Can I get pregnant?

I have endometriosis. For about a year and a half I have taken the pill continuously, only having a period every few months. The past two months have been really hectic. I ran out of birth control pills and never had the time to pick more up. I have more now, but need to wait for my next cycle. I have had sex these past two months. The past week I have been extremely tired. I feel like I'm dragging myself around. I have also been moody, but no other pregnancy signs but those. Is it possible for me to get pregnant?

I know darn good and well that I replied to your message the day you posted it. I have endo, too and was told I'd not get pregnant ever again. I'm pregnant with my 3rd after being told that.

Based on what you said in your post, you most certainly could be pregnant. Is AF late? If you aren't sure, just count forward from when your last one was and see where it should fall this month. Being tired and moody could be sign that AF is just around the corner, or it could be your first pregnancy symptom. Tired is always my first sign, before AF is even late I'm dragging, yawning, wanting to go back to bed all the time, a nap always sounds good, late night anything isn't interesting enough to keep me up.

Let us know if you are, I've been waiting to see a post back from you (and my post wasn't even here, sorry, don't know what happened)

Thank You so much for responding! I'm expecting AF at the end of this week. I've been feeling extra tired for the past week and a half. I'm talking I'll be up for a couple hours, then take a two hour nap! No other pregnancy signs though. I have had some small cramps.

My last AF was a bad one. An extreme amount of pain, with not so much blood. I was in so much pain the day after it began, I almost went to the emergency room. The cramps were hurting so bad that I was holding myself up on all fours, because if I laid on my back, side, or front I was in extreme pain. After a couple hours it subsided.

I'm glad to hear that your pregnant with your third child AND you have endo. I have always loved children, but after having surgery to remove some endo I was scared that I would never have a child. Thank You for being reassuring!
