I'm hoping for some advice on experiences with ifv for Endo related infertility.
I had my last lap on the 6th of Feb and we have been trying since then with no luck. Ive been ovulation (using ovulation sticks) every month and trying all the timed conception stuff. But to no avail.
We had our first assisted conception appointment the other day and after a little bit of questioning the specialist announced that the best option would be to try IVF straight away. No other treatments or options. She explained that other treatments may make things worse again and send me back to the beginning in relation to treatments and would waste more time in relation to conceiving.
I'm pretty freaked out to be honest. I was not expecting this and feel a bit overwhelmed. I had been getting really positive vibes from the Endo team so was not preping myself for such an extreme result!
In addition, the funding elements of this are daunting in its self. We live in the Merton and Sutton borough which has an appalling reputation for funding Ivf.
So my question is, what experiences of Ivf and assisted conception? Any advice on fighting for funding and any insight into the success rate and treatments specifically tailored for Endo patients?
