I am slowly getting hit with the reality that I may never be able to have children. I have both Endometriosis and PCOS. It was always something that I shut out emotionally, but now I am finding it hard not to think about. I am so tired of hearing - "Dont worry about those things until you are ready to have children, don't think about it." But How do you not think about it every waking hour? I know there are options for me in the future at this point, but I am going down the road of deciding with my Doc whether or not a hysterectomy is for me. But how do you cope until you are ready to take those steps? How do you not worry about it? How do you feel secure with your partner in knowing that you may not ever be able to give them a child?
