Endometriosis Expand / Collapse

11/4/2010 4:30 PM
I was diagnosed with Endometriosis at the age of 20 and am now 35. My symptons were major pain in my lower back (right side). It is unbearable pain and I live on aleve and advil daily. That is the only side effect with pain; the only other side effect I have is not being able to concieve on my own. I am getting ready to start 2nd round of IVF and have done egg transfers 3 times. Was not succesful twice; succesful once and then miscarried at 10 weeks. Hoping and praying that we will be succesful this time around!

I have had 2 exploratory laproscopic procedures for endometreosis by 2 different doctors. The only way you can diagnose it is through these procedures where your doctor can actually see the endometreosis. They were in and out procedures with a day of recovery. I tolerated mine well. Also doctor said it would help with getting pregnant. However I have done 6 IUIs and I am just starting IVF treatment now. Also doctor said IVF treatment is a gold standard for endometreosis. Don't know if this helps. Also after both treatments I had to do shots for about 6 months to help clean the rest of it up. (It puts you into a menapause state).

I was diagnosed with mild endometriosis in 2002. I started with fertility procedures in early 2008. I have tried 2 IVFs and 7 IUIs. My OB/GYN said perhaps I might want to try having a procedure to "go in and clean things up" before my next attempt. Fertility doctor said that as they have seen nothing on the sonograms during my various attempts that the endo must not be that bad and is thus not a factor. Who to believe?
