Can I get pregnant with endometriosis?

This is the question I asked myself since being diagnosed with endometriosis, March 2019… and probably this is also quite a popular question for many other women/girls with endometriosis. My husband and I have been trying for the past 2 years already and our wish to have a baby is bigger than ever before. The…

Endo-surgery diary part 2

-Warning- this post might be longer and more detailed than usual, but I really want to post it, as it might give certain readers a good overview of how you might feel after a laparoscopic excision surgery to remove endometriosis. It gets really personal sometimes, but I tried to stick as close as possible to…

Strange how we spend our entire life (between 16 and 33) not to become pregnant. Condoms, birth control pills and morning after pills have probably…

Trying to make babies…

Some of you have surely asked this question, when you landed on this blog. What is she trying for? 🙂 I can imagine though, that blog readers who find themselves in the same situation, immediately knew, because I’m sure, that so many of you are doing the same. It was thanks to our attempt to…

Endo-what?

‘Endometriosis.’ Usually, I have to repeat it twice, because most people have never heard about this disease. Strange, if you consider 1 out of 10 women suffer from it. (which is approximately 176 million women in the world) We have the same number of patients who suffer from asthma or diabetes. Let me start by giving a…

Welcome!
