The Fertile Anomaly

I’m a 27 year old, single woman trying to navigate my way through the fertility world. I was diagnosed with endometriosis on October 14, 2008 and my life has changed ever since. I’ve had 3 laparoscopies and can finally say, my endometriosis is being properly managed. Along the way, I met my wonderful reproductive endocrinologist (RE) who has not only been treating my endometriosis but has been making every effort to preserve my fertility in the process.

I will focus on my personal journey up until the point where I froze my eggs earlier this year. I am truly a medical anomaly. I’m a living example of “Murphy’s Law” as far as my medical history is concerned. Because of this, I’m elated to share my ups and downs with the fertility community… and who knows, one day, maybe my little ones too! 

I can be found online at or on twitter as endomebad.

Endometriosis, one of the most overlooked and detrimental chronic diseases that plagues a woman’s reproductive health, is more connected to fertility than we understand. Sadly, endometriosis is usually found once the damage is done, once a woman has been trying for over a year to become pregnant, once it has already wreaked havoc on the reproductive system. So how does one take a proactive stance against a disease that has an unknown beginning and no possible end? How does a woman explain to her gynecologist that she has symptoms that concern her and should be looked into on a deeper level?

Exactly what is infertility? According to the Mayo Clinic, infertility is defined as, “not being able to get pregnant despite having frequent, unprotected sex for at least a year for most people and six months in certain circumstances.” But, it is more than that. Those who suffer with infertility can attest to this. Nothing hurts more than realizing you are suffering from infertility. Actually, something does. When a physician tells you, before you even attempt conception, that you are infertile. That has to be worst feeling ever: to be defeated prior to trying.

Let me start by saying, I am not an outwardly emotional person. I float through emotions quite often during the day (some refer to that as moody) but seldom do I act on those emotions. With that being said, if you are a single woman, egg freezing is not for the faint at heart.

Reasons to Freeze Eggs

a blog by Sherika Wynter, January 27, 2014

“How did you just decide to freeze your eggs? ” is probably the most popular question I receive when I share my experience. Why is that? Because freezing your eggs is not something that is on a woman’s bucket list. I run into many women who don’t give real thought to their fertility until one of three things happen:

The egg freezing process can take a toll on you physically and emotionally. While some would argue the emotional effect is more important than the physical, the physical aspect cannot be ignored. Prior to my freezing cycle, I scoured the Internet looking for articles where women honed in on their experience: how the body felt, affects on work/social life, any physical scarring, etc. Sadly, the outcome was slim. For this reason, I want to take a moment to recap my experience.
