My story so far - sorry if it is long
I have been under a gynacologist now for over 15 years as I have endometriosis. In 2001 I tried to conceive with my then husband, was told i had a high FSH level at age 29 so I would need an egg donor and IVF (only tested me once to make this decision) but turned out my husband azoospermia so that ended there.
I am now in another relationship and my partner already has a child and we have been trying to conceive now for 2 years with Clomid on and off. I only have 1 ovary as I had the other removed 2 years ago because of an endometriotic cyst but the endometriosis wasnt very active anywhere else so shouldnt be causing problems with conception. I have had blood test showing my FSH was 10 and then another saying it was off the chart (very high) so he my gyni thinks I am perimenopausal. All my progesterone test are ok. I have tried Clomid and although it has worked at the beginning it seemed to stop the ovary working for a few months.
My cycles are quite regular (28 days) when my ovary is working but every cycle the week before usually from day 21 onwards it is like something goes wrong. My discharge starts to go pink then gets darker each day until i start my period and by that time is dark brown / black then the fresh blood comes. This month, however, it is still black blood and no fresh red at all. This old blood has only been there for the past 2 years since having my other ovary removed. Not sure what is happening and should i just give it up as I have just gone 39 (yesterday) so feel it is just never going to happen for me and my time is up!!!!
Your opinions would be greatly appreciated or anyone similar??????? Just someone that knows anything??
Thanks for listening.
