So I have a question. I have endometriosis and have been on depo for around two and a half years due to chocolate cysts (endometriosis cysts, basically) and endometriosis scarring. I had horrible, horrible pain during my period.
I want to get off of depo soon(ish) so that my husband and I can try to have a baby, but I'm honestly terrified of having a period again and having to deal with the pain.
Just wondering who has been on depo for endometriosis and then wanted to get pregnant and how they went about it. I am hoping it's possible to outsmart my body and get pregnant before having a period, but not sure that is possible. I don't think anyone (my family and my husband) understands how afraid I am of dealing with the pain of a period again and how it really screws up my body.
I am also not sure when to stop depo and start trying. I'm 33 and my husband will be 35 soon, so we are not getting any younger, and would probably like to have a baby in at least two years. I am actually just graduating from nursing school in December, so I thought it would be good to work for a half a year to a year before getting pregnant.
Any thoughts, ideas, whatever, I would greatly appreciate it.
I'm just a little torn about the whole thing and wondering what everyone else has done that's gone through something similar.
Thanks so much!
