Hoping to get some advice. After 2.5 years of trying to conceive i was eventually diagnosed with endometriosis and had surgery with the excellent James English. He diagnosed me with stage two. Then, 2 cycles later I fell pregnant, it felt like a miracle after trying for so long and our son Jack was born the following April.
We've been trying to conceive again, started around 2 months ago. However, sadly in the last month or two ive noticed endo symptoms have returned. Painful periods, pain radiating down front/inside thighs, pain in hip area etc. Also end of this period has started to get clotty. After what's felt like a year and a half of perfect periods, arriving on time, no spotting etc etc it's been a rude awakening that we are never truly free of this awful bloody disease!
Anyway, I wanted to get some opinions really on whether I should just go for the surgery now, I'm 37 and time is not on my side. Or wait for a few more months of trying, not sure how many and go then? My concern is that each time you have surgery am I correct in thinking it can cause scar tissue making it even harder for egg to implant etc? Also, has anyone found any natural supplements/alternative remedies that have worked for them? I've heard that was a study on pycenegol which showed promising results. I've also just ordered endo complex from wild nutrition created by Henrietta Norton author of Take Control of your endometriosis. It contains Indole 3 carbinol, Betaine hydrochloride and Milk Thistle Powder. Has anyone had any experience with either of those supplements before?
Thanks again for reading!
