Post subject: What are my chances?
Hello all!

This is my 14th cycle of TTC. I had gone to a fertility doctor and after reading my medical history and speaking with me, she suspected Endometriosis. So we went ahead with the Lap and Dye in early April. I went for my follow up and she said my uterus looks good, my ovaries look good, my tubes are clear. But she did find 3-4 small spots of Endo on the OUTSIDE of my uterus.

I asked her if she believed this is the reason I have not gotten pregnant, she said YES. I am just not entirely convinced yet. I know internet does not always have factual information, but every website I have come across says that if you only have mild (stage 1) endo removed, your chances of conception do not increase.

So does anyone have any experience of this? What do you think? Do you think by those 3-4 spots of endo being removed on the OUTSIDE of my uterus actually increases conception chances? I am just wondering if something else could be wrong. For instance, she never did the blood test to see if I even ovulate, is that weird?

By the way, my husband had a semen analysis and all is well there.

Thanks so much for reading and to anyone that responds Smile

I don't know about the endo but I certainly think you need bloods doing to check for ovulation.

Hope you get more answers soon.

Banoffee, I thought so too. Even before I scheduled the LAP I asked if I could get that blood test done to see if I was even ovulating before we went ahead with the much more invasive LAP. I was told that the course of treatment would not change, so it was not neccessary. Now after my LAP they want to start me on a cycle of clomid with IUI. Yet, they have not even done the blood test yet? If my doctor thinks the Endo was why I wasn't getting pregnant, why is she wanting to start me on clomid and have IUI?

I had quite severe endo (symptomless though) and conceived 3 months after finishing a cause of zoladex to try and remove it. I can't see how they can prescribe clomid without doing bloods first.

I don't understand why she'd recommend clomid as one of the side effects of that can be endometriosis or worsening of endometriosis.
