Endometriosis and IUI

Is anyone on here pursuing IUI who has endometriosis? I was reading that the odds of success for someone with severe endometriosis is around 5% and now I'm just feeling really bummed out. There is currently a baby shower going on for a lady downstairs at work that told me she wasn't even trying  :/ I think I might punch something today.

  • I am sorry, I don't have any answers. Where did you read that stat? I hate stats. I feel like they can change depending on who's hands you are being treated by.

    I decided last year after my 4th surgery to come clean. I am not shy at work about my issues. In return, most people don't tell me their oops stories. Win, win? Try not to punch any pregnant women. I know it can be hard sometimes - ha.
