have been trying to conceive for 5 years, about 18 months ago had a lap, found endometriomas in both ovaries, & elsewhere. had it zapped but they also spotted fibroids at same time so all on hold until had myomectomy & fibroids removed 6 months later. 3 months recovery then went for iVF scan- guess what, endometriomas back in both ovaries & now hydrosaplinx in 1 tube too!
Decided to try mild IVF (less drugs) but have now abandoned 3 cycles as follicles just stop growing. Last cycle had 1 good follicle in left ovary but they cant get to it as great big endometrioma in the way.... so frustrating!!!
Went to see GP yesterday & she thinks I am "faffing about", should just get on with another lap, zap all endo, have my tubes removed & get on with full scale IVF. Easy for her to say, not so easy to just do, especially when I have a full-time quite high-stress job (which I also enjoy & don't want to give up!).
so what next? I have tried acupuncture & even a bit of chinese herbs, but it didn't seem right for me, and just worried me. I don't have a lot of pain from the endo (touch wood!) but its certainly stopping me conceiving, any thoughts or ideas??
