Endometriosis/fibroid/adhensions/cyts

Hello my beautiful friends. Hope your all doing good? This is my first post in this forum and hoping to hear from everyone whose been in similar situation like me their own experiences and also any positive vibes will be highly appreciated. Early last year I was diagnosed with Endo which led to adhensions/fibroid and cyts on my left tube. I had an open surgery done to remove fibroid and adhensions, cyts drained out from left tube which left me with another worry whether it will return back as I had preferred it to be clipped. I am now on zoladex injection for three months after which I will be going ivf private funding. I also have low ovarian reserve and would appreciate if their is anything I can do to improve it as ivf is a lot of money. It breaks my heart that am going through this, I have never had any child, got married late at 36 and am now 37 this year. Praying to God for my miracle baby 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿

Hi Jenifer,

I had a very similar situation to you (although with keyhole surgery rather than open). We went ahead with our first round of ivf very soon after surgery to increase our chances of success and chose the most successful clinic in the country. Luckily it worked first time for us but was touch and go as my follicles (egg sacks) didn't develop quickly enough so we had quite a long cycle. We also had immune testing and intralipid treatment during the cycle which is recommended for people with endo. This may or may not have made a difference to our success but we were prepared to do everything that was offered to us. Your egg reserve being low isn't necessarily an issue (that's what we've always been told anyway) as long as the quality is good. So don't let that figure get you down. That's the joy of ivf, they tailor your treatment to your circumstances. As long as you choose a clinic that does this. Best of luck with it all and keep the faith. xx

Hi Jenifer

Like you I had fibroids and endometriosis. I had a few unsuccessful IVF cycles and on the last one my NHS consultant wrote to the clinic to ask if they would consider keeping me on zolodex/synarel for a longer period of time to calm the endometriosis down a bit before going through the stimulation stage... well I truly believe this was what worked for me. I got the best results ever from that cycle! I would always say the clinics should tailor make the drugs cycle as going by standard protocol for everyone doesn’t always work. I wish you all the very best xx
