About three years ago I was having problems about every 6 months with severe pain in my side. The first time was in the summer and I tried to go running but couldn't b/c my side hurt then it hurt worse and worse. So my OB said it must have been a ruptured cyst.
Then the night of my college graduation part I had sharp pains and went up to the bathroom and just got really hot then cold and just kinda fell to the floor. I was taken to the ER only to find that I had a ruptured cyst... so they said...So days later i was still very ill couldn't eat or walk...so they thought I was having an appendicitis (SP)...so the Surgeon who did my surgury found the appendix was fine that I just had some blood from yup a ruptured cyst. Cleaned me up and off I went... Then again 6 months later it happened again. I was very ill for about three weeks and my OB had scheduled a lap to explore for that dreaded word ENDO!
So I never made it to lap date I went to the ER where my OB was about two weeks early I couldn't take it anymore. They found my bowel had formed lesions to my ovaries. I had endo on my left ovary in many spots and then only one spot on the right.
So since we weren't married yet we were getting married in Oct and this was Aug. We decided to go with Lupron Depot and what a mistake that was, the horrible side effects!!!
So we started ttc in February 05. But as soon as the lupron wore off I had major pain all over again. So I went to an RE b/c my OB wasn't really answering any of my questions. He just told me to take pain killers.
So the first RE I went to didn't really love and I felt like they just had everyone on a schedule so we did two medicated clomid cycles with IUI with them and then I found my new RE whom i love.
He explained that I had a LPD from my charts of irratic temps it was obvious. And that we could get preggers on our own but it would be faster if medicated and try IUIs.
So his orders clomid from CD2-7, HCG Trigger, HCG boosters on 3dpo and 6dpo and progestrone suppositories 2dpo on....
so after a total of 6 medicated cycles and 4 iuis here we are preggers.
we got preggers on our own no IUI we decided to try since the IUI would be on a Monday morning traffic is horrible to get to downtown Baltimore from PA...and what do you know we are preggers...
My advice be aggressive!!! Time is your fertility with Endo!!! If you think your OB is not as knowledgable as you might want go to an RE they do this as their living and know what they are doing!!!
