I am 22 yrs old and in nursing school. I have had endo for 4 yrs. I have had it removed twice that was 3 yrs ago. I just finished my last lupron shot a month ago, and today I went to my doctor for reavaluation. I was not planning on trying to get pregnant until I was through with school. But after my visit today I am wondering if I should go ahead and start trying. Please tell me what ya'll think. Right I just feel in over my head

pcos is "Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome" I am 24 and I have been ttc for 2 years I didn't know I had endo until I got a lap. in July. (It is the most common female endocrine (hormonal) disorder and is characterized by multiple abnormal ovarian cysts. Most ovarian cysts are harmless, fluid-filled sacs containing immature eggs that attach to the ovaries. But multiple cysts, with a typical appearance of “a string of pearls” or “pearl necklace”, are a hallmark of PCOS. An estimated 5-10% of women of childbearing age are affected by PCOS and it is one of the leading causes of infertility. Post-menopausal women can also suffer from PCOS. Symptoms of PCOS can include excessive weight gain and obesity, irregular, heavy or completely absent periods, ovarian cysts, excessive facial or body hair, Alopecia (male pattern hair loss), acne, skin tags (growths from the skin), Acanthosis Nigricans (brown skin patches) high cholesterol levels, exhaustion or lack of mental alertness, decreased sex drive and excess male hormones.)
