Not sure if I've posted in here or not before, but since I can't remember I'll do a short intro since I now know officially that I'm having some kind of infertility problems.
DH and I have been married for about a year and a half and decided to start TTC about 9 months ago. We knew beforehand that I had PCOS so we knew it could take some time and also knew there might be complication since I'm immune compromised due to an immune disease that I was born with. What we didn't know was that it would get a LOT more complicated than we ever imagined. I've always had terrible cysts. One of them nearly killed me six years ago as it ruptured and I waited way too long to go to the ER and had already lost a lot of blood. I had surgery and they fixed it but it was a long recovery losing so much blood. Over the years I've had many giant cysts that surprised the doctors but haven't had another one bleed like that. PCOS was finally suggested and while I don't really fit the symptoms so much they figured I have it and it must be mild. Well, finally broke down and went to the RE after 9 cycles of trying and 3 failed cycles on Clomid even though I hyperovulated every time. The RE things it's endometriosis and I'm currently being evaluated.
I'm pretty sure he's going to recommend surgery...the more I read about it the more I'm sure that's what it is. I've been on the pill for the majority of my adult life, only coming off of it for a few months here and there to try a different one or something and he thinks the endo wasn't able to grow. I've now been off of the pill for a year and each AF gets worse and worse. The pain is getting pretty serious and I spend two weeks before sick to my stomach. I've also noticed any time I've had an ultrasound during AF I have cysts all over both ovaries. In a few days I go in for an ultrasound and an exam with the RE, get blood work results, and then we'll discuss what's next. Does anyone know how quickly they'll schedule the lap? I'd like to get it over with ASAP as I'm sick to death of jumping through hoops and just ready to really be trying to have a baby already. I feel like the last 9 months have already been a waste in a way and I know if he thinks I should have surgery I should but part of me just doesn't want to. I'm always having medical procedures done with the immune illness I have and sometimes I get so tired of it. I just hate that it's happening with TTC too.
Any advice anyone can give would be so greatly appreciated. Infertility is just so much harder to deal with than I ever imagined. Sometimes I wonder if we'll ever get that baby we dream about so much.
