Hello Next week I am having a laparoscopy as been ttc for a year and been diagnosed with pcos. I am having ovarian drilling, checking for endo and treating it if necessary, tubes flushed with dye etc. My parents know and are now putting pressure on me to tell my siblings which I really don't want to do as I don't want any more pressure ttc than I already have. Decided on a compromise that I tell them I am having an operation but not that it's for ttc. Sibling is not in medical field but quite interested in medical stuff and knows a bit about it so will need to give a few details about what I am having done. Thought I could just say I am having a laparoscopy but need reason for it-any ideas?
Why comprimise with your parents? You are TTC, not them!
Lies like this are a PITA as you will be asked about the op before, questioned about the outcome after, and if you show any TTC behaviour your sibling might put two and two together anyway.
We kept things completely to ourselves for a while, and then (on my request) told a very small number of family members. To be honest, in retrospect DH was right, and we shouldn't have told anyone. It does put extra pressure, doesn't help if your the kind of person who likes privacy (which you obviously are) and you can't ever untell.
Your parents are probably worried about you, and it will ease their burden to have your siblings to unload on. That is none of your concern, and you need to do what is right for you right now. Go with your first instincts.
