Hi everyone. I've just joined as I feel like I need support.
From the age of 17 I've suffered with terrible period pains. A doctor visit when I was 19 resulted in me going on the pill but nothing else. It wasn't until I wanted to start a family when I was 27 that I was finally diagnosed with endometriosis. Since then I've been on the pill again for a year and then my husband and I have been trying for 18 months with no luck. After we finally decided to go straight to IVF (due to cost as we are now living overseas and have to pay privately) my first day 2 bloods showed high FSH (level 14). So IVF was not recommended and I've been put back on the pill and I have to go back every month to have my bloods done until I have appropriate levels because the doctor things the cysts on my ovaries might be the cause.
I've been doing some reading and from what I can see there's nothing that's really going to change my FSH levels because I have endo. I was wondering if anyone had any experiences of IVF with high FSH that they could share. I want to be able to decide whether I should stay on the pill and hope it changes my hormones or if I should go ahead with the IVF knowing that the chances are so slim. Either way I could end up wasting time but I really have no idea what to do!!
