Hi! I just had a laparoscopy on May 25 to diagnose and treat endometriosis. The doctor did find endo but said my ovaries, tubes, and uterus look good and we should get pregnant soon after surgery. He put me on aygestin/Norethidrone 5mg 1x daily to keep my period from starting after surgery. I was on this medication from 5/17-6/14. Apparently the dosage wasn't high enough to combat my hormones bc AF started on 5/30 just 5 days after surgery. I went off the Norethidrone on 6/14 at my post op. Is it possible that I still could have ovulated on 6/16-6/18 even having been on that medication? The doctor said it could take 14-30 days before I ovulate but I just don't think the dosage was strong enough (everything I've read says you need to take 2-3x a day to postpone AF). I'm so ready to get pregnant as we have been trying for a while now and I don't want my endo to grow back! Pregnancy and breastfeeding will help keep endometriosis at bay for a while. I haven't been feeling like myself the past few days (super emotional and sensitive which is not normal for me) and I want to attribute it to PMS or hormonal changes. Any advice would be helpful!

Hey there,
Sadly I don't have any advice regarding the meds you used or any personal experience but I did had a lap and i did O around 2days later after my lap and my period was right on time,the doc said i was ready to try the next cycle.
You know your body better than anyone,only you know if you did O or not,sadly I can't help you with that.
Good luck!!
