My new OB performed a lap and confirmed that it was severe endo. He perfomed an ablation. We though we were good to go since the paing got a lot better but never left. 8 months later no baby and the pain was starting to increas again we decided it was time for a FS. Both hubby and I did the work up, he has Super Sperm except sometimes it can be watery (remedy is for me to lay down after BDing). AFM, another lap for endo was performed with excision (said to have better results) and he cleared the scar tissue from my tubes and opened them, and removed a couple smaill fibroids. Dx with Stage 4 endo (everything was stuck together). RE cleared us 8 weeks later to ttc.

I was in BC for a few weeks because I was going to start femara but it was post poned because test showed I also have mild pcos. Now Im on metformin and I was also given synthroid because my thyroid levels were 2.8 as compared to under 2 like they like to see it. After a horrible period last week, I will be trying femara in 3 weeks.
I am sorry you feel sick today! I give you . I hope you'll feel better!
I took BC for 2 years. I finished the last pack and had period for 7-8 days, very heavy and very painful. That problem lasted for years. Since January I am on anti-infammatory diet. No fried foods, no sugar, no white bread, no pork or beef, no milk (only yogurt), no coffee. I eat fish, eggs, turkey, chicken, complex carbs, legumes, anti-inflammatory spices and herbs, cruciferous veggies and lots of berries. Also I make natural tea during my period, that helps to thin my blood, so i have less clots. I made a video, but now I have difficulties uploading. I really want to share my success! Now I have very mild, light periods that lasts 5-6 days. Now during my period I have ovaries pains. Ultrasound on May didn't show cysts.

Hi praying, that sounds like a crazy journey. Hopefully it will happen for you soon!
How was recovery time with your last lap?
Wish I could do an anti inflammatory diet, where do you find info on this?

Officially two years matured and two years trying today. Going to celebrate with my hubby and not get to upset.

What are you ladies up to?

My recovery time for the ablation was faster maybe 3 days before I felt 95% normal. I had it on Friday morning and I went back to work on Tuesday, though I could have gone back on monday.

The excision lap was a good 3 weeks before I felt 80% normal. since everything was stuck together, they had to make a larger then usual excision to take it all out.

Greetings!


Hi all!

I'm fairly new to the site but hubs & I have been TTC for 2.5 years now. I had perused the site a little, but had a hard time relating to the regular TTC boards (don't feel like I fit in with 23 year olds TTC for 2 months and omg-so-bummed about it ) but wasn't sure I was ready to admit that I might fit into the LTTTC group but after reading through this thread I feel ya ladies!!! I do think that we should/could have started more than just calendar-based timing, part of my problem over the last 2-3 years is that I think I just thought that I could somehow out-smart it.

Hubs & I have lived in the same place for our whole lives, then I had to move last year (without him) and we only see each other once, maybe a few, times each month, which I'm sure you can imagine really messes with our timing! I know the risks of extended exposure to clomid and I don't want to start until we're formally living back together again .

In my mid 20's I did 4 cycles of egg donation for an anonymous infertile couple, and so I've gone through cycles of menopur, follastim, gonal-F, and egg retrieval procedure, and if that's the next step for us after clomid, I'm ready & have no fear! (well, except for the $ that is... )

Good luck to you all!

Hi Auror ... Welcome.
Have you or your dh had any tests?

Also, why the medical disclaimer in your signature, never seen this before?

Initial tests came back ok (his were perfect, I might not be ovulating some months though)

I'm a (after post edit, updating job title to "Chief Medical Officer of the Zombie Apocolypse Preparedness Team"), and our hospital has some really aggressive internet monitoring policies, so on facebook & any other online representation of ourselves or the hospital we have to state a disclaimer.

Welcome, Aurora! Interesting about the disclaimer. When you say that you have had friends sued for less, dear lord what on earth were they sued for?? Bummer about being in a different place than your OH. Definitely makes things tricky! How long will that go on?

Thanks, Praying. I had to look up ablation versus excision. This is the clearest explanation I found, in case anyone else wants to see it. I guess you don't know which one you'll need until they're in there with the laparoscope.

Auroro ... That is nuts but better to be safe than sorry, especially in the states. I am in Canada and although is bad is not as bad for personal lawsuits.

That does suck with your dh, how far away is he?

Thanks got the info pebble!

Hubs will be formally moving here in August. We're 6 hours apart now. If we each drive 3, we're in the middle of nowhere, not even pretty-nowhere, like strip malls and interstate nowhere :/ We still manage to see each other 2-3 times/month at best, sometimes just once, but we're taking a nice long 10 day vaca coming up soon So I'm hoping for a long cycle this month (mine range 26-38! We'll see!

People are crazy that is the Dumbest thing I have ever heard! What people think they are owed for just being alive and in our way, it disgusts me.
Totally understand the signature now!

Edit ** Sorry if that is harsh but it is true.
