Pregnant with endometriosis - and after Husbands cancer

I was diagnosed with Endometriosis about 3 years ago, and told if you want kids youd better start now. We werent really in a position to and so i went on pill to 'treat' endo with the plan we would try as soon as we were married.
Through this time I lso found out I have a retroverted uterus. So after doing a lot of research and knowing a lot of girls with endo, I knew id probably need IVF so saved to pay for this privately.
Also about a year before we were married, my husband found a testicular lump, and had to have his whole testicle removed. This to me understandibly was so hard at time and I made my peace with maybe the kids thing wont happen now. I was told by experts that we should try for maybe 3 months then get moving on treatments.

It was just over 1 month after my wedding I got my BFP and I am now 22+ weeks and glad to say all is going well

Dont ever lose hope girls, the stress of that makes it so much harder

A few symptoms, in case it helps anyone :)
- heavy ovulation cramping on both sides
-low back ache starting around 6dpo
-subtle lie abdomen pulling around 10dpo
-I also took one baby Asprin per day during this month as a recommendation from my Doc.

Miracles happen ya'll! Have hope :)

First BFP - Mild Endo and LPD!

Hi ladies,

So, I always said I would come back to this site and post my BFP story if I ever got one. This site helped me keep faith through so many grueling TWW's! First off let me just say, the month I got the BFP - I had NO idea until I saw the second pink line. NO tell tale symptoms...NOTHING! So don't count yourself out if you don't feel anything. The roller coaster of not feeling anything from 7 dpo and beyond was torture. It always gave me hope when I read about the girls that didn't have any symptoms. I am VERY in-tune with my body and there was NOTHING! Ok... so I had mild endo and a luteal phase defect (luteal phase was less than 8 days sometimes). I had a lap for my endo and Dr said she removed it all. I did one round each of unmonitored Clomid and Femara with my OBGYN right after the lap surgery. No BFP. I went to an RE after this. He put me on Clomid with trigger shot and progesterone and TI. I did this twice with no luck. My RE convinced me to try femara again (I had bad headaches from it the first time). He thought it might work with the added trigger and progesterone. Well this did it! Woohoo! BFP! Took a test about 12 days after the trigger shot and 10 dpo and the line came up right away. I was in TOTAL shock! I am now 17 weeks and things are going well. I had horrible nausea that set in at about 6 weeks and went away around 15 weeks. I now just struggle with bad heartburn, but feel so much better overall. That first tri is rough! I felt like I had the flu! So worth it though. Good luck girls! I know this struggle is awful! Try not to lose hope. It took me 1.5 yrs total from the very start of trying. I went to my OBGYN at about 6 months and told her we had been trying for a year already just to get the ball rolling (I knew something was up. I am older and didn't want to waste any time).

Positive Thoughts-BFP Amen (Clomid & Progesterone)

Hi Everyone,

This has been a long journey but I will keep it simple. I am 33, DH 34; our first. Avg <26 day cycle, 11-13 Luteal Phase.

2012-Laproscopic Surgery to remove 7 Fibroids & Text Book Endometriosis. Dr. said start trying!
2013-Took things lightly trying. No pressure, no real rush but started to feel anxiety
2014-TTC 3 (March, April, August): Went to one doctor she said Clomid would not work, referred me to Fert Specialist and he told me IVF was my only option; I cried and was devastated. Decided to go the semi-natural route. He said it was possibly my tubes, I had chlamydia in the past and it could have never been treated, he never checked to see if I was ovulating or checked my hormone levels.

August 2014-
I didn't give up hope so I started taking pre-natal vitamins
1. I did the fertility cleanse (70% disciplined on that)-Natural Fertility Shop (uterus cleansing)
2. Went to see a massage therapist - 2 times (1 x per month-it's expensive), started enzymes to help my body break down food.
3. Went to a nurse practitioner who worked for several fert specialist in the city; she gave me clomid and progesterone prescription.
4. I took clomid day 3-7, progresteron 5 days after color change on opk. Small amounts of EWCM, and later after ovulation I had Creamy CM.
5. I am 17DPO and I tested 09/15/14 (2x's) , last period was 08/16/14 and I am preggers. I was petrified to test but I did. I will get a blood test tomorrow.

Symptoms: Very little-thirsty, boobs, lil cramping (very mild), metal taste for a few minutes, gaging when brushing my teeth. I use fertility friend and that help pinpoint ovulation and my cycle.

God is good. I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Baby dust to you all who are trying. I know how you feel. Things I did differently-I didn't overly temp after I ovulated to lower my stress level. I also kept thinking positive thoughts; trying to envision being pregnant.

BFP with endometriosis tried for 18 months

Hi all,
I wanted to share my story as I have read the tww stories over and over wishing it was me. We have been trying for 18 months. I have children and my youngest is 7 with the kids I fell straight away with my other children, this time was different we have been trying for 18 months so i gathered something was wrong so I went to a specialist only two weeks ago on the 19th august and I was booked in for a laproscopy, the dye test and the camera that goes through your cervix to look at the uterus and tubes on the 17th September. The doctor had found via ultrasound that my uterus wasn't quite right and I had cysts on my ovaries and the weird thing was he was joking around and said you'll proberly be pregnant next week and today the 29th august I did a pregnancy test as the last 3-4 days I've felt exhausted like I haven't slept at night my boobs were a little sore and I've been getting slight hot flushes I actually thought I may be coming down with the flu but something inside me thought I should buy a test as I haven't brought one in months because it was so disappointing getting the BFN and I would think I'd have pregnancy symptoms and then I would get my period it's a roller coaster of emotions. So this month I was focused on preparing myself for surgery and just gathered I would not get pregnant till I had the surgery. It is so bizarre how it works sometimes I really can't believe it. So I wanted to share my Story to give hope to those that have tried month after month it will happen eventually I think when you least expect it. All the best to you all

BFP With endo- right before 2nd IUI cycle

Don't give up! It can happen! Trying to get pregnant with #2 since December 2011. Diagnosed with mild endo last august after 6 months of clomid. Started seeing RE November of last year and did 3 cycles of famera with no success. Tried our first IUI in April of this year and it failed. Switched jobs (I'm a night shift nurse in an ER) to work in an office setting with daytime hours in June. Literally, I was supposed to order my follistim TODAY for my second IUI cycle. As a precaution I Took a hpt last night before I ordered $1000 worth of medicine- and it immediately came up positive. At 12dpo! I have zero symptoms! I feel like af is coming but I saw my RE today and my serum hcg was 98!!!

It can happen when you least expect it to! Promise!!! I'm still in shock!

Severe Endometriosis and PCOS - 5 weeks pregnant

Hi all! I am writing this because I want to give a positive news for all the women that like me felt desperation and were convinced that they will never get pregnant! I am 34, and I have diagnosed with PCOS when I was 19. I was on the pill for 7 years but then I stopped as it was giving me migraine.I have been in pain for 3 years, during sex, ovulation and my period. But my gp wouldn't listen to me. In October I got a private appointment and they discovered 4 cysts of 5 cm each on my ovaries. I got laparoscopy in Feb to get rid of them. They were indeed chocolate cysts due to my endo. I have been referred for IVF...and I was waiting for my period, that never came! I got a BFP! I am 5 weeks pregnant, naturally!! I am very scared it could be ectopic...very difficult with endo understanding if the pain and cramps are normal! But hey ladies if they tell you you can't get pregnant don't believe them!!our body is not as perfect as others women but we still work!! I am crossing my fingers for myself now... and baby dust to all of you!

BFP with severe endometriosis

I still can't wrap my head around it because we've tried for 5 years and I've pretty much given up. I'm 40 yrs old and will 41 in Dec. I just started a new job in June so this was so unexpected. When I first was ttc 5 years ago, I did all the charts, opks and nothing was working. I had some severe pain with my cycles that ended up being a cyst on my uterus. I had surgery and that's when they found my endo. They had us try to conceive for 6 months after to see if it would work but nothing. I than did 6 months of lupron and it than took a long time for my cycles to start back up. When they did I try Fermara. After that didn't work I was told to seek help with a Fertility Clinic. My insurance doesn't cover it so I haven't tried. So years later I ironically work for a Fertility clinic. I've only been they for a little over a month and now pregnant. Not the best timing but I'm thrilled. This is my first so I couldn't be happier.

I haven't been tracking anything but I know I was going to ovulate when we bd'd because of my cm. We bd'd 3 times around my ovulation. I guess it was enough. My only clue that something was up was my bbs were killing me at cd27. I normally start by than and my bbs normally don't hurt when I start. It's now cd29. No af. I average 25-26 days. I'm really tired and a fees cramps but otherwise feeling good. I needed to just know what's up so I stopped at the dollar store to get a hpt. And.....two pink lines. Please don't give up. Anything can happen

BFP with IVF!!!

Finally I get to post! So here's my story (its a long one)...
Im 28 and DH 34, we got married on Feb '12 and we Started trying for our first on Sep '12 using ovulation sticks and preseed but nothing happened. My cycles started getting super long so I went to my ob in March and was diagnosed with PCOS, so I got started on metformin and in April did a medicated cycle (follistim and trigger) with timed intercourse. By October I had done 4 of those and nothing had happened. Thats when my doc said we had to get all the fertility tests, my DH was perfect but on my HSG one of my tubes was blocked so doc recommended we do IUI. We then did 2 of those and still nothing.
Thats when they found 2 chocolate cysts which they told me were from endo and had to get a lap surgery, so I had the lap and was diagnosed with stage IV endo and had tubal damage. Thats when docs told me IVF was my only option and the fastest way to get pregnant before my endo came back. So I went on bcp for a month and then started my IVF cycle. I had my egg retrieval in May, they retrieved 29 follicles and 19 were fertilized normally. I had two day 5 blastocysts transfered and everything went great and on day 6 they froze 4 embrios which turned out to be better quality than the ones they transfered. After 9 days I got my BFP, I did have cramping and pulling which I thought was implantation but all those symptoms I imagined were the progesterone I was taking. I took a month off with bcp and then as soon as I got AF I started my FET cycle which was easier except for the progesterone shots which I still have to take. They also transfered 2 grade 4AB embrios on July 10th and today after such a long wait got my first BFP, I took a hpt and a faint line appeared!! I also went to get my beta and it was 44 and it was increasing but wasn't doubling, it was 43 14dpo, 66 16dpo, 125 18dpo then 310 20dpo and 3868 26dpo when I went for an ultrasound and saw a sac at 5 weeks 5 days!
The only symptoms I had were cramping and pulling but Ive had that before, not even my bbs hurt.
What I did for both IVF and FET, I took FertilAid up until transfer then I switched to Prenatals, took Omega 3, baby aspirin, vitamin C and folic acid. Ate pineapple core for 5 days starting on the day of transfer, good fats like avocado and brazil nuts, coconut water and hot water with lemon everyday (supposed to help make the body alkaline.) I dont know if any of this worked but its what I did.
I go back at 7.3 weeks to see the heartbeat so wish me luck!!
Good luck to everyone!!!
