I’m sorry.  TTC is so hard for a lot of people but we’re hear to listen to you vent whenever  you need it ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I see you just got married – congrats!  Enjoy being a honeymooner too – at least that will make all the BDing more fun!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

@NessaNessa:  First, I am very sorry for your loss:(  But there are so many options for you – you don’t have to jump to IVF.  There are tons of different medications and protocals to make you ovulate ( I have done most of them and they’re really not that bad!).  Are you working with an RE?  Or still an OB?  I have a friend who just had a Lap and she was told immediately after the surgery *exactly* what the deal is – how much endo they removed, what her tubes looked like, etc, etc., so while she won’t know if it “works” until she gets pregnant (hopefully very soon!), her doctor was able to tell her exactly what happened and what things looked like.  So hopefully, you’ll get more answers than you think this week, and you can make decisions from there.  And if you don’t already have an RE, I would suggest you seek one out to help you make decisions about your anovulatory cycles.  An RE’s job is to get you pregnant.  An OB/GYN doesn’t have nearly as much expertise in this area, their job is to care for your pregnancy (and your vjj!).  Good luck with your Lap on Wed!

I’d wait to see the results of the surgery before deciding it will takes years and injections. Don’t dig yourself a hole you don’t know if you need yet ๐Ÿ™‚  I hope for you the surgery does work! Infertility sucks, but the medicines aren’t that bad especially if you are just doing monitored cycles and not full blown IUI or IVF. I will think lots of positive thoughts! ๐Ÿ™‚

Try looking into alternative medicine. I know Traditional Chinese Medicine sees Endo as blocked Qi. By using herbs and acupucture you can keep the Endo away and increase you TTC success. Try reading The Infertility Cure, find an acupucturist/herbalist and maybe even look into Mayan Fertility Message.

Good Luck!

I had a coworker with endometriosis. She was 40 (her hubby was 63…) and she had surgery to clear out her uterus. Her doctor told her if she ever wanted to get pregnant, now would be the time or it wouldn’t happen…they did IVF, she got pregnant and now they have a 4-year-old!

She was 40 and overweight which is why I think they pushed the IVF so soon but it can and does happen so stay positive!

I know how easy it is to get overwhelmed with all the options and possibilities when dealing with fertility issues.  Just try to take it one step at a time and not freak yourself out.  Wishing you all the best!!!!
