I am starting IVF in January. I have adenomyosis and a stage 4 rve endometrioma (in a place that would likely mean resectioning the bowel to remove it, so lap consultant said to leave it for as long as possible if my symptoms are bearable, and until after I've had children). I would like to know if anyone else has these conditions and can share any insights or tips? I get a lot of burning and stabbing sensations, lots of IBS type symptoms and so much spotting (I'm not sure how I'm going to work out 'day 1' of my cycle for IVF!) I would also like to know if anyone with either endometriosis or adenomyosis has been through IVF and their experiences? I'm not worried about the pain, I just want to know what's normal/what to expect, and if it is likely to make the endo worse afterwards? So little seems to be known but my consultant has very much a 'just get on with it' attitude and laughed at me when I said is there anything I can do in terms of diet etc? (I already avoid alcohol, gluten and caffeine as they all upset me, but other than a conception multivitamin I don't take anything). Any success stories of conceiving with either condition would also be fantastic to hear right now. Thank you xx
