Hi everyone I hope everyone is ok as can be.
I had my laparoscopy today and it couldn't have gone better!
Both of my tubes are clear which is reassuring, I don't have polycystic ovaries so obviously my ovaries didn't require drilling. It turns out I have endometriosis- he found endometriosis in the pouch of Douglas- which is between my uterus and rectum. As he had consent he removed the endometriosis. He thinks because of location this is the reason for the lower left abdomen pain- but to keep an eye on it and if it's no better go back to my GP. Interestingly he also said there is a link between being lactose intolerance and endometriosis- and although not proven I haven't been able to tolerate lactose since this pain begun.
We will be seeing our consultant for a follow up- we are hoping we can just try naturally now the endometriosis has been treated.
After 5 years and 10 months it is nice to know the reason for our infertility.
We are both feeling very positive and have confidence that we can have this baby we want so much! What a difference a good consultant can make....
