I had my first appointment with the IVF clinic today which considers whether I am even able to have IVF.
They did an internal scan to see if there was anything obstructing my ovaries, there wasn't which was good but they didn't find any follicles in my right ovary and only one follicle in my left ovary - what does this mean?
We came away feeling very dejected and unsure whether they would give the green light to IVF. It doesn't sound very promising.
I have been and continue to be on depo injections since July 2014. I know they only recommend 6 months but I'm due to have another laparoscopy in two weeks so my consultant wanted me to stay on the injections for a bit longer so as not to wake up 'the devil that is endometriosis'.
Would this have an impact on why there was only one follicle?
I'm not due to have my follow up appointment with the IVF clinic until June so a bit of a wait, hence my questions.
Lastly, is anyone under two hospitals - I'm under St Mary's in London for the treatment of my endometriosis (which is stage 4) and Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea hospital for IVF. They are the same hospital I believe (on different sites) but there doesn't appear to be much joining up. I assumed the paperwork would get shared between and decisions were made jointly but that doesn't appear to be happening.
Its all just a nightmare!
Some advice would be truly welcomed xx
