Laporascopic surgery for fertility at 33 TTC#1

Postby losalfaro » Thu Apr 25, 2013 11:39 am

Hello ladies,
I'm 33, hubby 43 but in good condition. We are still TTC #1 for the past 10 years of marriage. Been pregnant 4 times, 3 ectopics and 1 miscarriage. We've recently moved to TX, I'm not working, hubby wants me to distress and get fertility stuff done while unemployed. We've seen an RE who recommends laparoscopic surgery since all my past studies say that I have nothing wrong. I'll be having that done in 2 weeks and when I start new AF then we'll start IUI. I'm very excited but a bit nervous now that it's almost here. My AF is very late this month, so RE wants me to take b/c to normalize it, I don't want to take b/c for I think it will delay my TTC even more.
Anyone have experience in laparoscopic surgery for infertility and was it a success to achieve a pregnancy? Thanks for sharing.

Hi losalfaro!

Wow, you've been through a lot already! That's great that you can focus on getting fertile!

I had a lap in dec 2012. I had mild endo removed as well as uterine polyps. Ive also got pcos (clomid helped RE to diagnose). Still waiting for our bfp through IVF sometime in June.

I've heard several stories of ladies having success after laps w IUI or other methods. It's the only way to truly diagnose endo. I say go for it!

Best wishes!
