BFP on Break with Endometriosis

Although I am being cautiously optimistic, I wanted to share my story with you ladies. After 2 years of not getting pregnant, I was diagnosed with endo in March 2004 via lap. They removed a large endometrioma from my left ovary. Shortly after that, I had a chemical pg and the endometrioma reappeared. Dealing with this, along with a bordeline low sperm count, DH and I started acupuncture, Clomid, Gonal-F and IUIs.

After failed attempts, we decided to take the summer off from treatments and begin the IVF journey in October 2005. Well, lo and behold, I'm pregnant! I had a feeling when my temps were staying up, but I waited to test until yesterday morning. Then I finally got my BFP. I immediately called my RE for some blood work and I got my results yesterday afternoon. I wanted you all to know that it can happen when you least expect it. Best of luck to each and every one of you in this journey!

BFP Naturally wtih Endo/Prayer/After Lap

Over the last few months I have turned to various boards to read success stories. I am finally able to post my own and hope that it keeps you positive and hopeful.

Although my ttc road was short by comparison (7 months), it turned dismal pretty quickly.

I consulted an RE after three months of well timed bd but no success. The doctor was shocked to see that at 29 my FSH level was 20. Further tests found that my left ovary was fluid filled and in a laparascopy my left tube was completely closed off. They also found severe endo.

Immediately following the surgery, I was told to proceed directly to IVF. I now had one tube, elevated FSH, severe endo and hypothyroidism--a recipe that meant a long shot in natural conception.
I decided to put my faith in God, try to get my body in some sort of better health balance and give it three months. If after three months I still wasn't pregnant, I would indeed go straight to IVF.

Well, the good news is that the month after my lap I did conceive naturally (lots of prayer and chinese herbs and accupuncture). I am now 7 weeks and had an ultrasound today which confirmed that the pregnancy is progressing well (I even saw the heartbeat).

Despite the depressing stats, success is possible. I think doctors are too quick to tell us that there is no way it can happen for us naturally. Stay hopeful and keep faith in God.
I hope that you too will soon have your own success story to share.
