Re: need encouragement, getting first lap!

Carisa,
here is my input, I had a Laporoscopy done and they found out I had endometriosis. I was surprised because I didn't have any symptoms. Only that the day before of my period my legs would hurt (no biggy, i thought it was normal). Well, at the end I was also having pain during sex. I found that very odd.

I was treated with Lupron for 4 months (where they stop your period). Much better. I still have the slightly leg pain before my period but i don't have the sex pain anymore (well, maybe every now and then i do, but it is not really something to be concerned). DH and I have found positions that would help .

That Dr then did 4 IUI which failed. Changed Drs and I went to a better Reproductory specialist. He then did a hysterosalpingogram (HSG), an x-ray of the uterus and fallopian tubes and they find out my fallopian tubes were totally plugged due to the endometriosis. We started IVF right after.

The surgery is not bad. You should not be scared. I think my ER hurt more after word. The scission in the belly button is so small that you can't hardly see it. I think if you want to get pregnant and you do have endometriosis, you need to move fast and not postpone it.
