Weird cycles, TTC, Endo, Chem Preg?

Postby Leigh2732 » Thu Nov 12, 2015 2:00 pm

About two years ago, at the age of 29, I went to the ER with really bad abdominal pain. I left three days later after having a 5 cm Endometrioma removed from my left ovary. The doctor said I have endometriosis. I have had additional ovarian cysts show up since then, but just functional cysts that have disappeared on their own.

Six months ago, I had my IUD removed so that my husband and I could start trying. I've been taking a prenatal, omega 3s, and Co Q 10. This month, at 10dpo and 11dpo, I got four positive pregnancy tests. Then on 12dpo, they started fading. On 13dpo, they were negative, I started bleeding, and now, I'm on my period full force. So that super duper sucks. It was our anniversary anfew days ago, and we went out to dinner, and I told him I was pregnant, I said, "heres to marraige... And parenthood!" And we were elated for about 48 hours... Started thinking about names and all those fun things... Ugh... I have been a wreck and can't stop crying. I'm assuming it's a chemical pregnancy, right? Is this more common for ladies with endo?

So the weird periods thing... This month my cycle was 25 days long. About half of my cycles are your clockwork 28 day cycles, then the other half are 24-25 days. I'm assuming that the wicked short ones are the ones where my damaged ovary is "in charge". Does that mean I'm making bad eggs those months too? Could that be why I lost it? Is there anything I can do?

Has anyone else ever had anything similar?

Thank you for any advice or kind words you can provide. I truly appreciate it.

Hi leigh, I had the same experience happen with a chemical pregnancy. It does suck. I remember doing the same thing I even signed up on this app to see how big my baby was. I haven't had lap. to be diagnosed with endo yet. My doctor wants me to think about it.

If it helps at all my doctor told me that the chemical pregnancy gives her hope because it tells her that at least one of my tubes isn't blocked. Hang in there! How have you been doing lately?

Thanks for the reply.

I've been okay lately. Decided to take this month "off" of trying. Still having quite a bit of Endo pain, I ovulated on my "bad" ovary this month, and OUCH! I'm afraid I might have another endometrioma because of how painful it was. Almost afraid to get it checked, my surgery was such a traumatic experience. But I know I should, maybe I'll call my doc after Thanksgiving.

That's a good point about the chem pregnancy giving some hope.

Thanks again!
