Hi all! I’m new here. I’ve been dealing with unexplained infertility for about 2 years. We have tried Femara with timed intercourse as well as iui with Femara and Ovidrel 3 times. My husband found out last month he has a small vericocele, which he plans to have corrected in a few months. Once he has that corrected we will either try iui with injectables or just go right to invitro, we’re still deciding which one.
So my question for you all is, should I have a laparoscopy to check for endometriosis too? My RE says we can check for it but that considering I don’t have any family history of it and no glaringly obvious symptoms, it’s likley that I don’t have it. However, the reason I question it is because while I don’t have painful or heavy periods (in fact my periods have gotten a lot shorter, 1.5-2 days, and lighter), I do get some unexplained sharp pains as well as pinching feelings in my pelvic area often throughout the month. I sort of think, “why not just check to make sure it’s not a contributing factor?” But DH says “why have an unnecessary procedure?”. Just looking for advice! Thank you!!
