Hi Ladies, looking for a little bit of advice. I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in 2006 (in Australia while travelling - had to pay to go to a private clinic after being told in 2005 following a laparoscopy in UK that there was nothing wrong with me!). I have been pregnant on 2 occasions. I suffered a miscarriage at 26 and another at 28 (ectopic pregnancy, natural miscarriage, no surgery required). This was in a previous relationship. My symptoms in my late twenties/ early thirties have been a lot milder than when I was younger and following my second laparoscopy and diagnosis I remained on oral contraceptive (Microgynon 30). In December 2012 I got engaged and I am getting married this December. Given my age (33) and my gynaelogical history we want to start trying to conceive immediately. I stopped taking my oral contraceptive in February in order to ensure that it is completely out of my system when we get married. My periods are 'regular' in that I have had one every month since I have stopped the pill. However, my main concern is the length of my period. At present, I have been spotting for the last 9 days, a combination of red and brown blood, but only today am I experiencing some cramping (mild) and full flow of blood (day 10). Because of this I am finding it very difficult to identify the first day of my cycle accurately. I have decided to start tracking my basal body temperature as a way of possibly identifying when I ovulate. I have never been under the care of a gynaecologist in the UK and just find that I am starting to worry more and more about my ability to conceive and reach full term pregnancy. I have an appt with my GP next week but just feel that I will be told to come back after we have been trying for 6 months. I am desperate to become a mother and just don't know where I go from here?? :((
