivery, some pieces of the uterine lining may be transplanted in the incision and start growing from there. Jane didn't realize she had endometriosis until she went to see her doctor after trying to conceive for two years. The doctor saw the scar tissue and informed Jane that she would probably never get pregnant again. This broke her heart; she wanted at least two kids to keep each other company. Jane insisted that something be done, so her gynecologist suggested that she go through a laparoscopy to get rid of the endometrial tissue. Afterwards, she was given fertility drugs to increase ovulation. Barely two months after the surgery, Jane got pregnant! She had some special screenings done at 6 weeks and 8 weeks to make sure that her baby was growing properly, but the rest of her pregnancy was uneventful. In a few months, her daughter had a baby brother.
Jenny's TTC victory story
Jenny was still single when she got diagnosed with endometriosis four years ago. She had two painful laparoscopies to get rid of the endometrial tissue. After the second surgery, her gynecologist advised her to try to conceive now if she ever wants children; there was a possibility that the endometrial tissue would grow back. However, the timing for motherhood didn't seem right because Jenny had only started dating the man who would eventually become her husband. Fortunately, she had been told about the wonders of natural progesterone cream and how it can prevent endometrial tissue from returning. So she started using the cream right away and it really helped. Jenny and her husband married a year later and had no trouble starting a family.
