Pregnant with Endo? need some hope...

Just wondering if anyone got pregnant and has endometriosis? anyone concieve naturally or with assistance? Anyone pregnant after lap?

I just want to know if there is hope for's depressing. Been trying for 1.5 years. Had a lap done in April. Stage 3 endo. Dr. cleaned what he could. Still trying, but nothing yet. I go back to the specialist next week. I am 37.. don't want to keep trying forever. I feel like everyone is popping up preggo everywhere and no one understands what it's like to have issues...

Thanks for anyone's insight.

Re: Pregnant with Endo? need some hope...

You should probably post this on the infertility board since there are others there that know what you're going through.
But, just to let you know, my cousin had endo. She did IUIs after a lap and got pregnant on her 2nd try back in '06. Then trying again in '08, it was recommended that she not do another lap but go right into doing more IUIs. On her 2nd try, she got pregnant with twins and she is due in September. Good luck!!!

Re: Pregnant with Endo? need some hope...

I have stage 4 endo and have 2 yo twin girls and am now pregnant again. I had a lap done and 1 month later became pg by clomid/iui (first try). This time around I became pg naturally! There sure is hope!

I was worried that the infertility treatment were starting too close to the lap by my specialist said that was the best time and how right she was!

Best of luck to you!

Re: Pregnant with Endo? need some hope...

Yes, I have endo and have a lap done in May 08 for stage 3 endo. I am now almost 7 months pregnant and was able to get pregnant naturally and I'm 36 years old! However, I don't think that it was the lap that helped me, I still had VERY painful cramps after the lap, so the lap didn't change how I felt.

What really helped me is that I had my thyroid levels checked, I did a lot of reading on this subject and asked my doctor to run a thyroid panel on me. My numbers were within the lab range, but my TSH was at the top end of the range, so I read more about this and found that some people benefit from taking medication. So I started on a low dose of thyroid medication and 1.5 months later, boom, I got pregnant! Also, my cramps were much less intense that first month of taking the thyroid medication. The reading that I did suggested that women with hypothyroidism have a higher risk of having endometriosis.

Good luck, there are so many different things to look at other than just endometriosis as being the cause for not getting pregnant. Be your own advocate and do a lot of reading. Don't let the doctors tell you that they don't think you are right, that's what they tried telling me and now since I'm pregnant they finally admit that my thyroid played a roll. I would have proabably never known all of this or became pregnant unless I did my own research!

Re: Pregnant with Endo? need some hope...

I've had two lap procedures, within a year and a half of each other, 2nd one finding an unexpected andenomotoid tumor in the uterus, also before the laps, laser ablation to the cervix for abnormal cells. And now, I am 23 weeks with my first, conceived naturally and also two months after my last surgery.
