Second cycle after Lap

Postby MayB » Mon Jan 14, 2013 2:05 pm

Hey lovely ladies,

I have been TTC with DH for just over 3 years now. I had my first lap done in November last year where they removed Endo mostly from my bowel & puch of Douglas (ovaries/uterus/tubes clear) so I'm on my 2nd full cycle since the lap. This month I have had sore/swollen bbs since AF stopped and lots of "mini" cramps in my lower stomach. I was on progesterone last cycle but am having a month off from blood test tracking/medication as the fertility clinic closed for a while over the holiday season and we decided to have a month off. Just wondering if this could be my body making adjustments after the lap or if this might be my body coming off the progesterone?

It's really hard to tell sometimes PMS can mimic pregnancy symptoms but if all these symptoms are new to you It could be It. I went thru a laparoscopy about 6-7 years ago, and It was very effective, my endo was so bad that when my period came I had to take the day off from school and work to be in bed crying with pain and throwing up. Right after surgery I felt major improvement with the cramping and that was a sign everything was working better inside me cause I was worried If I could even get pregnant but I had my son 1.5 years after when I wasn't even trying to get pregnant. It was a big surprise for me. Now I'm planning to TTC in about 2 months. I say listen to your body and Hope You are preg. you have more possibilities now that is for sure.
