BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with Endometriosis

I tell you what: nothing soothes the soul like a whole web page dedicated to the stories of ladies just like yourself who have successfully gotten pregnant with endometriosis.

That's what you'll find here: real life BFP stories from ladies with real life cases of endometriosis. These kind ladies have provided their stories to let you know you're not alone, and that there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Because you're not alone. And there is a light. Really.

So check out these stories, and be sure to send us your story when it happens for you. I also highly recommend that you check out FertilAid for Women success stories for women with endometriosis. It's quite inspirational.

BFP on Break Cycle with Endometriosis

During the last year, these stories really gave me the encouragement to keep going, so I wanted to post mine and hopefully help someone else.

DH and I started TTC in Aug 04. We started charting in Dec. 04. I have a family history of endo and I had many symptoms of endo. I found a great OBGYN who took my symptoms seriously and believed me when I told him I was in pain. He offered in March to do a lap but I still wanted to wait (I was in my first year of teaching high school, my life was really stressful, and thought a relaxing summer break would do the trick). In September I had an hsg. One tube was open, one was delayed, and because things just didn't "look right" according to my dr, I had a CT that day as well, which still didn't look right. On Oct. 24, I finally had my lap. My dr. found stage 2 endo and was able to remove it all. My left ovary was completely covered in endo, my right ovary had spots, there was scar tissue all over my uterus, but my tubes were clear. He gave us the go ahead to start TTCing again right away. The first month I think we bd'd more than the last 4 years of our marriage combined!!! No BFP.

The second month we just did it to do it (I had finals to write, DH was working overtime, life was busy). I tested on New Year's Eve (I just wanted to see if I could drink or not) and got a BFP. I tested three more times on New Year's Day (didn't believe the first test) and still got BFP's. There's hope!

I wish you all the best of luck and I hope to read your success stories soon!

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.
