Recovery time from laparoscopy for endo

Hi everyone,

I am considering doing the laparoscopy procedure to remove my endo in order to increase my chances of conceiving. Has anyone who has gone through the procedure tell me what kind of downtime to expect?

I work full-time, and would need to work soon after the procedure. How many days does recovery normally take? How many cycles do I have to wait before trying to conceive again? Did anyone see an increase in fertility after the procedure?

Thanks in advance for your help!

For me it took a couple weeks to recover which I think was longer then expected. It was almost 5 years ago so has been awhile. Unfortunately I still have to go the IVF/FET route after many failed IUIs post laparoscopy. It probably depends how serious it is, like for me they found tons of scar tissue.

Has your doctor given you indications on what to expect? Hope you can get some answers soon!

Good luck to you!
