There are a lot of women who are able to conceive with a retroverted uterus. I would talk to your doctor about your options. A friend of mine has endo and a retroverted uterus and was able to eventually conceive naturally. Me, on the other hand, had to go through a lot of fertility treatments but did eventually conceive and am now the happy mom to a beautfiul little boy. Good luck!View Thread
Shannon - diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis during laparoscopic surgery in March 2011. TTC baby 1 :-)
Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've posted, things have been kind of crazy lately.
My husband and I took the giant step yesterday and met with a reprodcutive endocrinologist. It was bitter sweet, but in short she said with the severity of my endometriosis she was pushing us towards going directly to IVF treatments as opposed to some of the other treatments out there.
IVF is significantly more expensive than IUI, and I was just hoping I could get some thoughts on this...? Anyone else told the same thing but opted for the IUI with successful results?
As some of you may know, I am still fairly new to the whole endometriosis world. I was diagnosed with it in March during a lap surgery and I never even knew what it was before then.
So here's my question, is it possible for the surgery to make symptoms worse?
Aside from the heavy periods I never really had any endo symptoms. No pain, nothing.
In the past 2 or 3 months however, I feel AWFUL! If I wasn't getting a regular period I would swear that I was preggers. I am constantly nautious, I have "period like" cramps every day. My right ovary seems to feel the worse and sometimes I get a burning feeling along with the cramps. I have headache's just about every day. I feel like I am living off of Ibuprofen and I never feel like I have gotten enough sleep, I am always SO TIRED! To top it all off, right before I get my period for the last 2 cycles I have a solid week of diarrhea (sorry for the TMI)
Any ideas on what is going on?? I'm not taking any medication at all, except for the Ibuprofen for head aches.
