I've just had a failed IVF cycle and have noticed that my endometriosis seems to have got worst. I have painful lower back pain and have two nodules on my rectum (to much info I know but on the outside so I can feel them if that makes sense).
I have stage 4 endometriosis and would love to hear otherwise but don't think that's a good sign as think that means it's on my bowel.
I want to start my next IVF round in a few months but should I tackle this first - just wondering that as its on my bowel would it affect IVF in anyway?
Can the IVF medication cause my endo to speed up and get worst quicker if that makes sense? Before my IVF round I didn't suffer from any of this.
I've already had two operations to tackle my endo (the last one in March 2015) (my consultant knew it was on my bowel then but left it as it wasn't affecting me) and have been on the injections for 9 months previously so really want to focus on IVF now.
This disease is a nightmare! xx
