Success stories? Trying to conceive after laparoscopy for endometriosis

Hi ladies! Looking for some success stories for myself and others here who are in a similar situation. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about 3 years, and I'm 31. After looking into it and seeing on transvaginal ultrasound what appeared to be a ~5-6cm endometrioma on each ovary, I had laparoscopic surgery, during which they successfully removed the endometriomas, confirmed that my tubes were clear, and diagnosed me with stage IV endo. They couldn't get it all - it had travelled all the way up to my liver and diaphragm - so I had the 3-month Zoladex injection the next morning. This was three weeks ago, and I'm trying to stay as positive as possible. My doctor wants me to try hard to conceive naturally as soon as I get my first period, and has prescribed clomid to help when the time comes. She says to enjoy life and try to not stress out. Can anyone help by sharing a success story? Any advice on staying positive? Hugs to all xx

I had endo for 10 years then conceived naturally without even trying. The endo came back after my first child and i had another op, but gave birth, again natural conception a few years later and was endo free for 7 years.

Good luck x


That's great to hear, Fiona - congratulations on your two littles :)

I have a friend who has had 7 laparoscopies to remove Stage IV endo over the last 10 years. She was told she would probably never have children.

She's now the mother of a gorgeous 18 month old, conceived naturally only three months after their wedding! Miracles do happen.

If your tubes are clear, then that's the main thing. Good luck!
