I'm new on here, and I'm hoping for some advice/info sharing.
I've just been diagnosed with endometriosis after trying to conceive for 14 months. Last Wednesday I had a laparoscopy, a hysterscopy D & C, a cystoscopy and a dye test. I was diagnosed with stage 2 in severity and stage 3 in distribution, located outside the uterus, in the pouch of Douglas and on the surface of the rectum. Luckily, the gynaecologist managed to surgically remove all of it, and has advised us to try to conceive naturally for the next 6 months. However, our fertility specialist is keen for us to start with IVF, as my husband and I are both 36 yrs old. We're now very undecided about whether to wait to see if we conceive naturally, now that the endometriosis has been removed, or to go down the IVF route asap, if it means increasing our chances of conceiving.
I was wondering has some advice they could share with me about endometriosis and TTC, either naturally, or via IVF?
Sorry for the long message, I hope someone is able to share their experiences/info.
